I recently stayed at the Cornell Hotel (Dec 31 through Jan 12). I could not have been more at home in the big city, with the simple but filling daily breakfasts included in the room rate, the friendly and helpful room staff, the concierge support of the front desk, and the gourmet prix-fixe meals of the Jeanne D'arc restaurant on the lower level of the facility. The entire hotel/restaurant would easily qualify as a French art museum. Each floor is a tribute to a different French artist. I was on the Gauguin floor with wonderful prints hanging everywhere. The historic artifacts and tapestries in the restaurant would takes hours to totally review. Located a block from Nob Hill, you will quickly get used to walking hllls. However, the Cable Car stops just a few feet away and the views of the city are wonderful. The "small" room which I occupied was quite adorable and sufficient for one person. I would recommend something larger for two or more guests.
