We were travelling as a couple and had a very enjoyable 6 night stay at this conveniently located hotel. The staff are welcoming and eager to help. The complimentary breakfast is good, you can help yourself to tea and coffee any time of the day and the hotel is filled with the delicious smell of freshly baked cookies every evening... More

Perfect urban location, downtown. Outstanding service, interpersonal graciousness- Omar (days) and Olivia (eve). Wonderful wine, cheese, crackers at cocktail hour. Very clean. Gracious decor -neither overdone stuffy nor coldly spare. Especially liked the parlors on each floor with coffee and tea service and table and chairs. A welcome change of scenery for reading or chatting. Loved it!

This hotel has a small, friendly feel to it. The staff were excellent, our bedroom was a very good size and both clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent. The evening wine tasting a nice 'extra' touch. Like a lot of places in downtown SF it's quite an old building. Overall good value.

I booked this place for a father's day mini vacation for my husband and myself. We stayed there one night because it's right next to the SF Playhouse where we had tickets. The Inn is located on a busy street, but you would never feel it one you were inside. The elevator creaks and groans on its way up and... More

Excellent hotel, great position 30seconds walk to Union Square, where you can board one of the old open hang on trams. You have a 10 minute walk to board a tram that takes you to Fishermans Wharf. On our arrival and throughout our stay we found all staff friendly and polite. The hotel is very clean with a great mixture... More

So I found this hotel to be a great deal. It's located really close to Union Square and it's really convenient. The rooms are comfortable and have everything you need. They offer a continental breakfast and a wine hour with snacks. They also have apples and oranges available on every floor. I would definitely stay here again.

We confirmed the reservation a few times with different questions. When we got there, the hotel does not have rooms with 2 beds. I was with a girlfriend. Not looking... More
