Decent hotel in a changing neighborhood

Large room, decent amenities. The fitness center needs some upgrading, and the wireless Internet was slow. The neighborhood is a little sketchy, and a bit far (if you're walking) from the happening part of SOMA. Overall, though, a positive experience.

Ok but pricey for neighborhood

It was fine but the neighborhhod is seedy. Lots of homeless but that is common for SFO. I think the price was too high for the neighborhood and I didn't see good restaurant choices nearby. Staff were nice and very accommodating. Walk to the BART.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

San Francisco is a small but vibrant city and this hotel puts you in the center to all it offers. The area can be sketchy but parking is secure and you must have a room key to access building entry and any floor with rooms from the elevator.

Great for an Active Weekend

This hotel is just that - a hotel. The beds are comfy enough, the rooms were clean, and the bathroom functional if spartan. The wifi worked fine, but the rooms are poorly configured for working (one table, not near an outlet), but you should be out having fun, not on the computer. The great thing about this place is the location: it's central to everything (except Golden Gate, but that's an easy BART ride).

Terrible noise generated by some guests

During my second night, several young guests were making terrible noise: banging doors and walls, screaming, running around in the hallway. Called management twice, after which the responsible guests returned to their room and continued to make noise till midnight. I have not had this kind of terrible experience, having travelled many times during the past ten years. Not blaming the hotel this, but I suggest that appropriate precautions be taken when a group of young people rent room(s) together.

Not bad but not real good either.

Service left something to be desired* In room service way over priced with a 19% Gurity plus an addition $2.00 delivery charge > Had a smoking room, this was one of the few Hotels in SF that still have this service however requested several time for more ash trays, never received, request a sm frig, 10 days never showed up*

Good Stay

Hotel had undergone some recent renovation. Room was nice recently renovated. The lady checking me was not the friendliest but the did let me check in 3 hours early no problem. The housekeeping staff was very friendly always a "Hi how are you today" if you seen them in the hallways. You may see some homeless people but they do not bother you. I did not feel unsafe anytime day or night. From what I have seen no more homeless than anyother part of the city. Muni and Bart are almost at the front door. Over all a very good stay.

I checked in and thought I would get one king bed and was given room with two bed. It's not a big deal and was given good service and the staff didn't give me so much of a hard time.
