The Cornell is a couple of blocks from Union Square, which means that it is quieter than places closer to the action. Nob Hill is just another few blocks away as is Chinatown. I stayed in a room with two double beds. The room was very simple and fairly small, but had a large closet and bathroom. The building is old, but the halls and rooms are decorated nicely. Service was a little spotty: maid service was missed our first day, and we had to ask for toilet paper. On the other hand, we had no problem leaving our bags for a full day before our red eye flight in the evening. Breakfast was decent with a choice of eggs and toast or French Toast. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
