A very old, historic (almost Victorian in essence) hotel. Well located, at walking distance (4 blocks) from Union Sq. (a central touristic point to start al your sightseeing tours in SF).
It is located at the corner of Post St. and Jones St. If you turn south in Jones You’ll enter the Tenderloin (a district depicted in Will Smith’s movie “The Pursuit of Happiness”), safe to walk in any time of the day, I would not recommend to walk it at night
If you turn north, You’ll start to climb Nob Hill, the place for old mansions and high income society. A posh hotel, cathedral, very nice spot of SF, impeccable views.
The hotel has, nice rooms, but don’t go for the lower prices ones. They are small and look to an inner patio… They are not nice.
I took a suite almost right at the corner, and it was very nice. Ample bathroom, a kitchenette, a large window looking to Jones St. Room Drawbacks, the heating system must be date from the lates 1800. Hot water through radiators. Noisy. They turn it on at 6 pm and of at 10 pm. For me, that like to be almost naked, the room remained cold. We went in last days of may.
The hotel is old and not so well preserved. But is very well located, at very decent prices (one thing that SF doesn’t offer)
We went by car. From the moment you ask the valet parking to bring it, it takes at least 20 minutes to arrive. Sometimes, they’ll forget You asking. So be patient and pay attention.
Last chapter, the breakfast. I would not rather say that it has breakfast included, unless You call breakfast to self service from a pot with coffee, a pot with hot water, some tea bags selection, a basket of rolls or muffins or buns (they change the selection every day) or sometimes apples (no muffins or rolls that day). All served in the reception lobby in paper vases and paper plates, no tables, just the cushions and seats that the lobby has. A very nice reception lobby indeed. They should improve the breakfast service or not to serve it at all.
