A truly pleasant experience!

Would recommend Sat, Nov 28, 2015
I required a hotel at which to stay while visiting family in the San Francisco area. This hotel located in walking distance of many of the sites of the City. It was a short walk to Chinatown. The Concierge staff is knowledgeable and help. The desk staff were courteous, efficient, and professional. I had a truly pleasant and relaxing experience! I recommend this hotel unreservedly!

Two nights

Would not recommend Tue, Mar 10, 2015
Stayed for two nights. I thought this hotel would be better than my last choice next to the China town, however, only the location worth paying the money for other things were not as I aspected.

So fancy, and handy!

Would recommend Mon, Dec 1, 2014
Got a deal on this and took it, upon recommendation from a friend who had stayed here. We were in SF for just a few days, and found our stay very comfortable and its location made our adventures in town very accessible. Loved the lobby bar and cozy (not large, but very well-appointed) room!

Entertainment hint

Visit during the Pride festival in late June. You'll enjoy the parade!
