This hotel (circa 1910) on Nob Hill shows a dated elegance. The lamps, headboards and dressers are ornate. Very stylish paintings adorn the walls of the rooms and hallways. The bathroom fixtures are European style double knobbed faucets, but the shower fixtures show their age. We had a junior suite with a kitchenette. There's a small sitting room alcove with a small desk and sofa, 2 beds, a large bathroom (with a large tub/jacuzzi, and 2 sinks), and a modern kitchenette with full sized refrigerator, compact microwave oven, electric cooktop and oven and toaster. Rooms are clean, although the towels had a few flecks of colored lint. The sound of the water in the heating radiator and the cooing of pigeons in the central "courtyard" lull you to sleep, although you can hear the muffled conversation and creaking of the guests walking in the room above, or the closet door sliding closed in the adjoining room. The main door to the room from corridor has a 2" gap at the bottom, so I plugged this with a bath towel to block out the hallway lights at night and stifle the sounds in our room.The television is old (cathode ray tube, not flat screen), and there were very few channels available (NBC, CNN, PBA, CW, ESPN, ESPN2), even fewer than those listed on the TV channel card provided. The hotel is located on Nob Hil near Union Squarel, so be prepared to walk up and down some steep side streets to get to the Powell BART station. Tenderloin district is adjacent, so be careful where you walk, especially at night. Continental breakfast with croissants, muffins, pastries and fruit, coffee and tea. Still, for <$175 a night through AAA discount for midweek during a convention, it was a great deal, close to the Moscone Convention Center.
