We are a family of four (kids are 13 and 10) and we stayed here for 4 nights in August. Before booking we found it hard to find a decent looking hotel in SF and finally booked this through the British Airways website.
We got the BART from SF airport and then it was about a 10 minute walk to the hotel.
Location: in a word amazing! I don't think we could have picked anywhere better. Union Square is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. You are also right in the heart of the shopping district and close to Macy's, Westfield, Walgreen's (handy for drinks, snacks and lovely fresh fruit) and all the other shops. We walked to most places, but did take the tram to Fishermans Wharf. We also had tickets for baseball and walked down to the AT&T stadium, which took us about 20 minutes.
Our room: we were in a room with 2 queen beds in the old part of the hotel. The beds were lovely and comfy. The room itself was quite small with not too much space for our clothes. We also had no view at all, just a frosted window that faced a wall. However, we don't go to hotels to sit in the room, so it was fine for what we needed.
Breakfast: we had breakfast for 2 included in our price. We were given vouchers, so we just used them for the whole family until they ran out. The breakfast was very nice and service was good. We also ate dinner in the hotel one evening and that was very nice. Again, the service was excellent.
If we were going back to SF we would definitely stay here again.
