I went to San Francisco on business and needed a reasonably priced place to stay near Union Square. Hotel Vertigo fit the bill - it's decor is not to my taste (a bit too "sterile modern") but I won't hold that against them. The bed was very comfortable, the room was spotless, there is a flat screen TV and upscale bathroom with a rain type shower-head. (No bathtub).
The front desk staff person was terrific - quickly took care of one minor problem that happens on occasion in the summer in SF. She changed my room when the one assigned was bathed in hot sunlight (did I mention there is no air conditioning in most SF hotels - because it rarely gets hot enough to need it). The replacement room was on the back of the building - very quiet and cool.
My only real gripe is a small one. Nice desk, good desk chair and free internet - which is all great - but no desk lamp! Just a useless light way up in the ceiling and bedside lamps that I couldn't figure out how to turn on (seriously).
