Not too fancy, just right. Plus, you can get everywhere from their door. Save your money for restaurants...don't blow it on over-priced hotels. The staff are really accomodating, and there are really great places to walk to nearby.

The hotel is very well located, a few minutes walk from union square (5 mins if that). The rooms were adequately sized although the bathroom we had was a little small. The decor in the rooms is a bit tired however the hotel is currently in the process of being refurbished (there was no noise or disturbance from this). We... More

We stayed here on the final stretch of a 2 week tour in the states. The hotel staff were very welcoming and friendly on our Check in and we were given access to our room at this time despite it being 8am. This was very much appreciated as we were tired after an overnight flight from Hawaii. The roaring fire... More

the hotel was centrally located for all planned activity. although the choices for breakfast restaurants was limited to one. the entertainment choices were many, although the streets were very crowded, and noisy, the hotel maintained a level of peace and quit, was able to afternoon nap!

First off San Francisco is an e pensive city and hotels are not cheap. The hotel is in a good location only few hundred meters from Union Square and all it shops. There is a cable car stop right at the corner that will take you all the way to Fishermans Warf. Diner next door but it is over priced... More

This hotel is clean, has a great location in Union Square, and has a welcoming, friendly staff. Rooms are small but have high ceilings which makes them airy and interesting. Also a great way to experience what hotels were like architecturally in the 1920 to 1950 time period.

Friendly reception staff. Our room was compact, queen sized bed with a couple of chairs. Furniture was in keeping with the style of the hotel. Hotel undergoing refurbishment but that did not affect us. Bathroom also compact but had everything you need. Very handy for Union Square. No restaurant or bar on premises. 20% discount voucher available for Lori's 24hr... More

After a faultless stay at 4 previous Hotels on our trip we arrived at San Fransisco, on arrival at the Hotel we encountered a very un-friendly check in that was only matched by a very small hostel type room, the hotel has very poor / lack of facilities, we did find the night staff far more professional and friendly, I...

The best part of this hotel is its central location just footsteps from the cable car line...and it is budget friendly considering that it is a big city hotel. The hotel is old, but it has very nice public spaces and the rooms are furnished similarly to other Best Western hotels. However, as in a lot of big cities, the... More

The location of the hotel is spot on. Everything is close to what you need. Shopping, excursions and about a 20-30 minutes walk from Fisherman's Wharf. If you're not much for car rental in a big city or public transport that's fine, just make sure to bring your hiking shoes. San Francisco is very walk friendly. The staff is very... More
