Opened in October 2016, Tilden Hotel is steps from posh shops and restaurants and serves as a bridge between Union Square and San Francisco's up-and-coming Tenderloin district. Known as an artist’s enclave, the neighbourhood maintains the gritty appearance of its rougher days but is experiencing a resurgence of galleries and studios. The boutique hotel’s 1928 façade was kept intact, while the building was recently overhauled from top to bottom. Open, airy spaces feature cherry wood walls, and the property embraces the local community by curating artwork, furniture and even minibar snacks from small Californian businesses.

The intimate property has just 118 rooms and suites, each featuring white walls with sharp, high-gloss black trimmings as well as handcrafted wood headboards and plantation shutters over the large windows. Modern amenities like iHome docking stations, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and minifridges come standard, as well as toiletries by Malin + Goetz and Marvis. Guests can choose between two double beds or one queen/king bed; for additional space, guests can upgrade to suites with second bathrooms and separate living areas with sofa beds. All accommodations feature keyless entry, allowing visitors to access their rooms through an app.

Guests can enjoy Equator Coffee as well as a slew of teas and breakfast pastries at the newly opened Cafe at the Tilden. The Douglas Room is a cocktail-focused restaurant serving seasonal California cuisine to pair with craft spirits and liquors from across the globe. Room service is available from the restaurant. Guests have access to the hotel’s limited fitness centre 24 hours a day, and the hummingbird garden found on the ground floor is a quiet retreat from the bustling city beyond the gate.

There is no air conditioning so travels need to know this especially when SF is warm.

Loved my time her for the night, but Staff had no clue about the $20 Mini Bar Credit and $20 Cafe Credit. Also they were going to charge me double for the Resort "Facility Fee", which was already included in the TravelZoo charge. Had to plead with her to take it off which she eventually did which was nice.

They forgot to "apply" my $20 voucher and if I had not double-checked at check out, I would not have received it.

The plumbing was atrocious. No hot water in bathroom sink. Drain in sink did not work. The last 2 days no hot water in shower . The small elevator was out of service for 6 hours one day and the next day the whole morning it was out. We were on 6th floor. I forgot to mention the first room they gave us on check in had no light in closet area so you could not see anything and had not a normal size sink or shower. We changed immediately The exercise room is a joke One rowing machine and one stationery bike in a closet area Complete

The music was a little loud in the lobby. Didn't make it a welcoming place to hang out.
