“Comfort + Quiet + Location = Wonderful”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

I highly recommend this sister hotel to the King George. It's a well-maintained, pretty boutique hotel with decent-sized rooms. They have a professional and friendly staff - Ann was especially helpful when we needed a room on short notice. Sounds cliche, but the front desk staff was truly personable and happy to chat and offer help.

I appreciated the things provided for comfort and convenience like bottled water in the room, an oscillating fan, lots of pillows on the bed, good light in the room, bathrobes and in-room safe. The bed was very comfortable - slept like a log every night. The rooms may not have a view but I would trade a good night's sleep in quiet (unlike some of the city's hotels without air conditioning) for a view any night! It's what we paid for and got.

The perks made the stay even more enjoyable: a better-than-typical continental breakfast with good coffee, wine and cheese in the evenings and cookies in the afternoon in the nice little sitting rooms.

Location is primo - right off Union Square, short walking distance to shops, restaurants, cable car stop, BART station and good people-watching.

This little hotel is in the heart of San Francisco! Conveniently located in the middle of everywhere! We stayed in room 506 which is convenient as they have breakfast with delicious treats and varied spread. In the afternoons the have wine, cheese, nuts and more! The only drawback is two doors in the bathroom, where they only need one. Also room 506 has no view only to the air handlers, you will have a gentle hum in the evenings. I would certainly stay at the Inn again! Every staff member was exceptional!

I booked at the Inn because of it's location and the good reviews on Tripadvisor.
Let me get to the positive first.
The hotel is extremely clean both floors and rooms. The whole staff is nice and welcoming which makes a huge difference. The breakfast is small but tasty and there are newspapers as well as bottles of free water in the room.
I would definatly visit again.
As for the negative I think it is a little too expensive compared to other hotels with bigger rooms and a more convenient valet service. Getting there with no spot to park is just a hassle.
I also wish there was a fridge in the room.
That's my honest review.

This was an unexpected gem in the City. I originally was supposed to be at another hotel but due to overbooking ended up here. That is the best mistake that ever happened. My room was appointed wonderfully and the bed was fabulous. The nice touch of water delivered to the room was sweet and the wine and cheese reception was the BOMB! The pampering continued with warm delicious cookies at bedtime and then to awake to a fabulous breakfast spread?....Oh my!

The entire staff from the hotel manager to the front desk to the housekeeping were always welcoming and offering to do anything they could to make me comfortable. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you for a most memorable time.

The Inn has a small town feel in the heart of San Francisco. We were greeted by the inn keeper who was very friendly and helpful. He pulled out a map and showed us areas we should check out, and showed us where we can get public transportation. The Inn was conveniently located to shopping, to the Market Street F-line for transportation, and we could easily walk to many places.

Though a little small, the room was very clean and quiet. Our one complaint is that there was no air conditioning or central air circulation. Luckily the weather was mild, but the room did still get warm and stuffy. The room did have a ceiling fan, which provided some air circulation.

The continental breakfast was lovely. It was so nice to not have to worry about going out to find breakfast each morning. And the wine tasting in the evening was a nice perk.

We stayed at the Inn beginning of April and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect. Easy access to all the sites to see and close to the cable cars and other public transportation. The daily wine and cheese was wonderful! Wayne was great and provided excellent recommendations for Sonoma. Highly recommend this hotel!

My husband and I went to San Francisco for the first time. We found the hotel on Trip Advisor. We had a great stay! Nothing to complain about at all. The hotel was lovely, great location. great friendly and helpful staff, great house keeping. The room was very nice and big. The wine hour each evening was great. We met some lovely people there. We booked the parking package, which was great with valet parking. We would love to stay there again!
