“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

I had a feeling that given the high prices of hotels in San Francisco this hotel would be good but not worth the money we had paid. I was wrong. This was our first stop on our three week honeymoon and we had an excellent experience at this hotel. The room was very comfortable and had a nice bathroom. The staff were friendly and welcoming and very aware of the amount of time they kept us for after 20 hours of travelling. Its rare to find staff putting your need to sleep over their need to sell you all of their services. They simply invited us to come back the following morning if we needed any further assistance/information.

The only negative thing we encountered was a lot of loud noise from the alleyway below at around 5am in the mornings. I guess this is the compromise you make in big cities and probably not avoidable anywhere given that work in the cities tend to start early.

They had a happy hour with free drinks in the restaurant in the afternoons which was a lovely idea and we really enjoyed sipping our drinks whilst looking at the great views out over the city.

Breakfast was good, great service from the waiters. Location was excellent and perfect for Union Square.

On my recent one week experience at the MMClub for the National Blue Star Mothers of America Convention I must say I was extremely pleased with this hotel.
I had stayed there many times, and attended a play and an event in the past as an Army Officer's wife, and it was very nice.
Now, back again years later as a Marine, Blue Star Mom, I see the upgrades made to the hotel, and a very professional staff. My room was taken care of so fast and very clean. The staff is friendly and eager to be helpful. The breakfast and dinners were delicious. I highly recommend the hotel and the great location in the middle of "downtown" San Francisco is fantastic. Thank YOU!
Semper Fi,
Happy Customer

We discovered this hotel through a friend. We loved staying there. It is an old hotel but located in a great part of town. Close to China Town, Powell St, Cable cars and other public transportation. The hotel is nicely decorated with items from several wars. The museum there is very interesting.
The rooms are small but very clean, as you would expect in a military facility. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Jeff the bell hop made you feel personally welcome.
We enjoyed the free cocktail hour daily and a wonderful full breakfast each morning. The view from the dining room is breathtaking. Highly recommend you have dinner there at least once.
The is by far the best deal in San Francisco!

Room Tip: As high up a you can get.

A wonderful little hotel with so much character and soul. All the staff were very friendly indeed without exception. The breakfasts were excellent with a lot of choice and the free drinks at happy hour a generous touch. The location was absolutely perfect for Union Square and other restaurants which were within easy walking distance. Our only disappointment was that the room was too small for a family of 4, especially as we had booked-in for a week. Also, although we were on the 8th floor, the noise from the outside traffic was still quite loud. Would definitely stay there again but would request a bigger room on a higher floor.

Was a little dated in the rooms. Just like the military, no frills, but everything worked. Air conditioner was nice and cool, and there was even a ceiling fan. A lot of great history in the hotel, but for me, the great location was the main benefit. Within minutes from Chinatown and Little Italy. You can walk down to Fisherman's Warf, but the walk back is killer. Steep uphill grade for about 30 blocks. You can, of course, take the recommended street cars. Breakfast buffet was awesome, including the SOS.

Stayed here for a few nights with fellow Marines on a weekend trip we took up from SoCal. Wow. I love history and unique buildings and this was it. Beautiful rooms; very clean, LARGE bathroom and extremely comfortable bed. Mini fridge was a nice addition to put left-overs in. Excellent staff and incredible breakfast on the top floor, with a gorgeous view of the city. I loved every minute of it, will stay again if I find myself in this city again.
