My wife and I spent 5 nights in San Francisco and stayed at the Steinhart throughout. I initially booked it on the basis of value (Sterling was much weaker against the dollar than it is today so accommodation was expensive).
The hotel is in good condition and has a lot of character. We had a deluxe studio, which was spacious and well equiped, especially the kitchen.
The Murphy bed was small for me since I'm over six foot but was comfortable and the hotel was quiet at night.
We walked everywhere in SF. Fisherman's Wharf is at least 30 minutes away (at our "London Pace") and involves two step hills. Union Square is 10 minutes away.
There are a couple of decent restaurants a couple of blocks north but not much in the immediate neighbourhood. The Tenderloin area, a couple of blocks south, is best avoided but not dangerous.
If you are looking for a decent value base then the Steinhart is for you. If you are looking for premium service and proximity to the main attractions then it isn't.
