Score from 1017 reviews Very good
The bed was great and a choice of pillows. Good house keeping service The restaurant attached had wonderful food. The most amazing big soaking bath tub ever.
The elevator is very small No control for the heat in the rooms, runs on a radiator system. Make sure you get a room not facing the street.
Cleanliness, staff attitude. Quite a good price for the central location.
The bathroom is very small and has close to no shelves or hooks, almost nowhere to put your things or clothes. Mixed location - very close to the very city centre, but at the same time quite close to the center of Tenderloin district, whose section should rather be avoided
Rattling pipes when some one flushed a toilet!
The hotel is really confortable and clean and all the staff (a part from one person at the reception) is very very kind, they helped me in everything I needed!
The location, while it is very convenient because you can reach everything easily, on the other hand, however, is on the edge of a very degraded area. But actually it was not a real problem, even if I was a woman travelling alone, it was more a feeling of be unsafe.
The decor and theme was fantastic. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. The facilities were all in tip-top shape. You also can't beat the location.
The walls were incredibly thin. I could hear neighbors' conversations. There was also perpetual running water throughout the night either outside of the building or within the walls. The bed and pillows are not comfortable-- the bed was very hard and the pillows had no structure.
The room was comfortable and the staff was acomodating. The location was good for us to walk to shopping and restaurants. All in all we had a great stay!!
Location and free wi-fi worked good for us. Comfortable room.
Our room had almost zero daylight. Bathtub was not cleaned well. The location can be eerie at night and sometimes daytime too. Use the Geary or O'Farrell way for a safer day. While having a rest at the bar around 9pm, even before finishing up our drinks we were told that the bar was getting closed.
Location: ease of access to main attractions.
Bathroom door in my hotel room did not close easily and would jam unless forced closed. Also valet parking was a a bit pricey per night.
1. Location convenient, right of Union square with all the shopping, eateries everywhere, close to Powell station and BART to airport and cablecars (though area not quiet, and are of a lot of homeless/beggars, etc.). 2.Very clean - bathroom outdated, do not expect glamour as in the photos. But everything was extremely clean in bedroom and bathroom. Good value for money. 3. Daytime staff was very helpful. 4. Cute hummingbird garden; details of Mark Twain theme.
1. Very noisy all night (even on 8th floor!), garbage trucks noise all night long, windows provide no sound isolation. Do not stay here if you are not a sound sleeper (really!). Also no curtains, the wooden blinds let light come in. 2. Do NOT come with kids/family - the hotel is on the back of Hilton, so many "accompanying ladies" and other stay at the hotel or stand at the door at night. You are also near a church that feeds people in need/homeless, not dangerous but do expect a lot of homeless, beggars, etc. 3. Paid bottled water. 4. Laptop doesn't fit laptop safe. 5. A lot older than photos show, not so glamorous, just ok.
The staff was very friendly and welcoming felt very comfortable and at home here in this beautiful and quaint hotel terrific location
Location: close to city center, public transport, shopping. Clean, comfortable, unique style.
Location: some neighbouring streets to avoid at night.
Kemal at the front desk is incredibly friendly and helpful.
room too small.
Very nice rooms, clean and fresh looking
No AC it was very hot even with windows open and fan working all the time
Clean and spacious rooms. Nice decor! Friendly staff. Location is perfect: near Union square, the buses, the cable cars, etc al in walking distance
Rooms were a bit warm and it was hard to let fresh air in, but this is a problem in many hotels!
Good location. Walking distance to Moscone and Union Square
Would be afraid to stay here in the summer without air conditioning just in case the weather heated up
Excellent staff. Perfect location. Clean comfortable & stylish rooms. Great price!
No vent in bathroom. But hey it's an old building! Elevator was broken for two days and we were on the 9th floor!
Location is great with one exception (see cons), the inside is clean and well decorated and the staff was great.
When you walk out the main door, turn left. A right turn takes you into a sketchy, unwelcoming area. Still totally worth staying here.
The heater made a loud noise through the night. The hotel is ruined down
I liked the trendy decor in an older hotel. It was easy to get to Union Square. Getting a cab was easy. The staff was ethe staff was excellent
We had a problem with the radiator but we called the front desk and he immediately took care of it
cool feel nice staff
cold room hallways freezing in fact and no hot water for our showers in the morning
I liked the location
The heater didn't work
The staff were amazingly friendly and there was free lemonade in the lobby! Great location.
The room (particularly the bathroom) looked a little shabby, but it was minor.
When turning on faucet, water pipe vibrates and generates big noise. Poor soundproof between rooms, hotel is noisy.
Location is convenient to Union Square Staff helpful and generous Continental breakfast items for sale in lobby Nicely appointed including robes
Parking is too expensive
