My husband and I spent 2 nights here in October and we were thoroughly impressed. The staff in the hotel and the restaurant were fabulous! The room was small but the unique decor (so different from the cookie cutter hotel fare of most establishments) made it comfy cozy. The bed was very comfortable and the leopard print bathrobes made us laugh; we enjoyed using them.
For those travelling with pets this hotel is beyond pet friendly, they are pet lovers! I can't imagine there being a better place to stay with a Pet in San Francisco. For those who love animals but aren't travelling with one, you can get a pet goldfish in your room for the duration of your stay, they'll even feed it for you. :)
The hotel decor is fascinating and there is something to catch your interest everywhere you look. The evening cocktail party with free wine was a real treat and gave us an opportunity to meet and chat with other guests. The location was excellent, just remember to turn right and not left when you go out the front door, the right goes toward Union Square and left leads to a rather sketchy area of town. There are a few panhandlers in the area but it is still a fabulous location, so close to Union Square, the trolley stop etc.
I would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to friends.
