I stayed for a week with my girlfriend, visiting SF and attending a conference. The facilities were exactly what you would expect from an urban boutique hotel -- very nice but somewhat cramped. What really made the experience for us, though, is the EXCEPTIONAL service received from the staff, especially Lawrence and Jesse at the front desk. The staff catered to our every whim. For instance, my girlfriend really liked the fruit-infused water next to the front desk, which was taken in every night at 10pm. One night, we got there at 11pm and my girlfriend mentioned to Jesse on our way up how much she had loved the water. The next evening, Jesse apparently arranged for the water to be left out later, without us having made the request! On another occasion, my girlfriend wanted to heat up some leftovers that we had in the fridge (no microwave in the room). Lawrence came up to the room to ask how hot we wanted it heated, saw the "do not disturb" sign on the door, went downstairs to call us and ask, and brought up the properly heated dish about 10 minutes later. Perhaps the best service I had received ANYWHERE, including places like the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok.
The hotel is not perfect. The location is ideal for an urban SF experience -- but urban means that you're next to the two largest nightclubs in town. Try to get a higher floor and expect some ambient noise until 2am on the weekends.
But overall, I'd definitely stay again. Highly recommended especially for heavy sleepers.
