About The Downtown District

A Rich History and Bright Future

Today, Downtown San Francisco remains a hub for artists and musicians while maintaining its working class roots and displaying the city's historic grit. Embracing a new wave of artists, galleries restaurants, bars, cafes, and an influx of new development and activity, Union Square and the Tenderloin are set in the heart of the Downtown district, within walking distance of some of San Francisco's other exciting neighborhoods, including Nob Hill, Russian Hill, SoMa, and Hayes Valley.

Tilden Hotel Guest Reviews:

"I stayed here for 4 nights and I have to say that this little boutique hotel has a lot to offer
- it is located near union square. The location is perfect as everything is walking distance (retail stores, restaurants and cafes, transport etc.)
- the hotel room is very cosy and presentation overall is good. King sized bed, flat screen tv and fast wifi are all major good points
- the hotel has an old world charm that is rare to find these days
- Also the staff were very friendly and more than happy to answer enquiries"

"Great location, easy access to BART. Clean and friendly. Very helpful at the reception.
Walking distance from union square and powell station. compact rooms but well kept. There was rennovation on so did not get to explore much of the hotel otherwise."

"Walking in, the staff was really nice. The check in and check out process was easy. The decor was pretty cool. I really enjoy staying at places with some personality and you can tell they put some thought into everything."
