The is an amazing hotel and I will list the reasons why! However, this hotel is let down by its location...
The Hotel staff are the most helpful, kindest and friendliest hotel staff we have ever had the pleasure of speaking with. The two that we spoke to the most were Lawrence and Christian (we think that they are the names). They we there from day one helping us with everything that we needed to know. One time, the free shuttle bus was over booked so they paid for a taxi for us :)
All of the other members of staff were equally as helpful. The hotel was very clean and safe to be in. Everything in the room worked, it was spacious and quiet. The rooftop never seemed to get used but we thought that it was a brilliant place to chill out if you didn't want to leave the hotel.
The one single downside to the hotel is the location. It is in an area known as the Tenderloin. This is one of the most deprived areas I've ever been in and to be honest, it was scary. In fact, we made sure that we didn't come back to the hotel when it was too dark. The hotel staff are aware of this and give great directions to avoid the worst part (head north up Hyde and east down Geary street). Avoid walking south of hotel if you can. One day was walked through it to get to the Civic metro line and it was like walking through a prison playground. However, on the way back we got off 2 stops late and walked along Geary street, which was a lot better.
Please consider staying at this hotel but be aware of the places to avoid.
