Right from check-in, staying at the Hotel Carlton was a San Francisco treat. The reception desk staff was very friendly and courteous and offered great advice. The decor is very eclectic borrowing mainly from a mix of Asian cultures. The room, while facing a side driveway and another building, was quite quiet and was very comfortable. There was a short power outage during our stay caused by an underground fire downtown on Friday the 13th but this did not affect us as much as it did other parts of downtown. Saha was open for breakfast despite the outage and it was quite good. The wine tastings in the late afternoons were a treat and led to some spirited conversations with interesting European and U.S. travellers (Wendy - the Canadian theatre director to watch out for is Robert Lepage). If you are taking the Bart from SFO, get off at Embarcadero and take the #2 bus which goes down Sutter, hotel is near Post.
