Highly recommend!

The hotel has absolutely great location. It's close to both the financial district if you are traveling for business and it's also close to China Town which has great food if you are traveling with your family!

Great location in SF

If you need to stay in the financial district of San Francisco then this hotel is for you. Very clean and quiet. Great location. You are just a couple of blocks away from the heart of the business district but when you need food or transportation it is all right there. Great neighborhood. I would not hesitate to stay again.

Wonderful Time!

Impressed with the cleanliness and condition of rooms especially bathroom. That matters most. Liked the idea of a "green hotel". Within 2-3 block walking distance to Market Street where you can get BART, cable car lines for those who do not like to walk. Cable car different buses can take you to Golden Gate Park, Alamo Square (painted ladies), Haight Ashbury, Ocean etc. We ventured on foot from hotel to Chinatown, Little Italy, North Beach (direction North) and Embarcadero (directly East). By going up Kearny Street you can avoid the big hills. Coming back down is a breeze!

Exactly what I hoped it would be

This hotel worked perfectly for me. It was close to Chinatown and centrally located. The staff treated me very respectfully, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. I prefer to not think about my hotel because that usually involves a complaint and the OG fit the bill. The rooms were well decorated, and though not tremendously spacious, had a enough room to maneuver without feeling cramped. The elevators moved efficiently and came quickly. The eco-friendly rooms almost caused me to choose a different hotel for worry of toilets that did not flush or low pressure showers. Neither of these concerns were warranted as the green-ness did not compromise the ammenties of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Definately check out the transit system (MUNI). The staff can tell you where to buy day passes that will save a lot of money over cab fare and the buses/cable cars/street cars go all over the city. Get your passes early as they include cable cars.

Absolutely Fantastic!

First of all the staff, especially [...] (sorry if I didn't spell it right) but he was so great to point out the areas of the city we should avoid. All of the staff were friendly, professional etc. The hotel itself was beautiful, relaxing and soooo clean. The roof top garden could use more plants to look more like a garden but it was still a very nice view. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel.

hotel not happy we booked thru Orbitz

After looking at our room after checking in, we went back downstairs to see about changing rooms due to the tiny room size, view of neighboring buildings' walls out of the window, and noticing that the room being cleaned next to ours actually had chairs, a hall, etc. The female desk clerk said that they were full, and since we booked through orbitz instead of through the hotel, she wouldn't be able to try to move us anyway. When we asked about the empty room next to ours, she said all the rooms were "blocked out", so she could do nothing to help. She said if we were "really unhappy" that she could maybe move us to another room the next night, but it wouldn't have a better view, wouldn't be much bigger, and would be $20 more a night. We passed on that offer. When we went to use our wine glasses, we noticed one was cracked. When I called the front desk, I got a recorded message that the front desk was unavailable and to leave a message. I went down to the desk, and was told to take the glass to the restaurant and they could give me another one(no "sorry about that", etc.) There is essentially no lobby in the hotel and it is kind of stark and lacks any kind of ambience when you enter.On the positive side...later, we dealt with [...], [...], and one other very helpful, polite desk person, and they were all great about giving us directions, restaurant recommendations, etc. There is a rooftop where you can bring a bottle of wine, or order drinks from the restaurant below, and that was very pleasant. The location was convenient.
