Very well renovated hotel, well located. Perfect for business as well as leisure.
I went to San Fran with my husband for a few nights to explore the city. When I first walked in, the first this I noticed was the elegant wood paneling in the ceiling of the lobby; the interior was amazing, from the lobby to our room. Everything was clean. We checked in and the staff was welcoming. We got a free bag filled with some goodies. I noted it was our anniversary when I booked this hotel and they warmly congratulated us and even upgraded our room at no extra cost. There was champagne in the room as well. It was convenient that there was a restaurant connected to the hotel, they partnered with them so that the restaurant could actually deliver food to your room like room service.
I didn’t like the subpar view we had from our room. And the location isn’t the best. If you walk down the block, you’ll see an alley filled with the homeless doing questionable activities. I’m no stranger to New York so this kind of scene is not too shocking to me. If you are not comfortable with this, then it might be better to find a different hotel. But keep in mind that SF has many homeless community scattered throughout the city. Also it was a bit expensive compared to other hotels I’ve stayed at but I think this is the average price for SF.
The location of the hotel is great if you wish to walk around and explore the city. Major car rental companies are nearby as are public transportation stops (only a few blocks away). We were lucky to be upgraded to a better room which really made a difference as this was our last stop before heading back home. The room we got was spacious and very well equipped. Overall the hotel was very clean and quiet although located next to a busy street.
The breakfast at the hotel restaurant was not quite in line with the rest of the hotel experience.
Hotel was on the smaller side, boutique style so it was easy to get to our room. There is a restaurant right at the lobby level called Jaspers with great food and reasonable prices. Staff was friendly, very imformative and ready to help.
Roms were a little on the small side. No where to put your suitcase to unpack. Tried taking pictures out the window of the view but the windows were quite dirty. Also, location even though it is 2 blocks from Union Square there are many homeless around.
The staff were great, very helpful
No coffee pot in the room, communal coffee area in the lobby though
