Perfect for anyone visiting San Francisco

Garciajen98 on Aug 08, 2022

I frequently visit San Francisco and after a while you learn which neighborhoods are lively and which ones to avoid. I typically stay in north beach but this time I decided to try out a new place and oh my god it was the right choice. The Beacon Grand has such an amazing location! Rule of thumb, do not drive in San Francisco. The city has a vibe of walking and public transportation (bart, muni, etc). Driving is inconvenient because of the lack of parking and high prices. With that said, the Beacon Grand is so convenient that the muni is right across the street which means a straight way to little Italy, Chinatown, japantown, fisherman’s wharf, and so much more. If you prefer to use the BART, it is only a 10 min walk. With the BART, you can visit many other districts near union square which is where the Beacon Grand is located. If you prefer a walk, you could go down the street towards Powell and find that it’s filled with many shopping opportunities. Late night? Hungry? No problem. If you leave the hotel you’ll find that McDonald’s is right around the corner, no need to cross the street or walk far. Want a fuller dining experience? The Cheesecake Factory is down the street just two lights away in the Macys building. Or if you’re just looking for snacks, Walgreens and 7-11 are right in front of the hotel you’ll just cross the street and you’re there. But here’s the best part of this hotel, the staff are very friendly, professional, and willing to help with anything you need. Leif in particular was a gem, he was so helpful when I had a problem with an electrical issue in my room. I was moved to a different room free of charge! In fact, I was given drink vouchers as an apology as well as a bag of Ghirardelli caramel chocolates for free! They didn’t have to, but they went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. Not to mention, the rooms themselves are so beautiful. They even provide shampoo, conditioner, and body wash! Trust me, they smell so good and leave you feeling like a baby’s bottom. If you are trying to decide whether or not this is a good hotel, I can reassure you that this is a GREAT hotel. I would absolutely return! I cannot wait to visit San Francisco soon! Thanks again Leif and staff! :)

Great Grand Opening

returntonormandy on Aug 07, 2022

We are stoked the Beacon Grand is finally open for visitors. Remodeled rooms and full bar with great service all around was worth the wait. We hear they will begin serving food soon, which is great, another reason to return next time we’re in Union Square!
