This hotel is a bit of a mixed bag - the public parts are dated, although in quite a good nick. The staff is polite and friendly and the rooms are in a very good conditions, fairly spacious with good furniture, be it slight dated as well ...and comfortable beds. On the first day they gave me a room at the back but near the lifts (blame Expedia I was told...), so there was a frequent (tolerable) whoosh during the day - on request they have moved me the next day to a room away from the lifts (There are plenty of lifts and they are very fast!).
The location is good, on Van Ness, close to many shops and cafes, especially on Polk St. - yes, it is not that close to the tourists attractions, but if you don't want to walk for about 20 minutes or so to the town centre, then use public transport or take a cab. The hotel offers a decent shuttle service to SFO which is fairly cheap ($14 per person) and it takes approx. 45 minutes.
