We stayed here for our 25 year anniversary & were greeted with a bottle of red wine when we checked in. We really enjoyed our stay here, the staff were very pleasant & helpful & would always say hello as we came & went. Actually everyone there including maids & valet's were very friendly. Loved the Rooftop restaurant Zengari where we had one of the best meals we've ever had! Loved all the nearby places to eat. Enjoyed breakfast at Pinecrest on the next block & an excellent steak dinner at John's Steakhouse. We also enjoyed our Sopa Ranchera, carnitas tacos & margaritas at Matador & our sushi at Ryokos. We will definitely stay here the next time we visit The City.

Hotel clean & good COVID precautions. Room large & spacious. Location was centrally located with major areas within walking distance. We walked to Ghirardelli Square, the Wharf, Nob Hill, Coit Tower, Union Square & my favorite place for an Irish Coffee, the Buena Vista.

First off...they have the most comprehensive covid-19 policies I have seen in my 4 hotels during the pandemic and seem to do a great job implementing them. The hotel is nice, and in a good area, but very close to a bad area as well. SF is having major issues right now during the pandemic and you can see the city is suffering everywhere. The room was very nice, clean, comfortable, functional. Great bed and bathroom! Internet not good. Tv randomly loses signal for a long time and resets itself. Overall, I was pretty happy and enjoyed my stay.
