This room was pricey $300. Old, dirty, smells like diapers! At first I thought my nose would adjust to it but the smell persisted the whole day. Gross! One of the worst I've stayed in. Was at their hotel Palomar before which was much better. Would never come back.

Stayed on club floor with family. The room had a king bed in separate bedroom and pul out sofa in sitting room for the kids. Lots of space, and fabulous location just steps from Union Square. Fresh cookies in the lobby were a hit with the kids. Breakfast is adequate-- week night cocktail reception a nice touch.

Stayed here during our last trip to California. Pricey but It was worth paying that little bit extra because of its location and not only that its a beautiful location to trams, food places and other amenities that offered great service. Rooms a little small but bathroom is big. TV and drinks. Drawback is probably the window view we got... More

We live only about 30 minutes from SF but wanted to go to the city for the evening, have dinner and not worry about driving. I picked this hotel because the price was right and we could get a package with parking. It is close to a lot of restaurants, shopping etc.. so is very convenient. It was a great... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were very happy with the choice after doing the research ahead of time. As with most... More

The best part of our visit was the friendly, helpful staff. Even when things got busy at checkout, they were as organized as possible and made sure to let us know that we were on their minds. Everyone was knowledgable about the city and could help us with our many questions. The hotel was lovely and the location excellent. Beds... More

Hotel pretty nice, the staff very friendly and helpful, a bit expensive but then again this is San Francisco. The hotel is basically an old boutique like hotel that was very nice. They provided the coffee in the morning and Wine in the evening. I had a nice room overlooking the front street and not very noisy except when a... More

We arrive around 1pm which is earlier than the regular check in time but the check in staffs, Casey and another young man, are friendly and very helpful. Before we come, we read the reviews and worry about the noise during the night. But actuary the streets are quiet at least around 10pm when we walk from the opera house... More

Hotel was very nice, staff were very friendly & it is just 2 blocks from Union Square. So great location for shopping, restaurants & night life but about 35mins walk up (very big) hill to get to the wharf.
