“The best deal in San Fran”
Reviewed August 8, 2004

Most of the reviews I read were right on the money. This place is fantastic! Clean, nicely decorated and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. I haven't stayed at any other hotels in San Fran and I won't since I found this one.

Stayed here for four nights at the end of June for a conference. Great price compared with the other hotels, and everything was great with the room. Good area of town, (never tried the restaurant). I would stay here again.

This by far is the best Boutique Hotel of SF. All I can say about this place is positive!
Cafe Andre Rocks!
Beds were like being at home, and the rooms are fantastic! Great water presure in the showers which in SF is hard to find!
The staff, WONDERFUL! Chris at the front desk is a GEM! Totally knows his stuff.

We stayed at this hotel with our 1 1/2 yr. old and 4 yr. old kids. I would recommend this place. The $35 valet parking is worth it if you have young children.
