In many ways, the Cornell Hotel de France did feel like a Paris stay. The hotel is located in a busy but beautiful part of the city, an easy walk to Union Square and just off the Powell Street Car line. The decor is a bit older but it all feels comfortable, and everything is very clean. Our room was quite large, light and airy, and although the room faced Bush Street, we were never disturbed by any traffic noise. Unfortunately the hotel also has a few less enticing aspects of some French hotels: inside of bathtubs with pealing paint, two tiny pillows, and our greatest disappointment for a US hotel: no fitted bottom sheet for a queen bed (tiny mattress pad and small sheet made for uncomfortable night sleep). A lovely manager on duty, but after the fifth time she reminded us to "lock your door" we started to feel a bit less comfortable. Breakfast was quite reasonable (very American but a croissant would have been a welcome treat), and we found the restaurant setting to be truly beautiful. Beware of the sweet breakfast server - each morning she served us coffee as she ran to the next table, and most of the time the coffee didn't actually reach our cups!
