“Very Nice Rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2006

We only spent 1 night at this hotel but it was memorable.

The room had a great view of Coit Tower, the bed was very comfortable, the furniture was very nice, the towels were great, etc.

Parking is $42/day + tax but heh, it's San Francisco.

We will stay here again.

The hotel itself is quite nice- the lobby is lovely, the rooms are clean and new and have very comfortable beds. The gym is also brand new and is fully stocked with new equiptment. It too is spotless.
The location was great for us, we walked everywhere, although we were in bed early. It was easy to get around, but we did have problems finding a place for a quick inexpensive breakfast.
The only problem with this hotel is that around 2 in the morning it got very very loud. Either there was a party both nights, or the bars were letting out- it was like the people were inside our room. We put the AC on to try to drown out the noise. This alone would make me hesitate to stay here again.

The newly renovated room is chic; the room has free Crabtree & Evelyn products (shampoo, rinse, etc.) and the bedding was very comfortable. Even the restaurant food is much better than what you'd expect from a hotel restaurant. When we went they had live vocal Jazz at the bar which set the right ambience. And very friendly service!!! The building itself looks quite run down from the outside but you'll be amazed at how new and comfortable it is inside.

I booked this hotel via priceline. I read the review from this site and I realized that there are room that I should be avoid (xx00, xx01), those room are VERY, VERY small compare to the other rooms (since they are next to the elevator & ice/vending machine, u will be hearing noises ALL night long). It is always a good idea to call a few days ahead to let them know ur preference for the room and usually they will try to accomodate ur request. There is no free internet in the room but you can definitely use it in the lobby. I heard some funny conversation of some customers complained that they got the room where it has only one bed and its too small for 2 guys to even slept next to each other (I did walk by the room one day while they are doing house keeping..u get like a full size bed or smaller). Its so funny. Most of the front desk staffs are friendly except this black hair hispanic lady in glass - she's mean to the customers! be aware!!! She doesn't let ppl have their choices, she does whatever she wants to people .. so get away from her ASAP when u checked in.

The location is good. Its not the best (not close to the bart station) but its OK to walk a few blocks. I walked myself to the hotel when I checked in , and I have also walked around midnight to go to 7-11 to get some food, the area is not too bad but u know, SF is full of beggers, just say NO. I like the fact that its right next to the chinatown, you can find cheap chiense foods right next to ur hotel, for less.

The Concierge recommended the CityView Restaurant for dimsum, its nice for tourist but if u want authentic chinese food (dim sum), I think Oakland have better food. For those who likes Fisherman's wharf, taking bus 15 is a very convient choice since its not as crowded as streetcar (god its a nightmare to ride on street car).

I had a room in 21st Floor, Overlooking the bay, away from the elevator, its very clean, very nice. I liked the fact that they used the Crabtree & Evelyn soaps (smells better than Aveda!) and their bed is VERY comfortable, better than the bed that i had at Sherton hotel in Vancouver. The AC has individ. climet control and its very quiet (brand new). Unlike the previous review, I think the chair is nice even tho it does has an IKEA feel, but I think its more Crate&Barrel Style to me (at least its solid wood furniture) and TV does have some good channels, Free HBOs for those who want to watch TV in teh room! The only thing is that u get to hear siren and bus sounds late at night (its SF, u know, bars everywhere). Its amazing that I can actally hear them on the 21st floor.
The gym is VERY nice too, its located on the 5th floor and the equipment is brand new (the hotel was completely remodeled and reopened on Jan 2006). The only thing that I don't like is that they shut down the rooftop pool, oh wells no big deal since I don't stay in my hotel 24/7.

I think if u want to stay at this hotel, you should definitely try to book on priceline since when I checked in, there are 5+ people in the line holding the receipt from priceline! Its a great deal for a nice hotel in SF!

We enjoyed a Saturday night stay and had a wonderful experience. Nice lobby. The clerk at check in was friendly and efficient and went to the effort of searching for the room upgrade we asked for. Our room looked dead-on at Coit Tower with partial bay views. Room was extremely clean and decent-sized although the bathroom was small. Furnishings and decor appeared to be in excellent condition, not worn out or tired looking at all. Noise in other rooms and the hallways was pretty much non-existent (although there was some construction going on next door that resulted in a generator going off at 6am on Sunday morning!). Sunday morning we had an awesome breakfast in the hotel restaurant - fairly reasonable at $35 for 2.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for either a business or a leisure traveler, although simply due to the relatively small size of a standard room it probably wouldn't be the ideal hotel for any longer than a couple of nights.

The good:
1. Friendly staff at check-in
2. nice view of Telegraph Hill, and Washington Square area and Coit Tower
3. It's newly redone.
4. Good valet service and very friendly and polite.
5. A great king bed and v. good llinens. Good towels in the bathroom.
6. Free wi-fi in the lobby area. Works good too.
7. New, fast, elevators. One slight catch is that you have to swipe your room keycard before you push the floor button or it doesn't accept your push. The price of 9/11.

The Bad:
1. Noisy outside. Drunks all over the place when the bars close.
2. Five in the afternoon and unable to get clean towels. They ran out(??)
3. Generally overpriced. Want to spend $35 on breakfast?

The Ugly:
1. Parking will be about $100 for two nights (we're still here as I write this). SF is always expensive, but this is out of line.

In summary:
I got this room for $90 on Priceline. Good deal for that price. If I had paid rack rate or anything like it, I'd really be sore. This is a made over Holiday Inn, and looks like it. The rooms are furnished with IKEA-level stuff. Nice for a young person's apartment, but not for a 4 star hotel. Popcorn (acuostical) ceiling -- they just couldn't spend the $$ to take this out and it looks really dated and ugly. We had stayed here when it was a Hol. Inn, and that's about the level of hotel it still is--only more expensive. Interesting, Hilton is trying to lose the Chinatown identification. Was the Holiday Inn Chinatown -- now the Hilton Financial District. Never mind that all the businesses outsite the hotel have their sineage in Chinese. This place only makes sense at under $100 and it's a good value for that.

I liked location, I liked the room, I had problems with the door key that they weren't able to fix and wouldn't give me an upgrade. Other than that it was fine.
