My wife and I stayed at Queen Anne one night on business. It is in Japan town. Quiet area, clean part of the city. There are other hotels on the same street, though I am glad I stayed here. Down the road from a Catholic school and Buddhist Church of America offices. It is about a 3-4 block walk from bus routes. You can catch the trolley not far from there or they have a limo you can get in the AM to go to Fisherman's Warf. If you want to save money you can walk about that distance to a Good Foods Grocery store and get some fancy deli to bring back to your room. The hotel parking is right across the street and is $14. They give you a ticket to put in your window. You must let them know when you check in that you need the parking, spaces are limited. There is also on street city parking that is free during evening, but you must be out of the spaces by a certain time if on the street. The hotel has a little bit of an old building smell to it, but that can be expected of a historic place. This is probably the only "complaint" I have. The staff was very cordial and helpful. The decor in the hotel is fascinating if you like victorian, which I do. Very elegant. We stayed in room 206 which had 2 queens and a fire place. Fire place was nice. Had one of those logs that you light and it lasted for 3 hours. There was no air conditioning, but that was not needed this time of year as San Fran gets quite cold in July at night. We opened one of the windows and turned on the heater and had a comfortable sleep. Room was very clean. The small bathroom had nice soaps, shampoo, etc. The beds were very comfortable, a little soft and definately not like the hard ones you find in some places. Check in and out was a snap. Of course the San Fran hotel and parking taxes will get you, so be ready for them. We were not able to get breakfast, which starts at 7 am, as we had to be somewhere at that time, but I am sure it was very nice. Area was quiet during the night. So, if you want a unique experience I would go with the Queen Ann. I am so glad we went there instead of your basic hotel. I am posting their address on my work place bulletin board in case my work mates want to spend a day or so in San Fran. Finally, it does have an elevator...through I liked going the stairs to see the paintaings on the walls. It was a great value for my pocket book and a place I will always recommend. Chuck Boardman
