Hotel is recently renovated. Lobby, bar and common areas are all terrific. Room was nice and plenty large enough for 2. Seems like some rooms have great views, although ours on the 5th floor was non existent.
Part we liked best was across the street from Union Square. Cable cars were around the corner, BART station 3 blocks away or so as was the F line street car (both walking distance)
It really is a perfect spot to stay at to explore the city.
