Only question was unloading my car onto the busy street, however David the Concierge was superb and very helpful.
I was fortunate enough to have an upgrade to the Royal suite at no additional charge.

No room service which is difficult when you are traveling alone. No air conditioning - if I had to leave the window open it would have been very loud with street noise. My room was very dark.
I liked the location. Staff was pleasant. Lobby was nice.

Rooms were a little small than we usually like. Bathroom could use a little updating
Location was 2 minute walk to Union Square, Staff was very nice and helpful
May 16, 2015
mini bar refrigerator would be nice supplement. I didn't need an air conditioner in April but on other seasons that might be a plus.
I loved the hotel, the friendly and helpful staff and especially the front desk agent Velichka who was always very helpful and friendly. I liked the spacious room and the benefits of being at the heart of downtown San Francisco. All in all it was a great experience and I recommend the hotel.

Had to check out. Wanted to stay longer

No AC and heater never turned off so it got really hot in room, no breakfast, parking way too expensive, could hear noise from other rooms
Cool old building. Comfy bed. Great location!

Feather pillows....but, that's my fault. They would have changed them.

They did not have our correct room when we checked in and said it was no longer available, even though I showed them our confirmation number! They put us in a terribly small, cramped room facing Union Square. We were there two night, could barely walk around the room because it was so tight. We did not sleep because of all the noise, very thin walls with NO insulation and screaming children in the room next door to us. Terrible experience.

The reception and hotel staff were courteous, welcoming and also fun.

I loved the music playing in the lobby on Wed and Fri. It creates a special atmosphere.

Nice location, down town, close to shopping mall

Hotel is very old and rooms havent been renovated since 1980s. I'have never stayed such an old room like this. I also hate that old fashioned bathroom. Fulsh tank and shower faucet weren't working properly.
Location was great. Bad was very big and comfortable.

The price of $300+ was outrageous for a little room on the 6th floor.
May 5, 2015
The hotel looks stunning in the photos but in reality looks a little less spectacular and a little tired and dated.
Location is perfect if you want to be in the middle of all the action

Corner of Union Square.
April 28, 2015
Definitely the location!
April 25, 2015
No hot water for showers in the morning. No access sheet for Wi Fi on registering. This should be automatic . No amenities, no breakfast area, rooms small & pokey. Expensive given what it lacks.
Location & Bob the concierge are the stand out positive attributes of this hotel.

The Housekeeper on our floor couldn't keep our wash cloths straight. She'd replace the hand towels or bath towels but would miss the wash clothes. The third day I went to her cart and grabbed two for myself! Doesn't she have a checklist? The Contenental Breakfast could be improved.
April 16, 2015
Would be nice if the water was complimentary especially after arriving after a long flight.
Loved the location, beds, wifi and free sherry in the lobby.
April 14, 2015
The charm of the hotel. It is older but the renovations were nice upgrades. Just did not want to stay at a branded hotel like the boutique hotels.
April 14, 2015
Painters started 8am painting out our window

April 13, 2015
