This could be a great hotel, but there were a few things that really turned me off. First, I had read reviews and knew the rooms were going to be small, but they are tiny - just enough room to walk around the bed and into a bathroom - it made me feel very claustrophobic. And the window was frosted so there was no view or natural sunlight. Second, our room was right next to an ice machine, which was very loud and woke us up several times during the night. Third, the cleaning service started vacuuming the hallways at 8:30 in the morning! Which also woke us up. Come on - people want to sleep in on their vacations! The great thing about this hotel was its location - it's right on the embarcadero and near the ferry building which is very central and lively. There was also a great restaurant/bar attached. The decor of the hotel is also lovely & unique. If I went to San Francisco again I would probably choose a more spacious hotel, but if you don't plan on being in the room a lot, this would be a good choice.
