Totally fit the bill for my business trip and meetings across the Square…However, I will say that I felt a bit weird like I was walking into a 1980's brothel. In Eastern Europe. Designed by Dracula. Way over stylized,dated, a tad loud and even a little creepy if you're coming in alone and late night as I did from the... More

The hotel is an average hotel, rooms are not very large and can be a little dark if not facing the main street. All the rooms dont have a safe because of which we were forced to change rooms. However the location of the hotel is fabulous and would recommend it for someone who would like to keep the budget... More

We stayed here in the 'Kids Suite' during Oracle week, (couldn't change dates due to the rest the trip) and yes, rates were very high, but so were all hotels around Union Square. Having spend a week or so prior relaxing in Southern California and Anaheim, trying to find a parking space and walking around the San Fran CBD with... More

Hotel is pretty good. The hotel staff were super friendly and helpful. The location itself was quite ideal. It didn't take us long to get anywhere we wanted to go. The room was lovely and very modern. Beds were comfortable. The only problem we did have was the noise from the street. We were given warning of this by the... More

Our room was large and bed/pillows comfortable. No vanity in bathroom so no bench space but was beautifully tiled and clean. Our room was in the middle of the building so had... More

I absolutely loved this hotel. Its location was absolute perfection. All the stores are walking distance, places to eat, places to see. The staff was very friendly. The beds and pillows are so comfortable that I was a little upset when I got back from vacay and had to sleep on my bed. I recommend this hotel to anyone. I... More

In June spent four nights at this hotel. It is an older hotel that has been renovated but retains some of it's old world charm. Rooms were well furbished, beds were super comfortable, all was clean and well kept. Just half a block from the Powell turn around for the cable car which takes you right down to Fisherman's Wharf.... More
