I stayed three nights in this hotel on the first leg of my trip to the USA and I really think the reviews here on Trip Advisor are unfairly off-putting to would-be travellers.
First thing I learned while planning my trip - San Francisco is expensive. This hotel isn't cheap, but by the standards of the city it is middle of the road. And that is exactly what you get. It isn't and doesn't pretend to be five star, but it does provide good service, clean and comfortable rooms, and it's in a fantastic location, just two minutes' walk from Union Square which also makes public transport to other parts of the city very accessible.
The bed was the most comfortable I have slept on, and I really liked the style and decor of the room
Do realise that such a central location means you will hear city noise at all hours, so be prepared for that. Perhaps they should look into better soundproofing.
The other downside is the elevator, which had me worried a couple of times that it might get stuck. The breakfast was very basic, but as I never need more than juice and a slice of toast, I was content.
I'd definitely stay again, this hotel suited me just fine.
