The design and style of the rooms, beds, chairs, desks was awesome, the look of the room was just about as retro beautiful as I hoped. The diner had decent food, I got a San Fran beer and good veggie burger. For dinner I had a salad and wine delivered from the organic pizza place, this was also a good price.
The hotel is noisy though!! I stayed in the courtyard area and the noise comes mostly from thin walls and housekeeping slamming doors, vacuuming and talking/yelling across the courtyard and children running up and down the outdoor walkways. This was so noisy that it was hard to sleep even with earplugs and I had to really make conscious efforts not to be distracted by the noise when I was in my room in the day. The walls were so thin that I could hear the people in the next room talking and could definitely hear the guy snoring. This too, was so loud that even with earplugs I could hear snoring.
The noise was definitely a draw-back that reminded me that underneath the cool design it was at heart a cheap best western, though it was still a good place to stay in san francisco on a budget.
