I recently stayed here 3 nights for business and had a great experience. I arrived early and the room was not ready however the concierge immediately assisted with bag check so I could walk around and enjoy the day while waiting. The room was a king bed suite that had been newly renovated and very nice for a historic hotel. There is a hosted happy hour each evening, which is a very nice amenity. This hotel is located near Union Square and is close to nice restaurants, shopping, a cable car stop and Chinatown. The door man was very helpful locating cabs and a car service for the airport travel. My meeting didn't end until noon and I asked and was immediately offered late checkout [1 pm] gratis. I have stayed at many other hotels in San Francisco and this was one of the best hotels recently.
