The San Remo is not the type of hotel I typically stay at as I am a business traveler and typically stay at Marriott or Hyatt properties but had to look for an alternative in SF last week due to a convention sending prices into the $700/night range for these properties. So I had to look for an alternative that didn't blow the expense budget and the San Remo had good reviews. It turns out they are well earned. The hotel is as advertised with shared bathrooms and small rooms but it is clean, the bed is comfortable, the staff is pleasant and it is in a quiet area. If you are looking for basic lodging at a fair price, you can do a lot worse than the San Remo.
