I love this hotel. Yes, it's a little worn, but, heck, it was built in 1908. For the most part, the rooms are nicely updated. There's no view to speak of, but the location can't be beat. You step out of the lobby door and on to the cable car (or in the back of the long line). It's also steps away from the bus stop and BART. The weekday wine tasting is good; the continental breakfast less so. My friend and I booked through Hotwire's mystery hotel, so we got a good deal. There were no rooms with two beds when we checked in, so we upgraded to the junior suite ... still a good deal and very spacious. Yes, the walls are thin and you can hear street noise, but that's what earplugs are for. The woman at the front desk was extremely helpful. All in all it was a good experience. I would stay here again.
