If you're looking for big, bustling and contemporary, this isn't your place. If quiet, charming and heavenly is more your style then you're in for a treat. I love everything about this little gem..the location, high on a beautiful neighborhood street in Pacific Heights, the charming rooms, the wonderful breakfast and of course outstanding service. A classic San Francisco experience!

We stayed four nights with our 12 year old son in a City View suite. Room was large, nicely decorated, huge bathroom and incredible views of the city. Loved the location of the hotel. Staff were friendly and professional. We had room service dinner one evening and the food was great. Will always stay here when in San Francisco.

The staff were great, the room was impeccable, the view was out of this world and the food was excellent. First class in every way! We stayed for 3 nights and it was a great base for exploring SF. The Presidio is on the doorstep and it's a lovely walk to the Golden Gate. There are quite a few buses... More

Everything you see on their website is exactly as it is....superb staff, good location, quality room and all the amenities. Excellent and very comprehensive buffet breakfast equal to any top hotel in the States or abroad. And from 5:00 to 6:30 each evening, they serve excellent wines and a selection of good cheeses and fruit. It was recommended by friends... More

A lovely, intimate hotel in Pacific Heights. The rooms are spacious and spotless and are very nicely appointed--but the best feature is the staff. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating and they must all take a "nice" pill before their shift. Loved the wine tasting in the late afternoon! We will be back.

We arrived in San Fran on my wife's birthday after several days in LA and a stop in Big Sur -- a birthday cake, champagne, and a bottle of sparkling water (for our boys) were awaiting, which was perfect as were traveling for a fair bit of my wife's birthday. It awaited us because prior to our trip, I received... More

Perfectly appointed, spotless, quiet and timeless. Staff was attentive and warm without crossing over to disingenuous or forced. Pacific Heights, for me, is perfectly situated but could possibly be a little too quiet for some.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your lovely review! We like to think of ourselves as a quiet urban retreat. And I completely agree with you: our location in a wonderful upscale residential neighborhood is absolutely perfect for some, and a little too quiet for others. If you and your friends are interested in partying like it's 1999, I have a... More
