Eventful Family Holiday

The hotel provides complimentary breakfast of continental bakery, something which is not common for tourist hotels in America I would say. Hotel location is within walking distance to downtown Union Square and City Hall, which is very convenient for shopping and typical tourist leisure walking.

Sanity Break

Average hotel but in a good location for public transportation. Some staff were friendly and competent but others were bored and/or uninterested. Rooms and halls need updating but were very clean. Telephone switchboard was almost useless.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Big bus or hop on hop off bus passes. So helpful and cheaper than cabs. For those who don't want to walk miles.

Nice, clean hotel

Very well maintained, modern and clean. The location is central enough -- though a ways from attractions like Fisherman's wharf. The included breakfast was much better than most, though could have used some hot food. The one guy at the front desk was really grumpy and bordering on rude.

Last renovation was quite a while ago ...

Well, carpet & furniture was put in those rooms quite a while ago - a/c was noisy and the breakfast not really a gourmet style ...

Excellent hotel

Great hotel with unique characteristics and charm. Hotel does charge $30-$35 for parking fee that isn't listen on the website. Couldn't do complimentary breakfast because the beds were too comfy.

Nice Hotel, shady area

The hotel itself was nice, clean, the continental breakfast was nice and the people very friendly. The only drawback is that few blocks to the east of the hotel are a little bit dangerous so take the 38 bus or a cab at night. I had no issues walking during the day but be careful.

Average

OK for short stay. Bed linen seemed not that clean. Parking is expensive. I parked one block away in the theater which was $26 a night while the hotel charges $35 a night for parking. Not that good for walking towards main attractions.

Clean and comfortable

This hotel is clean with friendly staff. Our room was small and outdated but that added to its charm. The only major thing that I could really complain about was the radiator. It was quite warm in our room in January and we ended up sleeping with the window open. However for the price we were happy. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and so were the pillows.
