I stayed at the Andrews Hotel for a few days in February 2013. I have to say, on arrival the hotel is charming, vintage and unique. There was a table with water and coffee and a small check-in desk. The woman at the front when I arrived was great! I arrived early (check in at 3, I arrived at 11), and asked if i could leave my luggage at the desk. She checked to see if the room was clean, and said I might even be able to check-in early. Sure enough it was... "clean."On that note... I don't know if "clean" was really "clean." I'll touch on this later.
The room was no-frills, decor was dated, borderline creepy. The light switched buzzed, lights flickered on... like an old motel room. The bathroom was small, the toilet almost sat beneath the sink. I'm tall and my legs almost hit the piping under the porcelain sink. Shower didn't have a bath, but the water pressure was nice..... The draining.... WAS NOT. The sink would fill with water to the point where it almost spilled over.... showers were quick.
The bed was ok, the alarm clock didn't go off, and the carpet was dirty. There were socks that weren't mine, dust bunnies and although the house keeper was charming... she could have done a better job... OR the room shouldn't have been made available... although VERY courteous, it's still poor customer service to open a dirty room.
Still... I decided to give it a chance, after all the location was great.... besides the bordering Tenderloin district.... where I didn't feel to safe walking through to the MUNI.... and the loud guests behind the building SCREAMING and YELLING like drunken idiots on a Wednesday and Thursday night (Can just imagine a weekend). The room is close to a hub of transit. I Personally did NOT like Union Square... It was very commercial, I walked through it stopped at the diesel store and went on my way..... nothing interesting.
Would I stay here again? Maybe.... It'd be out of curiosity though.... to see if the experience was simply a fluke. The hotel is charming, from the elevator to the wonderful breakfast spread... The staff was mostly great... Wish i had names... all but one lady (who I actually think may have been the owner or manager.... she was very condescending).
All in all, if you can get the room for a discount... book... upon arrival check the cleanliness. Stay out of the tenderloin, and don't expect a quite sleep.
