We spent 4 nights here in September while on Honeymoon and I have mixed feelings regarding the hotel. Check in was simple reception looked very nice. The hotel as some say has a quirky feel more than boutique and I felt the lighting in the corridors was like being on a funfair ride.
The room we were given was located on the 2nd floor at the front of the hotel. The noise fro the street hit you as you walked in. This was not helped by the shop opposite being refurbished so building wrk went on 24hrs a day. Also I found it a little disconcerting to open the curtains to see all the diners in the restaurant opposite having a view into the room. Saying this I actually enjoyed opening the windows and watching one of San Francisco's busiest streets in action. The shop opposite has now been completed so you won't have cranes and builders at all hours. You will however experience a cacophony of noise all night. The room has no double glazing either. The worst noise is the concierge blowing his whistle to attract taxi's.
The room and bathroom were both compact but did the job. Although the stupid bed has metal legs that protrude from the end. Even with the rubbish foam that had been taped to them, they were a source of much swearing from stubbing toes. No aircon in the room just a fan.
The free wine hour each evening was a nice touch and we enjoyed a glass or two with the guitarist.
We did not get our toiletries replenished until I asked for it but the staff were quick to sort this when I did.
Location is what this place is about. Cable car 2 min walk, union square 2 blocks away. metro 2 min away. It's a perfect location for a city break. Right in the heart of everything
In a room so small try and get beds with legs underneath and utilise the space a little better. Secondary double glazing would help on the front. Free Tea & Coffee plus wine hour a nice touch. Friendly, helpful staff. I was slightly disappointed to here the couple in front of us at reception were on a 1st anniversary & got a suite upgrade and bottle of champagne. Our honeymoon, we got nothing.
The staff seemed surprised that the shop fitting work across the road was disturbing people. Strange seeing as at times it closed the whole road off whilst the crane hauled stuff in & builders were onsite 24hrs.
