We stayed in the Stanyan Park Hotel on the last night of our trip to SF and had had trouble finding anywhere because of it being a Friday night.
The hotel is OK - the descriptions talk about it being refurbished which is fine if you like the idea of a faded 1950s B&B refurbishment with lots of pink and chintz.. I actually found it quite depressing and reminded me of too many faded British seaside hotels.
We had a room that was "internal" so we had one very small window in the bedroom that looked out onto an internal shaft (I think it was room 103?) and the window in the bathroom (which was huge and lovely by the way!) looked directly into the room next door and we could hear everything they were saying. I have to say that their room looked a lot better than ours with a lovely big window and lots of space. Ours was a little dismal and depressing so maybe we were just unfortunate but worth bearing in mind for anyone wanting to book here.
The reception staff were pleasant enough but not quite as ebulliently helpful as the experiences we had had elsewhere in California.
At least the price included breakfast which made it a little more bearable. The breakfast was plentiful if a little basic.
The situation of the hotel is great if you want to visit the Golden Gate Park as it is right near the entrance but it is a little out of the way for other attractions (though there is a great bus service that gets you into the centre within about 15 minutes).
Would I stay there again? No but that doesn't mean that it might not appeal to other people!
