My friend and I stayed six nights, and it was a great experience. The room was clean and tidy, the staff was helpful and friendly, and the location was safe and close to tourist attractions and transportation. The price for all this was excellent.
We had a basic room with two beds and a private bathroom. Our requests that the room have a mini-fridge (which has no extra charge) and that it be on a higher floor were met. Our room faced Sutter Street, which could be a concern for some because of the street noise. Personally, my friend and I didn't mind it. The window allowed for fresh air, and as funny as this may sound, we could check what people were wearing, which helped us pick our clothes for the day (the weather in San Fran goes from cold to hot pretty easily during the summer days, for those that don't know; bring a sweater and dress in layers!). The WiFi occasionally didn't work, but it was decent overall. There's also a well-equipped kitchen on the third floor that we used.
The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. If you don't already have an itinerary, you can ask them what to do and where to eat, and you'll receive great suggestions. We were able to check in early on the day we arrived (the room was being cleaned, but we stored our luggage in the closet). As we had a late flight on the day of our departure, we were able to store our suitcases safely with the staff after checking out and pick them up later.
The location was wonderful. We felt safe in the area. It was a block from Chinatown and a couple blocks from Union Square. Good restaurants and shopping were nearby. Transportation was easy to access. We were a few blocks away from the Powell BART Station, which we used to get to and from the airport. It was recommended to us by the staff that we use the Montgomery BART Station, which is also a few blocks away (same ticket price, but there are likely fewer crowds to get through).
Just a note: Try the old elevator at least once! It's quaint and worth the experience, in my opinion. Otherwise, you can always take the stairs and get your exercise.
All in all, it's not a five-star hotel, but everything that it offers is worth the price. I would definitely stay here again.
