“Best deal in San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We discovered this hotel through a friend. We loved staying there. It is an old hotel but located in a great part of town. Close to China Town, Powell St, Cable cars and other public transportation. The hotel is nicely decorated with items from several wars. The museum there is very interesting.
The rooms are small but very clean, as you would expect in a military facility. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Jeff the bell hop made you feel personally welcome.
We enjoyed the free cocktail hour daily and a wonderful full breakfast each morning. The view from the dining room is breathtaking. Highly recommend you have dinner there at least once.
The is by far the best deal in San Francisco!

Room Tip: As high up a you can get.

A wonderful little hotel with so much character and soul. All the staff were very friendly indeed without exception. The breakfasts were excellent with a lot of choice and the free drinks at happy hour a generous touch. The location was absolutely perfect for Union Square and other restaurants which were within easy walking distance. Our only disappointment was that the room was too small for a family of 4, especially as we had booked-in for a week. Also, although we were on the 8th floor, the noise from the outside traffic was still quite loud. Would definitely stay there again but would request a bigger room on a higher floor.

Was a little dated in the rooms. Just like the military, no frills, but everything worked. Air conditioner was nice and cool, and there was even a ceiling fan. A lot of great history in the hotel, but for me, the great location was the main benefit. Within minutes from Chinatown and Little Italy. You can walk down to Fisherman's Warf, but the walk back is killer. Steep uphill grade for about 30 blocks. You can, of course, take the recommended street cars. Breakfast buffet was awesome, including the SOS.

Stayed here for a few nights with fellow Marines on a weekend trip we took up from SoCal. Wow. I love history and unique buildings and this was it. Beautiful rooms; very clean, LARGE bathroom and extremely comfortable bed. Mini fridge was a nice addition to put left-overs in. Excellent staff and incredible breakfast on the top floor, with a gorgeous view of the city. I loved every minute of it, will stay again if I find myself in this city again.

We booked this hotel for a 3 night stay and were holding our breath as we have had some very marginal hotels in SF. I would say that this hotel far exceeded expectations. Not only are the rooms really good (for an older property) but the staff service was absolutely superior. This hotel is a real 'find' and the best value you could imagine in the City. Great restaurants nearby is a plus.

Room Tip: We had a room in the back. Like all urban hotels some noise is likely on the street side.
