This is a quirky hotel in the Union Square area of San Francisco. The room itself was nice, but I have to lodge my primary complaint about this hotel first - I think this was perhaps the smallest hotel bathroom I've ever been in. I understand that the building is historic, but the bathroom is so cramped, you can barely move around while in there. The bathtub is quite old and needs replacing. I felt inclined to wear flip flops while showering if you catch my drift. The mini bar was, well, I'm still looking for it.....
Now having said that, the rest of the room was great, with lovely views of the city. The Starlight Room on the 21st floor made for a fun birthday celebration with friends on Friday night, although when we returned on Saturday night, the music and crowd just weren't our scene. The drinks at the lobby bar and Starlight room were also excellent. We did the drag queen brunch, which for the price, is just ok. Frankly, I've seen better drag shows and drag brunches in DC. I'd say skip this. The staff were also very accommodating and friendly.
