The outward appearance of this hotel is funky. Lots of primary colors and palm trees in the center court. Ensenada perhaps.
But there is a lot too like about this place. First on our list when choosing a place is that it is dog friendly ( no extra charge). The rates for San Francisco are moderate (averaging 190/night for the last 2 days of april and first 4 days of May), especially considering that parking is included. This is huge around here. The room was a decent size, well furnished, clean and comfortable.
The staff is friendly and thoughtful.
The continental breakfast is above average in quality. Good bagels, nice pastries, oatmeal and good orange juice. Coffee and tea are available 24 hours. Cookies in the lobby from 4PM.
There are a plethora of restaurants in easy walking distance on or near Lombard and Union streets. Two we rally liked are Alegria (Spanish) and Umami (Japanese). One we did not care for was Tacolicious. It is very popular, but extremely noisy and cramped. Food was just OK.
We would definitely return to Hotel Del Sol.
