    The location was great, in the middle of the city, close to all the shops. The room was comfortable and elegant. I would definitely stay here again.

    No complaints at all.

  • Older travelers

    We loved the location and staff were really friendly and helpful particularly when we had to extend the stay suddenly.

    The standard of cleaning was sometimes poor, e.g. unwashed cups

    Hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. The location is very strategic, just steps aways from union square. Love it !

  • Family with children
    10.0

    I would highly recommend this hotel, it is centrally located - only a block from union square which had great shopping and the cable car at the end of the steeet. I also liked the fact that it had a restaurant and cafe within the hotel, but if that didn't appeal you have an italian cafe next door which provides a large breakfast menu catering for all needs at great prices. The hotel was value for money. Staff very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

    Being right on Powell Street, with the cable car travelling up and down the street, made it quite noisy at times, even though we were on the 7th floor, but then this just made the experience more appealable and gave us the true San Francisso feel.

    There was nothing I did not like. All around a great expereince!

    Location

    When we arrved after being on a plane trip all day the attendant at your front desk in which there were two there neither came to our assistance right away. Had difficulty understanding the attendant as well. We booked well in advance for our room and all we had for choices was a window with tons of noise and by the elevator.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The servvice was great and the location perfect for getting around the city.

    Room was very small and the bathroom was difficutl to manouver as it was tiny.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Excellent location, handy coffee bar in lobby and comfortable rooms.

    Some of the rooms were very small and dark. I stayed in two different rooms, first with a group so we were able to compare rooms, and mine was small and dark with a tiny shower recess that took minutes for the hot water to run, then the second time my room was much larger and brighter and very comfortable. I had requested a different room for my second stay and the hotel staff were extremely helpful in accommodating my request

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Location was fantastic - close to amenities and the heart of the San Francisco action at Union Square.

    Front desk staff were inefficient and every question seemed a challenge for them to answer. They could not find 1 of my bookings (I booked 2 rooms) and subsequently I was charged 1 night's stay for not canceling the other booking when the front desk staff could not find it. I now have to try to get the 1 night's stay refunded.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    From the moment we arrived we were treated as if we were the only guests there. All of our special requests were met immediately (roll away and extra towels) and the concierge provided us with a detailed list of the best restaurants and ways to navigate the city. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    It was very noisy at night and hard to sleep. We had just spent 4 days in Sonoma so the city was a big change. But we cranked up the fan in the room and it helped to drowned out the sirens/trolley's/etc.

  • Older travelers
    8.0

    Great location, enjoyed Kuletto's restaurant downstairs, very convenient and the staff were amazing.

    Room a bit small

  • Group of friends

    Not a family oriented hotel Was given a room by the dumpster. Elevator so so small stroller barely fit in, Hallway smelled bad. Room with no blankets.
