Just stayed in San Fran one night but this place made me want to stay longer. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Loved the valet service, the coffee in the lobby, and their willingness to keep our bags when we got there before checkin time. Our room was on the 13th floor. Very spacious comfortable beds with tons of... More

We recently stayed for 3 nights. We had no complaints at all about the hotel. The rooms were clean although not huge. Again the bathroom was clean but fairly small. We enjoyed the complimentary sherry and tea and coffee. Great location for union square and walking distance from any other attractions. Would recommend this hotel for a city break.

Service over and above - everyone made a point of introducing themselves, and greeting us everyday with offers of assistance with anything we needed, from luggage to the best tours and tickets. The room is smallish (not for San Francisco), but perfectly adequate for our family of 4. Coffee in the morning and sherry in the afternoon are lovely touches.... More

Walking distance to Union square and shopping area. Very close! Staff were helpful and always smile to customer. (Only one we met with moody face) But the rest, they know their customer. The room was clean and comfortable. But a bit too dark. No fridge in room. Water $3.5 per bottle. The toilet have water running noise from upper level... More

This place is beautiful! It's such a great place to stay at, worth the money and the staff is beyond friendly! Will be returning again. Vincent was great at the front desk, and they offer teas and coffee and sherry in the mornings and afternoon. I've been to many hotels, this is certainly one that beats all the places I've... More

A clean, comfortable room at a reasonable SF rate. $45 valet seemed a little steep and the extra $5 to use pool and exercise facilities was uneccessary nickel and dime-ing. The doorman Mario was very helpful for dining tips and directions. Biscuits & Blues is a short walk away.

Booked this place because it seemed to emblishish the best of the City. But as we entered the very small room, with a full size bed, we knew we made a mistake. Apparently both the 5 and 6th floors facing north, look across a roof top, a distance of some 8 feet into the exterior windows of the Elks Lodge's... More

Perfect location. Quiet and personal hotel. Rooms clean and beds exceptionally comfortable. Great value for money. Everything you need. If you want luxury look elsewhere....but for good 3-4* accommodation in the centre of safe, busy, classy area then you can't beat this hotel.
