Great location and staff

We stayed here for a one night stay during our road trip through CA, OR & WA. The hotel was centrally located with kits to do around. On the suggestion of our check in Agent we went to dinner at a place nearby that was pretty good. The hotel looks and feel pretty old and worn out. They do a good job of trying to keep it young with furnishings here and there, but you can tell in the hallways and floors how old it is. Also the noise level is very present, thankfully it seemed to come down when it was time for bed. We had a good stay but would most likely look elsewhere for a better value.

Too Expensive for the Stay

The hotel was located in a great location but the room was pretty small for the price paid even off of cheap tickets.

Price is Right

This hotel was very comfortable and in a nice location near to Union Square. The room was spacious and exactly as it is pictured on website. The staff was very pleasant. We selected this hotel due to the price, it was less expensive then the others at the time and it worked out to be great for us. There was a little convenient store and a laundry may just a few doors down which was great! We are very pleased with our stay.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Walk in short steps to save your legs both up and down the hills, we bought the 48hr hop on/ hop off ticket which was well worth it.

Over all, great Hotel

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. They even gave us their only wine opener!! The room looked just like the picture including the cool bay window. Close to Union Square and other cool attractions. The only somewhat negative thing I can think of would be that the hotel is in the Tenderloin area which is known for the crazies. Its far enough removed from the "bad area" so it was fine, we felt safe walking etc. I would stay there again for sure.

nice yet a bit pricey

The hotel is located at nice place - walkable distance from union square, china town and piers. The room was also clean and comfortable. But the price for this much of niceness was a little higher than I expected. Tight room size and over $40 valet fee gives less rating it deserves.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Use the public parking on Lavenworth. Their all day parking is cheaper than the hotel valet.

Just ok ...

The hotel was only good for the following things, sleep, shower, change of clothes. The staff was awesome. They helped in every possible way. However, the bad. Being an older building, you could hear everything in the rooms around you. The TV was horrible. The first 2 days, we had maybe 10 channels. The last night we were there, we had none. The staff apologized, but there was nothing that could be done till Monday, (this was Saturday night). Being that we had a 6am flight the following morning, we wanted to stay in and rest up, instead of going out on the town. The previous couple of nights it didn't matter, as we were out late, and came in to shower and sleep. Overall, this hotel met our needs. It was clean, the staff was awesome, and we slept very well once the noise calmed down.

A solid value ...

I like this neighborhood boutique hotel. It is comfy. Bed and room were spacious and quiet. Walking distance from pretty cool restaurants and bar/lounges, yet located far enough north as to avoid the ever growing homeless population of the Tenderloin area.
