"This little hotel is charming and a great price for the location. It seems like it was probably one of the older hotels in the area, but has been nicely upgraded. The room was clean and comfortable, had lots of character, and I slept great every night. The restaurant/bar off the lobby had delicious food, and the cafe makes a mean flat white which, with the guest discount, costs less than $3... which is a miracle in downtown SF! I will definitely be staying here again on my business trips to SF."

I stayed at the Tildon as part of a group booking for Dreamforce, and stayed for 6 nights. The reception staff (Manny) was really friendly, attentive and helpful from check in, all through the week, right until checkout. The rooms are compact, but clean, refreshed daily, and everything you need for a week in SF! The location of the hotel was within a 15minute walk to Moscone, a 10min walk to union square. The bar was cute, drinks and service brilliant. I can't fault this place at all - highly recommend it!
