I was stranded in San Fran due to a late incoming flight so I called h-t--s.com and when I found Hilton and Marriott booked they suggested this hotel. Although it is somewhat on the edge where you need to be careful in which direction you walk at night it is no different in that respect from the Hilton one block north and at a much cheaper rate. You don't go to SanFran to spend most if your time in a hotel room so this hotel is quaint and only a block away from Powell where you can get the street car and also close to tons of shopping. Staff were very friendly and rooms were tidy and they even supplied toothpaste which normally doesn't come unless you ask. They even had a complimentary Breathe Right on the nightstand. Outside was somewhat noisy but that is par for the course unless you are in a tall 30+ story hotel. I would recommend this for the young and adventurous with some street savy and a budget but perhaps not to more conservative and narrow-minded individuals who don't get out much.
