Great base to explore San Francisco

This hotel makes a great base for exploring San Francisco...the Powell St cable car literally runs outside the front door and union sq is 1 block away. There's a great variety of restaurants/bars/ shops literally on your doorstep. The room was small, but we expected that and it wasn't an issue, it's not as if we were in it much other than for sleeping/showering. Air com would have been useful as it was hot when we stayed, although there was a ceiling fan at least. The room was dated but clean, which is most important. All of the staff except the one that checked us in were friendly & informative. The guy that checked us in was a little ill mannered to say the least. At first he said that we did not have a reservation, when I showed him my booking confirmation he then said that someone hadn't out it into his system & appeared very 'put out', no apology, no eye contact and no smile or help with bags etc. All the other staff were exemplary. Free breakfast was average, but free, you can't complain at that.

Alcatraz...unmissable, as is the pier area and obviously the Golden Gate Bridge! A ride on a cable car is a must also, such fun!

In the heart of San Francisco

The location was perfect. Hop off the BART after your flight and walk two blocks you're in your room. Plus it's right on the cable car line and near a majority of transit hubs. The value was great. Some more fruit options at breakfast would have been nice. But the staff is super friendly.

Excellent location

Shopping, dining, cable car, Bart train, subway are within minutes walk from the hotel. Our Queen size bed room is small but okay as we just need a safe and convenient place to stay.

Pleasantly surprised

This was a moderately priced hotel (for S F), and the room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was larger than at the high priced hotel we stayed at! We were only there one night, and left in the wee hours, so could not avail ourselves of the complementary breakfast, which also was NOT available at the other hotel. The only caveats are the VERY slow elevator, and the lack of a bellboy to help with the luggage. I had to struggle with the trolley myself, in and out of the slow elevator.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

There are so many wonderful restaurants in SF, that you should walk away from the pricey Union Square area where the hotel is (conveniently) located, to some other neighborhood.

Nice and safe place

I stayed one night in this hotel in Standard Queen size room. This place is very safe and close to cable cars and street cars. Room is little bit smaller than I expect, but it is sufficient for two persons. If you are willing to take Big bus tours or Sightseeing tours, this place is much better. I would recommend this hotel for you.

Nike marathon weekend

This was a great location for the Nike Women's Marathon. The hotel was just steps away from the start line. The rooms were clean and modern. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Just needed a place to sleep

The elevator is extremely slow. The room was extremely small. The room seemed to heat up without anyone in it though it was a cold day. The window view was of the next building over only about 2 feet away. But it served its purpose with a bed and a small bathroom as I ran the half marathon there.
