The Donatello is one of the best kept secrets in San Francisco. The hotel is clean, the staff are friendly and welcoming and the location is great. Park your car at the hotel and head down to Union Square and watch all the shoppers. Taxis, cable cars or buses are within a block of the hotel. The hotel is in the heart of the shopping district so it can get noisy. Asking for a room at the back side will help out with less noise on Post Street. Remember, this is a big city, you can't get away from city noises. The concierge provides shopping passes to get shopping deals down at the square. Chinatown is within walking distance. Its just a fun place to stay when visiting the city.
