    Good

    We bring a 3 years old child for travelling. It is good to have a tea maker to cook hot water for making milk.

    Guest rating

    The room had very nice beds and looked very smart. The bar associated with the hotel is very good.

    The location is just on the edge of the "tenderloin" district which is not the ideal place to stay when travelling, you really need to keep your wits about you. It is however only a 5 minute walk from union square.

    Very good

    - Location for Shopping: right at Union Square - good Value for money - free coffee

    - Parking expensive

    Good

    Was in the area for Pride last weekend & the location was perfect. Public transport was easily accessable. Parking onsite was a big plus. Nice decor & helpful staff. Liked that a room key was necessary to get on the elevator.

    Although the location for the purpose of our trip was perfect, the area was teaming with homeless & addicts. We were never harassed yet we felt uneasy. Lots of street noise at all hours of the night. The water pressure left a lot to be desired.

    Exceptional

    Excellent location, on the edge of union square and tenderloin and although it was about 2-3 blocks from the Powell Metro station it was actually only about 150 yards from the metro entrance to the hotel door. Easy to get anywhere. The business center is fantastic and a godsend for conference go'ers needing quick fixes on their presentations or other stuff. Great table to work on with 2-3 or about 6 max. The discount through Booked.net made this a real excellent value.

    Rather minor in comparison to the budget discount I got but the shower head is too low in my room -- maybe not all. Led to flooding of the bathroom! Lighting in room a bit awkward but not any more so than most hotels!

    Not economic for a simple hotel that is located just where ugly side of downtown begins.

    We arrived at the hotel at 1 am, ready to check in we were told our room wasn't available anymore for that night. They paid for us to stay in another hotel for the first night, we were exhausted after 26 hours traveling. Another bad thing is the people living in the street of the hotel. Good position if you need to stay close to the city center, but very dangerous area of San Francisco, especially during night.

    Not one thing.

    The parking valet attendant is a maniac. My wife and I witnessed him driving about 100 feet at 40 miles an hour in reverse into the parking garage! The location is scary, the room was scary, the bathtub had pealing paint on the floor - we arrived and then just left for another hotel. I don't even care if I don't get a refund on the first night's stay, I'm just happy we got away with our belongings intact. You need a room key to use the elevator, for crying out loud. I read an article in the New York Times about staying off the beaten path in San Francisco. The guy that wrote that article should be fired for putting people in harm's way.

    Good

    People at the front desk were very nice. Rooms were clean.

    The shower head didn't stay up and just offered coffee in the morning no rolls or donuts. Couldn't get but five channels on the TV.

    Fabulous

    Good location, free wifi, early check-in

    The street where the hotel is situated is a crack alley: full of junkeys, homeless people and prostitues...

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The hotel didn't look like much from the outside, but was very nice once you walked in the door. Staff was very friendly, room was very clean. The bed was very comfortable, and with an interior room it was pretty quiet considering its location.

    The room was very small, but its an older hotel, and a cheaper rate so that was expected. The location is right on edge of the tenderloin, and pretty scary at night. I walked a couple of doors down to get some late night snacks and there were drug deals, prostitutes and generally, some pretty sketchy people everywhere. Nothing new if you've been in any big city, but I don't reccomend walking around at night.
