Lots of hotels strive to be hip, but this irreverent, Mid-century motor lodge in San Francisco's Tenderloin has a rock 'n' roll soul with more than a little edge.

Not surprisingly, it was named one of America’s coolest hipster hotels by Travel + Leisure in 2012.

Guests Are Saying

  • The service was perfect! The staff was informative and friendly. All my questions and concerns were their highest concern and don't get me started on the rooms! LOL. They were all I wanted and more. I love the location and atmosphere!  - stephanieGomez, TripAdvisor
  • The hotel staff was great friendly, courteous & engaging. The housekeeping staff kept our room spotless. In fact, one staff member saw me walking in the rain and ran out with an umbrella to keep me from getting wet. What great service! It is a great place to stay and reasonably priced. My husband & I will be back.  - Debbie_Z_2011, TripAdvisor
  • We were going to a concert at the Great American Hall and the Phoenix Hotel was recommended to us. The hotel is retro from the old motels of the 60-70's. The rooms have been updated but it still has the retro feel. There is free parking, which is a plus in SF. The staff was very friendly and helpful with a map, places to eat, etc.  - SBCATraveler, TripAdvisor
  • The staff we're another highlight... a lot of character but zero attitude. Every single member of staff was really helpful and played a really big part in why we were able to enjoy the city as much as we did. The atmosphere there was very welcoming, relaxed, and comfortable.  - BrunoTravers, TripAdvisor
