I had a late change in plans and looked for a hotel in San Fransisco near the Mascone Convention Center for a professional meeting in October. All the hotels suggested by the convention were booked, so I looked for a place to stay on Trip Advisor. I found the Bijou, booked it, and was quite pleased with how it worked out. The location was a quick walk to the convention center, very near the BART station (so it was easy to get to and from the airport without paying a lot for a taxi). The staff was great. Warren, the evening lobby clerk, gave some great advice on where to eat, what to do, and was very entertaining to chat with. The room was okay. This place is a little older, but they have kept it up pretty well. The TV had limited channels and not the greatest picture (not a big deal for me) and the mattress was a little too firm, but I can't really complain. It was a good price and in the end worked out real well. I had a room in the back, and it was quiet at night. Others have complained on this site that the rooms overlooking the street are noisy at night, and I can believe them.
