This is a great location right in Union Square. It was my second experience there but I don't think it's been upgraded. I was unable to get WiFi on the 5th floor 95% of the 5 days we were there. Café/Bar in lobby & Kuleto's restaurant were excellent. Concierge was most helpful. It is expensive for what you get &... More

We arrived in San Francisco on the final leg of our honeymoon very early in the morning. On booking this hotel initially, we were told that this would not be an issue and that we could check in and sleep in our room after our red eye flight. Upon arriving at the hotel, the inept manager told us that our... More

There are many other better spots to stay in SF! The location is good although its very difficult to get in and out. The rooms are loud and very old. Walls desperately need to be painted and are moldy. The cleaning service picked trash up off my floor and put on my bed. I was pretty disgusted staying here, very... More

This hotel is located in the proximity of union square, so the position is ideal. For the rest people in the reception (really crowded) seems always busy and don't give you much attention. The room is small and old, the bathroom needs a big renovation and the wifi is working bad. The hotel is also expensive. if you need to... More

I spent a week at the hotel and on my last day some of my toiletry items (cologne, razor, shampoo, ..) were taken from my room - total value of ~US$200. I talked to the hotel manager immediately, but for my surprise he completely ignored my request. Despite all my efforts, a month has passed and the hotel has done... More

We found the room quite small and it faced powell street which was extremely noisy at night. Location was great and room was very clean. Staff were very helpfull and friendly and especially enjoyed the antipasto in the bar norcini.

As a business traveler, this is one of our company's preferred hotels but the preferred rate is rarely available. Finally got to stay here and I was happy with the location. It's near the hustle and bustle of union square so it's on a really busy street but BART nearby makes it convenient. Rooms are what I would consider "European"... More

For almost 300$ I expected much more than small, stinking room without parking. Maybe I paid for hotel attraction: moth. The only good point is hotel location. But than again, central location means noice. Maybe it is worthy to put soundproof windows.
