The entrance to the hotel is a little hidden, we walked right by it until we looked up and saw the sign at the top.
Like what many reviewers have mentioned, the location is centrally located on Powell street right in front of the cable car line and near the BART.
Opposite of the hotel is Uniqlo and a Walgreens, at the corner of the street is H & M.
We booked a Deluxe room and had the option of a courtyard facing room or a street facing room. We picked the street facing room for a direct view of the Uniqlo bright lights and the cable cars moving below on the street. We had a room on the 3rd floor and didn't have trouble sleeping at night although during the day, the room can get a little noisy if there's loud honking on the street. The bells of the cable cars can be heard too. Good place to people watch if that's your thing.
The conceirge was helpful with food and tour recommendations. The front desk staff too were friendly and helpful.
Overall, I liked the general ambiance of the hotel (there were art pieces scattered around the hallways). Yes, the hallways were a bit dark but it fits in with their concept, the hotel is well decorated I would definitely stay here again.
