Loved The Mayflower & can't really fault it. The location is a few blocks from Union Square & Chinatown which is fantastic. The hotel offers FREE car parking if you let them know when you make your reservation. Be careful if you have anything other than a compact as it is tight in there! But, it will save you at least $40 a day so well worth it. The front staff were very friendly & offered help & advice when asked; I was given an excellent running route. I would absolutely recommend it & would stay here again if I was ever to return to San Francisco.
