What a breath of fresh air! With the unknown nature of supposedly 'inexpensive' hotels, I was pleasantly surprised by the Remo.
The staff was excellent! From the moment we walked up to the front desk to the sweet cleaning lady who offered me dryer sheets for my load of laundry, It felt like I belonged here.
In looking for accommodations, I always try to procure the places that are different from the cookie-cutter hotels. I want a place with charm, history and sincere service. This place was exactly what I wanted!
Yes, the rooms are small and there are shared bathrooms, but the antiques and carefully chosen collectibles made my stay feel like I was part of San Francisco history.
After each long day out and about exploring this beautiful city, I was welcomed by the massage chair, fresh warm towels and a soothing bath in the superb claw foot bathtub just down the hall.
If you are new to this city, the knowledgeable staff and plenty of brochures and bulletins were there to satisfy your curiosity.
Interested in the supernatural? It's haunted, too. Personal experience showed us that ghosts do exist within this hotel. Even ghosts enjoy the massage chair!
With an excellent, quiet and safe location, the Remo is the cat's meow. I consider it now our 'home away from home'.
