  • Great location for shopping, just a block from Union square and the hotel is clean, safe, and comfortable. Staff could not have been more helpful and nice, thus, the rooms are quiet.

    The reception, concierge and housekeeping were excellent and couldn't do enough for us, the windows did not shut properly.

  • The location is excellent, definitely the rooms facing hte street are the best and the hotel self has a lot of nice character and everything is efficient. The front lobby does look good, the staff is superb and sure, in San Francisco you can open the window and things cool down. Lots of great restaurants close by, too.

  • The location was great and the hotel was pretty nice for the price I've paid for. On the first impression the reception area/lobby was well presented and service was top notch and the concierge was more than helpful. The room was very quiet.

    At least on the city street you get the wind to blow away the awful smell and the bathroom is a bit old looking and rather small.
