One night stay

I stayed on a Friday night for an interview Saturday morning. The front desk was extremely friendly, the room was clean, totally quiet, comfortable beds, very convenient location. The room service was expensive for what you get.

Small rooms, great location, so so staff

I have stayed at better places in San Francisco with more attentive service. The wake up call wasn't done. When I asked them to hold my bags at check out, they gave me a claim check but then didn't place my bags in the holding room with other guests' bags. Instead I found it in the lobby behind a chair; the bellman hadn't bothered to secure it. Since it's a very nice, hard to replace leather bag....this seemed pretty sloppy. The daily wine hour and free architecture tour are nice touches though. Overall I think it's ok but I would choose someplace else the next time.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take BART to and from the airport to the hotel. It's a two block walk from Montgomery Station. The hotel staff is telling folks to take a cab ($45) or Super Shuttle which makes multiple stops and is less comfortable than BART.

Sleek, clean and elegant

Great location away from the dregs of Market Street, but near excellent restaurants, great shopping, and the Modern Art Museum. Beautiful renovation of the hotel's interior in executed in tasteful moderne, but not cheap, style. When I needed a few pages faxed to my business at home, the staff eagerly assisted me and quickly did the task. Restaurant (Midi) is new and elegant; its small menu is pricey, but not out of line for the area. I also liked the 3rd-floor garden that leads to the Crocker Galleria.
