A San Francisco Treat with Hilton’s Parc 55
As the third largest hotel in San Francisco, Hilton’s Parc 55, a pet friendly property, is bustling with energy. A walk through the lobby suggests a warm, boutique hotel, with modern, contemporary touches. Staff are warm, welcoming, friendly and professional. Parc 55 can accommodate groups of any size, with 30,000 square feet of meeting space.
High Tech from Lobby to Fitness
There are convenient high-tech elements throughout the Parc 55 that show attention to detail. From the complimentary charging stations in the lobby, to the synchronized elevators that reduce wait times. Most importantly, the room offers ample charging options, including a wireless charger built into the radio. Computer access is available from the business center.
Let’s not forget the expansive fitness center, open 24-7, with the most up-to-date technology equipment that’s cell phone compatible. You’ll never wait for equipment, as this is one of the largest hotel gyms in San Francisco.
A Perfect Score for Walkers
TripAdvisor assigns a perfect score of 100 for walkers, which means that location can’t be beat. The Parc 55 is close to the largest Chinatown in North America and to the hubbub of the Financial District. It’s only one block to world famous Market Street and the historic Powell Street cable car. Union Square is around the corner and all the shopping you could ever hope for envelops the neighborhood. A scenic 30-minute walk to Fisherman’s wharf can fill one’s day from dusk to dawn.
One of the biggest attractions these days seems to be the Museum of Ice Cream, just next door. For public transportation, BART station is across the street with direct routing to the main airport. Car and bike rentals are within close proximity.
Spacious Rooms with Panoramic Views
Rooms are spacious and offer amazing 180-degree skyline views thanks to the clever architecture and bay windows. Get a birds eye view of San Francisco from the higher floors. The only challenge being that you might never want to leave your room!
Parc 55’s standard rooms are larger than average, immaculate, comfortable, modern and quiet. Each room comes with a digital tablet that serves as a guidebook to San Francisco, offering abundant information on how to explore the best that the hotel and city have to offer. This tablet lists dining options, hotel amenities, useful phone numbers and even transportation options. If you forgot deodorant or a toothbrush, call Guest Services via the tablet.
Foodies Can Celebrate Here
The multitude of food options between the Parc 55 and its sister Hilton property across the street is very impressive. Eat at either of the properties and charge the meal directly to your room.
An Award Winning Asian and American Breakfast
Start the day with the full buffet breakfast, rated as a top buffet in San Francisco, due in large part to the wide range of American and Asian options. The spread of freshly baked pastries, including almond croissants, fresh fruits, cereals, nuts, steel cut oatmeal, meats, cheeses, eggs, congee, stir-fried noodles and cod, as well as a la carte options.
This eatery located in the sister Hilton Union Square far exceeds expectations. An eclectic menu to satisfy any palette is exciting and inventive. Pacific Northwest lingcod was cooked to perfection. The carrot sponge cake with mascarpone creme and orange crumble cinnamon macaron was spectacular to look at and the perfect top off to a delightful meal.
