I enjoyed the Crown Plaza - pleasant staff, clean rooms, good location.
I used Hotwire - $89 + tax = $101 per night. The desk clerk said their contract with Hotwire was for only smoking rooms. Hotels seem to give the worst rooms to Hotwire & Priceline customers. There must have been a lot of available rooms, he gave me a room that he said was no-smoking. The room was on the lowest floor (5th).
-close to many restaurants. Try the nearby Café Espresso or Sears Fine Foods for breakfast. The food court in the lower level of Macy’s is nice for a quick lunch.
-close to the cable car & other public transportation lines. The $24 weekly pass is a good deal. The pass covers cable cars, buses & trolleys, but not BART.
-The hotel staff was helpful & pleasant.
-The hotel was clean & well run. The beds were especially comfortable.
-a lot of noise, especially at night. The first night they emptied nearby dumpsters on at least three occasions during the night. Rooms on higher floors might be a little quieter.
-The area immediately around the hotel and Union Square appear very safe. However, only a block or two west of Union Square is the notoriously dangerous Tenderloin District.
-Some of the furniture was overdue for replacement, but overall the quality was ok.
