Spent 3 nights at this delightful hotel. Great setting and location near Union square. Staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Very nice rooms, but a bit noisy on the back end over looking a court yard with vents blowing the whole time, so was not able to have windows open. Wine tasting offered in the evenings, but we were too... More

This is a great hotel to stay while in San Fran. We stayed for a couple of days and it was in the most perfect location, so close to all the action of the city and many restaurants located in walking distance. The rooms are very nice and classic decor, we were slightly worried when we read the reviews about... More

Our stay was pure perfection! I found myself smiling at just how lovely this hotel made me feel. Never have I felt so welcomed and at home at a hotel! My husband and I stayed for six days. This was our first trip to San Fran. Coming and going there was always someone at the front desk to greet us.... More

I just spent a week at this lovely hotel. The location is perfect, I wasn't sure if I should stay at Union square or the Fisherman's Wharf area and was so glad I ended up choosing this hotel. The staff were very helpful and the nightly wine reception was a great chance to meet other guests. Breakfast and nightly cookies... More

This is a quirky small hotel with very friendly staff in a great position near Union Square. The rooms are well appointed and the bed very comfortable. Only 5 floors. The lift is small but adequate. The staff are so keen to help. The Westin is directly opposite and the cable car just at your door,.

I don't have much to add to other positive reviews, yet we thought the people who manage this hotel have understood what hospitality and quality truly mean: the details and little things, which all work out very well in this prime-location small hotel. Highly recommendable indeed for a leisure stay in SF.

We picked this hotel for a family get together in San Francisco for three nights in July. It was perfect. The hotel is fairly small by big city standards but that is most of its charm. The lobby reminds one of a small hotel in Paris, barely room for two groups of travelers with baggage to pass by. But that... More
