I booked the Baldwin Hotel as an affordable choice in the central, downtown area of San Francisco. I was extremely impressed by the location - immediately near the main shopping part of the city, and really convenient for all main attractions, transport links. I'd say the location was ideal. The hotel had all the facilities you'd expect. I wouldn't say it was high quality / luxury, but you get what you pay for. But the room was a good size with a nice, new-looking bathroom. Had good stuff like free wifi, free coffee in the lobby, free toiletries etc. Nice touch was some towels folded into a dog shape to greet me - unusual!! Fun touch! Staff were helpful, happy to store my luggage for the day. Minor criticisms: the room and bathroom were generally clean, but I did find a few stray hairs that definitely weren't mine, on the towels and sheets, Also, ice was only available in the lobby (I was on 7th floor), so bit inconvenient. There was only one elevator, and it was very slow, so usually had to wait to get between lobby and room. However, I'd also add that I was a young woman travelling alone, so safety was important to me, and I felt completely safe and comfortable at the Baldwin. Overall, very good value. I would recommend this hotel.
