Three nights there on a business trip. It's in a less hinky area than the other hotels around the Moscone center--the walk home at night wasn't so, um....interesting. It's a smaller property and lower key than the nearby Marriott Marquis and other bigger hotels, which I like. Low-key is good after a stressful work day at the Moscone. There's no fancy top floor bar like at the Marquis. Even so, there's still a *reasonably priced* and decent bar and restaurant, and a decent-enough deli/wine shop right across the street in case you want to grab a sandwich and bottle of wine. Osha Thai, a block away, has decent Americanized Thai food.
Rooms were clean and comfortable and up to current, business-traveller standards. The clementina street side gets the sunset sun. The folsom street the sunrise sun, and the second street side the the afternoon sun. The rooms near the elevator on the first street side have a bay view facing northeast, but it's a distant bay view. Check GoogleMaps if lighting is important to you. It ain't motel 6; my room was $250 a night.
There's just one negative: the pool sucks. It's tiny, and in an approbriately tiny indoor room, and the hot tub whirlpool struck me as a human bacteria frap, ala Seinfeld. I opted out, and I'm a big fan of an evenning swim after a stressful work day. The smell of cholorine in that room burned my eyes. They should consider switching to a saline pool and getting some fans and/or ventilation in the pool room. Or, they could turn the courtyard--just a smoking area at this point--into a pool? (OK. That was for the Marriott people who I know will read this!)
