Feel good trip

The hotel is very close to shopping areas and transportation. A lot of panhandlers though and it can get noisy at night. But overall, the rooms are clean

Work trip

The hotel was nothing special. It was in the area I wanted to be in, but nothing stood out about the hotel. I did like how it was close to everything I needed to get to. The staff was friendly.

Good for a one night stay

I stayed here for a night during a business trip. The room is small but it seems as though that is pretty typical of a SF hotel and the parking was very expensive (again typical), but overall, my stay was fine, the room was comfortable, the shower water pressure was good which is all that matters to me.

Great value and location

We stayed in the premier/deluxe room with balcony. The room was excellent value and was large with a balcony overlooking the pool..... It was very handy for the valet and getting into and out of O Farrell street. The hotel itself was right smack in the centre of things in Union Square. We had two rooms, one was premier and one wasn't, they are practically in different buildings, so beware if doing something similar. The maid service and front desk was excellent..... This hotel is thoroughly recommended

San Fran Family Trip

Once I got my room my thought is that this is the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed. However, when I saw my friend's room at another hotel on the same street. I would say that the room I stayed is just fine. If you stay at the historic building, you will notice that there is a smell that I do not know how to describe. But I assumed that is a smell of an old building. Then when you enter the room, the cleanliness is good, everything is nicely placed. The room service did not refill any coffee pack and tea for our room after the first night but that was fine by me. After all our room is still nicely kept. The final thing I want to mention is that the elevator seems aged and will bump a little when you reach your floor. It scared me a little when I use it for the first time.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are a Thai food lover, do stop by at Bachaa Thai as I think they have authentic and the most delicious Thai food I've eaten since I came to the states and their prices are reasonable too. Just turn left when you came out of the hotel cross the traffic light and it is located at the opposite of the road beside shabu shabu and a pizza shop.
