Stayed here for our 21st Wedding Anniversary in September 2015. SF is so pricey but this place was perfect for us. The free daily breakfast is fantastic and full of options and I loved the old world charm of this place. We had a room on an upper floor facing the front so had a bit of a view. Wi... More

Our room was tiny also and the 'queen' bed was more like a full bed. Staff was good and room was cleaned nicely each day. Erika at front desk was excellent. Fresh cookies daily were a nice touch. Continental breakfast needed waffle maker but fruit was excellent. Very little sitting room anywhere. No pool or exercise room. Close to public... More

This experience brought me to tears. A few years ago, I'd had a great experience at this hotel. This experience, with new owners, was the opposite of that. My "suite" was a squalid dungeon of a room with barely enough space to walk around the queen-size bed. No dresser. No desk. Free WiFi, but nowhere (other than the bed) to... More

We are timeshare owners and exchanged for this property for 5 days. The staff was so friendly and professional the whole time. We knew our room was going to be small (the whole room was smaller than our bedroom at home), but managed expectations and it was comfortable, clean and quiet. We were on the 5th floor facing the front.... More

We stayed here 5 nights. The hotel is in a really great location. The room was kind of small with not much of a closet but it was just fine, in the style of boutique hotels I have stayed at in Europe. Breakfast was a cold buffet and it was very good with excellent coffee! In all, I found the... More

We enjoyed our five night stay here in January. Our room was the Opera Suite that has three rooms. A bedroom, small entry room that has a small refrigerator and utensils and a sink and a small sitting room with a fold out couch and TV. One bathroom off the bedroom and another off the sitting room.

We stayed there for our wedding in January 2016. The room was clean, i didn't have any issues with noise in the room at all. The staff was super friendly and it was in a good location. I could easily walk to City Hall in about 7 minutes - in my wedding dress, so I was moving slow. The continental... More

We stay here because we're Shell Vacation Club members. Stayed for one night to go to the San Francisco Symphony. This is an older historic hotel and getting to book the one bedroom deluxe was great...has been hard to book one of those. I think they're aren't many on each floor. The heating situation was kinda odd. We had a... More

We had a great experience here! The rooms were small but cozy and comfortable! The staff was very nice and accommodating starting with the bellman all the way to the maid service! Roberta at guest services was most pleasant and very helpful! We will definitely stay again!

Horrible Experience. The rooms were very cold. Bathroom was tiny. In addition, the front desk seemed like it was a chore when I asked them where certain places were and overall I felt miserable. I will never go there again.

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
