Yes, the area is a bit dodgy, but the hotel is wonderful once inside. The lobby is elegant and gorgeous with beamed ceiling and large chandeliers. Elevators are small as one would expect in an older building, but the hallways are enormous. Rooms are also on the small side. In our room, the closet and bathroom were the same size meaning one was generous and the other as ridiculous. My tall husband could not stand in front of the sink with the door closed. Toiletries were high-quality. Despite the noise of Market Street, at night the hotel was very quiet and we slept well. I loved the bed and did not want to get up in the mornings. My husband thought it was too soft.
Bonus points for having a Starbucks right in the hotel. But even more demerits for charging $35/night to park. And we still paid a relatively high price for the convenient downtown location ($186 before taxes I think) so value was only so-so.
