This hotel is very well situated near Union Square and Chinatown, and just a short walk to Moscone or to hop on BART. Parking, like anywhere in downtown SF, is exorbitant, so if you can avoid bringing a car, that would definitely be better. The door staff and valet are helpful, though. The room we had was spacious, with a large bathroom as well. This isn't entirely common in hotels in that area, and I would guess had been achieved by almost entirely gutting the old building and making a new interior layout. This was at the expense of character, which I found the rooms to be lacking. Kind of like you took a Marriott room and set it down in an old building. There are pluses to this approach of course, just depends on what you're looking for. The room was quiet, as dual pane windows isolated us from the noises of the city - which since we were there the night the Giants won the Series, were not insignificant. I have a pathological loathing of windows that cannot open, though, so that was a negative for me. Also in the negative column was that the room was very dark. Cleanliness was excellent.
