This is a hotel that is good value for your money, considering its location very close to Union Square and the friendly staff. The front desk is always available for help or just a quick chat, and there are maps of San Francisco and tours available there. There are sometimes cookies available as well and that is always a nice surprise. Airport shuttle is also available from the hotel.
The room itself is cosy and nice, although a bit small. Our room did not have air-conditioning though so it can get a little stuffy at times and that's when we open the windows. The toilet and shower is a little small too but its good enough and clean.
The best thing is really the location as we could walk to almost everywhere. There are also so many eating places around the hotel so worrying about meals never crossed our minds. The front door is also locked so you are required to swipe your room card before you can enter the lobby and this enhanced security becomes really useful at night. Overall, it is definitely a hotel worth your money :)
