  • The BEST bathhouse in the U.S.
    I'm from so cal but I've been coming to Steamworks for a few years now and it's the best bathhouse I've ever been to. Expansive, clean, and ALL types of guys can be found here. There's Reviewer HappyD - 39/M Not you? Sign in as a different reviewer something for everyone. I just went on the Sat before Folsom St Fair and it was off the hook. Waited four hours for a room, this place was the most packed I've ever seen, at least 200 people. 1 - 2 hour wait on weekends is normal for a room, but it was never like this. The Eucalyptus steamroom is the best around, although small. The play areas and sexual energy here are great. All kinds of northern CA boys come to this place and it's the only bathhouse around except for the Watergarden in San Jose. Not cheap, but you definetly get what you pay for. Expect to pay at least $30 for a basic room, $17 for a locker. Many large and speciality rooms that are equipped with slings can be had for a higher price. Best nights are Fri and Sat and Thurs night Blackout night

  • Great Location
    This hotel isn't like the other boutique hotels or chains listed here so far. This hotel is fairly basic but has what you need, including free internet. The best part is the location, it's right off of Folsom street in the heart of SOMA. If you're going for the fairs or just a weekend to hang out in San Fran, this hotel is center to everything. They do have offsite parking, but i've found myself many times just parking my car in the remote lot and walking where I need to go or using BART. I've often gotten rooms for less than $100 and it makes it worth it! No air conditioning in rooms.

  • Love this hotel!
    I was this hotel listed and nobody's reviewed it!! This hotel is in downtown next to the Powell street cable car stop. I like this hotel because it's in a well preserved building from the turn of the century with all of it's old world charm in tact. The hotel is well kept and modern but hasn't been overdone like chain hotels. It's in the heart of downtown so plenty to do, although not that close to the gay bars :(

  • Good Location
    As the last reviewer said, the best thing about this hotel is the location. I've never eaten there (usually avoid hotel food) but it's right at Market and 8th, there's a BART station on the corners and it's within walking distance of the SOMA bars. If you're driving into town parking can be expensive ($30 a dar). Not a lot to eat around the area late at night, so plan accordingly!

  • Better!
    Hawk's is smaller than Entourage but set up better for playing. There's rooms, a small steam room and a back dungeon area with different equipment. It's busy on the weekends with a dark room that gets pretty seedy, but sometimes so is the clientele.
