We found this hotel through booking.com and got a fairly good rate BUT not knowing San Francisco better before booking this hotel hurt us ...literally...during our stay. The historic hotel is located on the top of one of the highest hills in SF, making every walk back to the hotel miserable after walking all day touring the city. You will have to spend $6 per ride to take the cable car up the hills (every street around hotel is straight down) or take cabs every day and night unless you are in incredible shape physically. The only place to get food in the hotel is at the Top of the Mark, way up in elevators that take forever. We went up at night to have a cocktail and appetizer and it took forever with a very expensive and limited menu.There are many other fabulous hotels in the city for tourists with a much better location.
