Stayed here for 4 nights in September and would definitely recommend. The hotel is well located, close to union square, shopping and restaurants. There are not a lot of amenities, ie pool, fitness centre, but rooms are nicely decorated and appointed. The breakfast in the restaurant in the morning was well done and dinner ordered from the bar in the evening was really good. Wine tasting in the bar is a nice touch.
Front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful and the bartender was great.
Coffee makers in the room would be a nice upgrade. Free coffee in lobby is nice but who wants to get dressed before their first hit of caffeine:-)
