I booked this hotel last minute using reward points. I requested a room with two double beds but received a room with a king bed, a rollaway, huge wraparound sofa and a dining room table. I guess most people would be pleased with the extra space and furniture, but I wasn't happy about having to move said furniture around to make room for the rollaway when we were bone weary. The rollaway was comfortable though, as was the king bed. However, the overall look of the furnishings was quite shabby - like the place hadn't been thoroughly cleaned or updated for years.
The fridge didn't work. It was quite chilly outside but the windows allowed drafts and the heater didn't work well. The bathroom: had to straddle the toilet in order to allow the door to close. The shower was inoperable - had to take a bath rather than a shower. And they authorized money against my credit card for "incidentals" after assuring me at check-in that they wouldn't.
On the plus side the breakfast quality and selection were quite good, and the location is great - very near the airport, with free shuttle to access the BART from the airport.
SF is an expensive city. I saved money by staying near the airport but I still think there are nicer choices within the same price range.
