The advantage of staying here is the location close to Union Square, shopping and the theatre and cable car routes. The room was small, and very, very basic. Seemed clean enough, no cable tv. If you just need a place to stay and shower, this was
a good deal for SF. When I was there the restaurant was closed.
We went to SF to meet up with some friends and had our dog with us. The hotel was clean and staff was friendly. The only thing that we didn't like was that the parking garage was five blocks away so we parked elsewhere.
In town for concert. Valet only $24 - reasonable, but parking garage right up street (not sure on pricing). Check in a breeze, bag carried to room, small room w/queen bed, but fine for single. Iron & board in room, but no hairdryer - need to
get at front desk. "natural" a/c. No need to eat, but White Horse bar/restaurant attached. Overall a good place.
We live here in the east bay but wanted to stay in the city to get to two events on different days. The hotel was centrally located to where we needed to be. For travellers, it is downtown area so civic center (taxi), union square (walk),
financial district (walk), north beach (taxi) are close by . The staff were nice. The atmosphere and interior decor were charming victorian time period. The rooms were very clean, nice and simple decor. The only thing noted as didn't like but not very important as far as my needs were the rooms were small but that seems standard for many older san fran buildings and hotels. Also, you are unable to control the heat. it is manned by the building so it was chilly at night but luckily the bedding did a good job of keeping me warm.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Dining- Short walk (restaurant in hotel under renovation during my stay)
