Let's start by saying this is not a cheap hotel. At nearly $300 a night (tax inc) you surely should bring high expectations. We did, and this hotel did not disappoint. First of all, the location. For us this was a great discovery. We loved walking around the neighbourhood looking at the beautiful mansions. It felt really good and we enjoyed the area (albeit quite tough to walk anywhere given the steep hills so common in this city). The room itself was very nice, classic style, ours was in what seemed like a lower ground floor but the nice flower arrangements outside of the window made it look like a little patio. Everything was clean and highly customized, so the premium feel was present throughout. Parking was never an issue, finding a place was easy and the staff looked after your car to ensure you don't get a ticket. The wine tastings in the middle of the afternoon are a nice classy touch. Breakfast could probably be improved, but nothing alarming. Staff was welcoming and helpful at all times, and the sanwich selection for room service, although short, is quite yummy. Is this SF's best hotel? Can't really say, but is one that definitely raises the bar
