Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Planned a little staycation with the family (2 kids, ages 3 and 1) while my husband was in town for a conference. The location of the Donatello was within a block of Union Square, and a mile to the Embarcadero, with plenty of restaurants nearby. There was even a MUNI stop right around the corner. Also, plan on paying $32 each night for valet parking if you bring a vehicle.

    Our room was spacious and the kitchenette was a great amenity. The staff of the hotel was more than helpful. They made sure we had a pack-n-play for our infant and were willing to answer any of our questions. They also made a point to welcome us back every time we came back from a busy day of sightseeing, and always called us by our names, including the kids.

    The only thing I didn't like was being bugged about listening to a sales pitch (this location is a timeshare). We did get out of it on account of our kids but you may not be so lucky. But having said that, I would still stay here again.

    I'm happy to hear you had a nice time and felt the room was spacious enough.
    The sales pitch, for future reference, you do not have to listen to any sales pitch, go on any tour/presentation, you can bypass the 'go see concierge'. I'm very sorry you had to go through that attempt by the timeshare division for a tour.

    Thank you again for reserving through me.

  • my husband and I stayed in Eric's studio and it was perfect. It is right off of Union Square and couldn't be more convenient. We were completely comfortable and we will stay there again. Eric was an excellent post and there were absolutely no glitches.

  • It was not immediately obvious to me that this was a timeshare setup through the Donatello Hotel. So, this is not your typical Airbnb experience. It's more of a mid-level, mid quality hotel experience. Due to this setup, the check-in process was not completely smooth. I basically had to give them the name of my host, because they said that my name was attached to a reservation rather than on the reservation itself.

    That said, you get normal hotel amenities. If you search for San Francisco Donatello, you will see all of the reviews of this property readily and easily and know what you are getting into.

    Thank you again for reserving through me. It's a hotel, timeshare, condo. That is something new that the reservation wasn't under your name and needed my name. I will contact mgr today to see why this was the case.

  • The room was very nice. Very comfortable king size bed, with huge pillows. Check in was super simple, just like we were a hotel guest. Location was one block from Union Square, which was good for being near public transportation and food options. Quite crowded streets, expectedly. We only had one full day, during which we biked the Golden Gate to Sausalito and then did a night tour of Alcatraz - both activities launching from Fisherman's Wharf area. For this, a Union Square location wasn't the most convenient but still doable. LOTS of shopping options near the hotel, if that's your thing. Felt very safe, though we weren't out past 10pm either night, so I can't speak to that.

  • We've had an excellent stay at The Donatello. The staff were ever so helpful. The suite was very comfortable and cozy. A great place to relax in after exploring San Francisco. We'd happily stay here again on a next visit to San Francisco. Well recommended!

  • Eric was a terrific host. He was a phenomenal communicator, and he really went out of his way to make sure things went well.

    There was actually a slight snafu with the last minute booking (not his fault), and he was able to get me into a Presidential Suite for the same price.

    I would definitely rent through him again.

  • This is our second time staying at this property and we had a very enjoyable experience. The room is large with a queen size bed and very comfortable sleeper couch and we were easily able to sleep 4 adults. The room is very well stocked with a kitchenette, flat screen TV, iron, hairdryer and immaculately clean bathroom. Check in & Check out were a breeze as this property is located in a hotel & we were able to take advantage of the wonderful rooftop lounge for tea and coffee. Reserving a room through Eric was very easy and his response was always very prompt

  • We had a great stay - this is a hotel, with hotel amenities, and the room was big and the bed comfortable. Location is great and Eric was prompt and helpful. Looking at the other reviews on this site, I agree with the positive comments, but am surprised that no one mentioned the hard sell at check-in to attend a breakfast and learn more about buying a time-share with the company that owns the hotel. It took us awhile to figure out what was going on, and when we did, we said we wouldn't be interested (despite a free breakfast and cash gift) but it took awhile to extricate ourselves. That said, we've dined out on the story (there were some humorous bits) a few times, so don't regret it. And don't think this in any way reflects on Eric as a host, as he was great. In summary, would definitely stay here again.

  • Stay was great. Wasn't aware this was a time share, but location and price was great. Recommended.
