    Extremely clean towels, simple breakfast provided

    Partition of the walls must be quite thin. I can hear the conversations of the guests along the corridors.

    Location and the rooms were nice.

    I didn't know the city was having a parade and I paid extra, but not the hotel falt

    It was the perfect location for shopping and exploring Union Square. Great restaurants you can walk too - love the location!!!

    Central to shopping not Fishermans Wharf but the Cable car goes right past the door.

    It was comfortable, so close to all the nearby city experiences, and the staff were always willing to help.

    The sink for the bathroom was in the main bedroom, that was a bit weird, but apart from that, happy.

    The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and fresh looking. The location was great for our purpose of seeing San Francisco. We appreciated the the nice big towels and crisp linens. We would definately recommend this hotel.

    We would have liked to have a more selection for the included breakfast - fruit and more choices of cereal. It would have been nice to have a drink machine available. In the summer a lack of a/c could be a problem althought the fan really helped on the 2 warm days (83) that occured while we were there.

    Excellent location, clean rooms & surely value for money.

    I would suggest a few more items for breakfast, like fruit & boiled eggs.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The hotel felt very, very clean and modern. The location was perfect for using public transportation and I felt pretty safe in the area. The staff was always ready to answer any questions and made us feel welcome. I felt like I got my money's worth of value.

    The pillows were hard and the bed and shower were a little too small to be comfortable for more than 1 or 2 nights.
