This hotel is very nice but is located at the top of Nob Hill which is very steep. For those young and out of shape, you can conquer the hill after a few nights of adjusting your calves, but older folk may have difficulty managing the hill. Fortunately, there are numerous transportation options, so if you are not in the mood to walk up the hill one time, a cab can help you out.
For some reason, the rooms at the hotel vary greatly. Although all of the rooms are very nice, some are bigger than others and furniture can differ. The bathroom was a bit small for my taste, especially since the closet was a walk-in (which is unnecessary in my book), but it was still nice.
One thing to note is that the infamous Tonga Room located in the hotel is only open Wed-Sun, so we missed our opportunity thinking we could go on a Monday or Tuesday night. I've heard it's a must see.
