conference in san francisco

the staff members were very helpful and kind. if i needed directions, or a cab, or had any question about the hotel or the area at all, they did their utmost to assist me. the hotel is very pretty, and the restaurant there has mighty tasty food. I was very happy with my stay and with the price of the hotel - I still remember it fondly, and it's been a year since I was there.

No parking, but otherwise okay

A cute hotel, not far from the action. My only real complaint was that they charged $36 to valet my car 20 miles away. The room was small/tight. We had to turn sideways to walk past the beds, but you get what you pay for.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Caution: this hotel does not have parking, and street parking within walking distance is impossible. If you have a car, they will valet it 20 miles away for $36/day

Horrible-Overpriced

This hotel charges as if it was a five star hotel however, it more of a run down motel. I had a horrible staff, there was only was worker, who did everything, the front desk, maintenance and such. He was extremely rude and not catering. The bathroom leaked and flooded. Had to switch to a different room which was not any better. Do not stay here.

Anniversary

There was a super promo we couldn't pass up to stay here, especially because it looked so lovely in the pictures, and the truth is, it really is, the room we got was just much much smaller than we expected. We felt like we were staying in a cramped dorm room, which isn't the most romantic of places, but it could have been much worse. We noticed some of the other rooms were very bright and roomy, ours was looking into a dingy alleyway, so I suppose your stay will depend on which room you select, because each one is unique. I loved the charming old elevator, but my boyfriend was kind of creeped out by it. It's a nice place if all you want to do is have a central location to sleep in, but other than that it isn't the kind of hotel I'd enjoy just lounging around in, even if it's a historical building! What I'm definitely sure of is that I'm glad we didn't pay full price for our stay, it's waaaay too much! I would recommend it to friends who are interested in historical architecture, but that's about it.

Make the best of the location! Take a walk to China Town, which took us dilly dallers around half an hour.
