I obtained an incredible end of year rate on this hotel. I felt like a total hipster walking into the dimly lit hotel and registering. Thought: You scored big on this one!! Staff was wonderful and effecient. The feeling continued in the low subdued lighting of the elevators. THEN, entered room.and the hipster phase ended abruptly. The window faced the other wall of hotel and somewhat of an alley situation. Oh well I surmised these must be the rooms that are sold on the 3rd party sites. The room had the mod furnishings but I couldn't put my finger on why it didn't feel like the Lobby area. Then it hit me as I looked at the door to room , closet and bathroom. This was obviously an old hotel. It appeared to have the same original doors and molding that they painted mauve in an attempt to modernize the room. That explains why the bathrooms are so small. Whereas the Downstairs was completely redone, the rooms appear to only have partial remodeling done and it doesn't quite make it. The hotel should have redone the rooms with new doors and perhaps sheet rock. It gives off the impression, they ran out of money when remodeling the rooms or that the rooms can't decide if they are going to be old San Francisco rooms like the Palace or Modern Hipster rooms. So rooms underwhelming-split personality compared to downstairs/elevator. Great location. Close to Union Square & theater district. Staff effecient and very pleasant.
