It is a bit quirky but not bad. The room smelled funny (cigarettes perhaps, also there were dogs wandering around the hotel so perhaps that's the reason).
Also my bed was right under the air-con unit. Even though the fan/unit was switched off, unfortunately it still let in some ambient freezing cold air which gave me a head-cold every night. I had to sleep with the covers over my head unfortunately :-(
The wine-hour and cookie-hours are a nice touch, as is the 10$ raid-the-minibar thing where you get to take whatever you want from the minibar up to a value of $10.
The location was excellent, right near Union Square.
If I visited SF again I'd likely stay in a more "run of the mill" place although this was a typical taste of everything SF had to offer.
The service was fantastic - all of the guys at the front desk were v helpful.
