I read a lot of negative things about the hotel before travelling and must say I found it very good. The location for transport is very good with tram and buses running regularly to Fisherman's Wharf at $2. Good sized room with comfortable bed. I was on the second floor facing Market Street and there were a number of sirens... More

Absolutely coming back. Staff is top notch. What really made my trip was the manager, Kazi Ahmed. He went out of his way to make my evening go smoothly and is the reason I stayed here the rest of the weekend! 5 stars no doubt

I was looking for a quaint hotel with some charm, but this felt like a haunted hotel. The lighting is dim and the furniture is uncared for. My room was on the 2nd floor and when I walked down the long hallway, the temperature started to drop and I felt like I entered a horror movie. Upon entering my room... More

I booked my reservation through Hotels.com it being rated as "average" I thought it would suffice. The first impression upon arriving if you don't know the city, is that it is located conveniently located to many of the city's attractions. Walking into the lobby, it is very beautiful old wood details and chandeliers made a nice impression. However, the rooms... More

This is a beautiful old historic building with an impressive lobby in a sketchy neighborhood (anything west of 8th is still in transition). There were many middle aged European tourists staying at the hotel and I felt horrible that this was their impression of San Francisco. The homeless and crack heads surround this area and it is dangerous for walking... More

Impressive foyer with marble and chandeliers. Extremely convenient central location, next to market street, with metro, buses, trams and lots of good dining. We got a very good price through our airplane booking with BA, but there were a lot of small things that irritated, like blown bulbs, cracked tiles, absolutely NO water pressure - generally everything seemed somewhat worn...

Hotel offers no room service or any other services! Many might like the historical aspect of hotel , but in all honesty it... More
