You can't beat the location, only a few blocks from Union Square and cable car stops, next to China Town. It's a very safe area with people always out but surprising how quiet it is in the hotel. The rooms are very clean and the staff very helpful. They gave some great local restaurant recommendations. This is upscale but at a great value and we will stay again next visit.

Thank you so much for the kind review. I am so pleased to read you enjoyed the location and felt safe adventuring through the neighborhood. Not only do the double paned windows do an excellent job of keeping the rooms quiet enough for a peaceful slumber, but they also help keep the warmth of the daytime sun in to reduce the use or need of the heater at night. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

All he best,

We came to this hotel after a terrible experience at another hotel. The front desk staff could not have been more helpful. We had a junior suite which was very spacious. Housekeeping staff is great. The room was nice and clean everyday. The location is close to cable cars and buses which made it easy to get around. Very nice hotel and friendly, helpful staff. I highly recommend it.

I try to see the positive in situations and think some things happen for a reason. Although I am sad to hear your vacation started off rocky at least it led you to us. It sounds like your vacation ended as a memorable one and I am thrilled our team was here to help make that happen. San Francisco is an amazing city with so much to see and do, a good central home base is a necessity. I am very happy you had a good vacation and we hope to see you again.

Sincerely

This is my go-to hotel when in SFO on business or pleasure. The location is superb, just a few blocks from Union Square and a few steps from the main gate to Chinatown. And the quality comes with a rate that, for this city, is very reasonable. Staff is extremely courteous. Don't forget to leave a room key in the slot by the door if you want the temp your way - this is a very green hotel.

A great place to stay in the City. First, location...within walking distance (6 blocks or so at most) of Union Square, two cable car lines, Chinatown, North Beach, and the Ferry Building. Safe and quiet neighborhood with many good restaurants. Second, the rooms...immaculate and tidy with wood and recycled furnishings. Good sized and comfortable. Third, the staff...always a friendly greeting and willing to do anything to make your stay enjoyable. This hotel will be our headquarters in San Francisco from now on.

Room Tip: We stay on the 10th floor in the back. No views but very quiet. Get the Junior Suites.

Thank you so much for the amazing review, all of us here are ecstatic to read this is your new San Francisco headquarters. I could not agree more regarding the location. There is so much to do and see within walking distance. The Ferry Building is one of my favorite areas to stroll around, good food and water front views.

I feel very fortunate to work with such an enthusiastic team; we really do enjoy the opportunity to enhance our guest’s vacation. The housekeepers work so hard and thorough to ensure rooms are spic-n-span. The front desk staff and the concierges truly enjoy sharing their knowledge of the city. We all look forward to your next visit.

All the best,

What a great boutique hotel, just outside the entrance to ChinaTown. Just can't beat the location, which is walking distance to everything. Really nice rooms and service. No realy separate bar area, and I didn't eat there. But, you can walk everywhere from here, so no matter. Recommend the rooms and location.

Thank you for the great review. I am so pleased to read that you stay was a good one. I could not agree more about the location. Many points of interest are an easy walk from the hotel. The others are a simple bus or cable car ride away. We truly appreciate you sharing your experience and recommending our hotel.

I've stayed here countless times since my office is across the street. The location is great, near a lot of necessities and great restaurants. The staff is extremely friendly and always helpful. I've stayed in lots of different kinds of rooms, and different sizes as well. Even in the smallest, they are always clean and you can always be sure you're going to get the same service. I like reliability in a hotel and this one has it. Their gym is pretty much a treadmill (an old one) in a repurposed hotel room. I wouldn't recommend it and say just buy a one-day pass to 24 hour fitness a few blocks away which can be purchased at the front desk. It's very quiet and overall a great value for the money. The restaurant is also good for breakfast and dinner. Instead of waiting a long time for room service (they really just use the waitstaff to do room service) I just make an order and get it "to go" and take it to my room. Much quicker that way!

Thank so you much for the very kind review, we truly appreciate your loyalty and patronage. I am pleased to read that you have received the same quality service during each visit. As you know our Housekeeping team works diligently ensuring tidy rooms. I feel very fortunate to work with a team so passionate about hospitality. I am also delighted to hear you enjoy the restaurant cuisine. I am not sure if you had the opportunity to try the new prix fixe menu option yet, the curry is delectable.

Again, thank you so much for choosing to stay with us when your return to San Francisco. Perhaps one of your future visits could be for pleasure instead work.
