Nice

I had a prepaid vacation pkg & when I arrived the hotel didn't have me registered & said they didn't have an account with Orbitz. Also they said I had to pay for the hotel....so it took 2 days to straighten out. I had to call Orbitz & they talked w/ hotel & everything was fine after. The hotel did put a $300 hold on my debit card which put a little damper on spending due to lack of back up funds. The last day it was credited so I was glad to see that...because I wasn't sure exactly what the hotel was really doing. Other than that the stay was nice, my only other complaint would be that 2+ blocks south is addict/homeless central some would wonder up by hotel but were harmless. Do not venture south walking though...it's pretty disturbing to see the despair. The hotel has a nice Italian bistro & the continental breakfast isn't too bad. On Sutter one block down there seems to be some nice breakfast places & Saint Raphaels thrift shop was nice too, all $ goes to homeless. Also Glide Memorial Church is awesome! Best Gospel choir ever they also help all the one's on the street too. You may want to take a taxi there because it's on the edge of Tenderloin also.

Great!

The Hotel was very interesting! But it was clean and it was an adventure. My husband and I had tons of fun while we were there. The rooms were small but the location was next to all the major transit systems so it was easy to get around. It was loud cause it is an old building and the windows are old but it was fun.

Just get a MUNI pass at the airport when you arrive and you can ride all the trains, busses, and trollies you want.

Good Value Hotel

The hotel was small and noisy outside, but great value @ $68 for a Saturday night. The staff was very helpful - they allowed us to leave our bags there after we checked out so we could roam the city. They even provided shuttle service to the airport for $16/person. The location is great as it's only a couple blocks away from Union Square.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

It's a medium walk - a few blocks away, but check out the areas around the bar Swig. The bar itself is pretty cool - good crowd and music, but there were other lounges around the area I wish I would've checked out.
