Great city view in SF

Very friendly and attentive Staff. Comfortable and spacious room, furnished with taste and style. Very comfortable bed--you get a great night of sleep, especialy if you travel from far away and need to recharge.

great location

The dinning options in/around the hotel were limited. The licensed cabs are loathe to stop at the hotel. A couple of the cab drivers explained how the hotel staff direct the longer fares to their friends who drive unlicensed 'cabs' and only give the short rides to the metered cabs. However there is plenty to see and do within a couple of miles around the hotel so walking is a great option.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Do not try to get a cab near the hotel. Since the hotel staff will only give the shortest fares to the legitimate cabs and save the longer fares for the unlicensed cars, as a result, the licensed cabs will not stop at the hotel. Cab drivers will pick a guest up but just not right in front of the hotel and certainly not if one of the hotel staff is trying to hail it for you.

Sears fine food, just down Powell street, less than a block. Be sure to arrive early or go on a weekday morning because the line gets long quickly.

Loved It

clean rooms, good location, super comfy bed. I only wish there was a refridgerator (since there's a space for it) and they had a complimentary breakfast buffet for guests in the morning.

Nice getaway!

Very nice hotel, friendly staff. Was a little noisy, walls seem a bit thin. Great location in the middle of SF, by Union Square. A good walk up-hill to China Town.
