well-located, good place to stay

A very friendly, convent oasis in San Francisco. Room was comfortable though small. Staff very friendly--make you feel at home. Lots of nice little touches--comfy bath robes, maps with jogging trails, very good food for room service. Recommended.

Incredible Value

Coould not be happier! The hotel is in a great location, close to the heart of SF city life and a block and a half from the BART station. Room The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Rooms are on the smallish side but well appointed anc clean. I believe there is no restaurant on the premises, but plenty of them all around. Not sure whether there is a well appointed gym or other fancy ammenities, but that does no deter from the overall experience. Internet access is free as is coffee in the morning and wine for happy hour. What else can you ask for?

Excellent business location

The hotel was friendly, service was excellent. I didn't use the business center. The "fitness center" was terrible: small, dark, and poorly equipped. The description on [...]indicated it had a restaurant -- but it was closed. Most staff were very young and advice on local restaurants, parking, etc. was not well-informed. The tea and coffee service in the morning and the wine in the evening was most welcome.

Comfortable and stylish boutique hotel.

Great location right in downtown. Service was great and was able to check in early. Very helpful staff. Love the style of the hotel with old marble staircases and such. Nice outdoor patio on the third floor roof.
