Altho it looks and sounds like you may be in Paris you are actually at the wonderful small hotel on Bush Street built in 1910 and has been beautifully updated. The Cornell Hotel is run by a family originally from France and they brought the music, atmosphere and charm to us here in America. A generous breakfast is served every morning by a delighful staff in a dining room that you will not see anywhere else in the world.
It is within walking distance (3 blocks) to Union Square and the Powell Street cable car is just at the corner. Altho close to all the hubub the rooms are quiet and comfortable.
When we were waiting for shuttle to the airport the owner sat down to chat with us. I mentioned not seeing their dog "Noel" so he was sent out to greet us. I have stayed there many times and would recommend to any good friend. It is a treat everytime.
