Funky SoMa hotel serves up retro style and custom burgers

With a whitewashed pop-culture style straight out of South Beach, the Americania is one of the funkiest hotels in all of San Francisco. Each guestroom features retro-style furnishings and board games. Elsewhere around the property, understated references (think murals) to classic American pastimes abound. Custom Burger & Lounge, the on-site eatery, serves up -- what else? -- traditional American fast food. In a nod to modernity, all guests receive complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access.

Highlights
  • Funky retro style
  • Walk to Union Square or AT&T Park
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Dine on traditional American fast food at on-site burger joint
Rooms

With retro-style furnishings and shout-outs to 1950s American culture, all of the Americania's 143 rooms and 11 suites offer journeys back in time. Modern conveniences include flat-screen televisions and hair dryers. Special family rooms also have pull-out sofa beds. Many rooms offer breathtaking views of the city skyline, and there's complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Pets are welcome.

Features

The hotel encircles a tranquil fountain courtyard -- a perfect spot to unwind with a good book on a sunny day.

All guests have access to an on-site fitness center, an outdoor pool and a game room. Dry-cleaning, guest laundry services and self-parking are available (fees apply).

 

Grab a burger and fries at Custom Burger & Lounge, a kitschy-but-lovable hamburger joint on-site.

Nice room for a vocation-type trip.

Everything is fine except for the price that is kind of high, since this is still motel-type place.

Nice room.

The only concern is probably about the price, which is relatively high considering that it is still a motel-type place.

Marathon Weekend

Hotel bathroom had small bugs in the tub and when I pulled down the sheets their was a large hair from the housekeeper ... Not sure how she missed it. Hotel staff were super friendly and helpful but hotel was not very clean in general and it's very noisy opening into common courtyard.

Convenient and clean

I like this place - it's very comfortable with a fun, funky decor. The breakfast and burger joint attached is wonderful. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was very helpful. I chose this place for the convenience of walking to the Moscone Center, but the surrounding neighborhood is the definition of urban blight which is the only negative to staying here. Good value for the price.

Alternative to Fisherman Wharf Hotel

I wanted to be able to park my car however the parking was Valet only and that was slightly perturbing however the attendants were incredibly nice. The staff is extremely nice here. My one complaint is that the location may be very dicey. It is not tenderloin district yet outside my third floor window there was constant fighting and shouting and screaming ALL night every night and after the five nights of no sleep I had to beg a room change. I could not believe the staff never heard complaints before. They seemed unaware that there was a vagrant population outside on the streets below. I find that hard to beileve being from a city myself. The upgrade room was much nicer, courtyard facing and had a minifridge. I m hesitant to book a package now with all three included as I think the room they give you is substandard. I will book separately from now on. This is a complaint I have with blocks reserved for agencies, and not with the hotel. I do not want to have to be given a substandard room because I booked my travel package with an online company. I also did my car rental and airlines. I really do not know what my cost breakdown was. As well to note, Parking overnight for each night was $34. so that added up as well. I m not sure if all hotels charge their guests for parking in the garage in the hotel. There is no airconditioning. I needed it and it was still June.
