Hotel Stratford accommodated our stay during the Nike Women's Marathon in October 2012. With 25,000 runners at the starting line in Union Square we were in the center of all festivities. The hotel is centrally located to shopping, eating, sightseeing, transportation and cable cars. The hotel is older, but our room was very clean (deal breaker for me if the room is not clean). The location makes it a good place to crash for the night, although this is not a luxury suite. It has all you need for basic necessities. Parking is expensive, $30/night but that is expected in the city. It takes 20-30 min to get your car from valet, so planning is required if you venture out on a drive. They could improve on the desk staff and update the lobby in order to leave a good first impression. I wondered if the woman at the desk even owned a hairbrush! Overall, it is recommended as a place to sleep, but not ideal if you want to chill and relax in your room for long periods of time. There is no air conditioning, and the view from our room was of a neighboring exterior wall with pipes and the neighbor's bathroom. This property is great for location, great for cleanliness, OK for comfort, and so-so for personality.
