Older building which has been renovated; across the street from Convention Center and Marriott City Center. Grocery store on corner and multiple restaurants in walking distance. Neighborhood gets sketchy pretty quickly; passed a lady who was with police one block away after window broken out of car and contents stolen. Hotel has no on-sight parking, but can park across the... More

This is an old hotel, but it could be very charming. That being said, the problems clearly outweigh the charm it could have. if you have a vehicle the parking situation is ridiculous. You have to park in the Marriot parking garage across the street. When you want to get out of the garage, they give you a pass that... More

I stayed at the hotel because of it's close proximity to Bart going into Berkeley. It's a quant hotel located across the street from the Convention Center. The rooms are small but clean. The sink is located outside of the bathroom which is a little bit funky. The beds were ok -not uncomfortable. They serve a free continental breakfast. The... More

We stayed here during our visit to San Francisco. The location is a block from the 12th st Bart station and only 2 Bart stops to the Embacardero. You can walk to the Amtrak station or its about $8 in a cab. Its within walking distance of the Ferry at Jack London Square. Its also close to the free Oakland... More

Rooms are really big, personnel were really helpful and friendly. Excellent location, breakfast was kinda weird as we had it in the HALL but it was delicious! So it didn't matter... The building is old but stylish, grocery store is just next door. Oakland downtown is within walking distance and San Francisco is about 15 minutes drive all in all... More

Vintage, clean, friendly and close to BART for our San Francisco excursions. Had fears of winding up in a bad part of town in a weird run-down hotel but it is totally a place we would come to again! We stayed for two nights and the staff accomodated our every question and need. Our only cloud in an otherwise great... More

Here is a gem! The hotel has a great feel to it. The team has done a great job of blending old and new. I love the old style but with all the comforts like cleanliness, great beds, well maintained, friendly staff, free internet,free continental breakfast, coffee maker, hair dryer etc. Don't be afraid to stay in a hotel with...

Stayed for over a week. The stay was very comfortable. The Front desk staff is very courteous. Comfortable bed and quiet enough room. Breakfast is quite limited and good enough for a quick snack and does not include anything warm, except for toasted bread. The daily room cleaning isn't consistent and do not replenish used items and might require a... More

I guess some people call it character and vintage..I call that old and creepy. The shining style. I didn't even want to walk barefoot on thr carpet..it feels sticky! No shower pressure at all so get ready to spend 30 min trying to get shampoo out. You will also wait a while for water to turn warm. Stairs screech, floor... More
