This hotel is in a great location, Union Square is full of shops and restaurants. The Cable cars run right in front of the hotel. The rooms are large,clean and well kept. The bathrooms are TINY, with no counterspace, and terrible water pressure.The restaurant is very good and VERY busy. The hotel staff is not at all friendly-except the men hailing cabs in front, they are extremely nice! At check-in I felt as though I was bothering the desk person. I also had local questions twice, once the concierge seemed bothered by everyones questions. There was no concierge the second time and the desk clerk was very abrupt. I believe their job is to assist guests.
