This hotel on Union Square is an ideal place to base yourself in San Fran.
Shops, cafes all nearby and about half hour walk down to the pier. We did walk from here to Golden Gate Bridge, and had a bus back. That took us about 2 hours, but we went via Grace Cathedral and Lombard Street.
We really liked the hotel. The room was big, clean, well furnished with two double beds and loads of space. The bathroom was fine. We had a view of the internal courtyard, no big shakes, but no problem.
The staff were all very helpful and efficient.
The pool area was a little tired, though I did have one swim!
The breakfast queue on the first morning was ridiculous, about 20 people waiting to be seated (this was much better on our 2nd/3rd morning). We had breakfast included in the price. This means you get given a voucher. The voucher entitled you to one of three things
1. eggs, bacon/sausage, mushrooms, potatoes, tomato with toast
3. granola with fruit
Either tea or coffee or juice
The food was tasty and service was pretty good.
It's not a cheap hotel, but was reasonable for it's position in the centre of the city.
The Grill Bar is part of the hotel (where breakfast is served in fact) and this was excellent, great food and drinks.
This hotel was suggested to us by friends and I would certainly pass that suggestion on.
