I've been coming to San Francisco frequently for two years and this is by far the best place I've stayed.
First, it is extremely well located on a safe, clean, and reasonably quiet block of Sutter Street, only 1 1/2 blocks from Union Square. So you can walk to shopping, theater, Chinatown, Financial District, and cable cars and busses are a few steps away. As a single female traveler, I feel safe here on the street and in the hotel and in my room.
Right now in the off season, I am staying here for an incredible $104 a night in a room that will be $250+ a night this summer. The decor is beautiful and stylish, with bright South of France colors. Very cheerful.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. My room is large (by downtown San Francisco standards). I'm staying here a month for work and leisure and spend a fair amount of time in the room working on my laptop. There is plenty of space for me to work without being cramped.
There is a restaurant in the hotel that serves breakfast and dinner and also room service. Food is very good. And, there are many nearby inexpensive options in close walking distance.
This is very comfortable for me for a long-term stay, as well as being the best price I could find.
