The San Remo is a unique and wonderful little time capsule. The rooms are clean and fun, and compact. It feels like your inside a ship.

The concierge service is just one of many outstanding features of this excellent hotel. The folks who run it now are not responsible for its superb site and sights (from the Top of the Mark); the place has been around since 1926. But it is being taken great care of.

The hotel is in a great location for visiting sites and catching a tour bus. The hotel was very clean, the staff was extremely helpful, and the room was nice.
