Hotel Zelos San Francisco, a Viceroy Urban Retreat8.6/10 ratingout of 6 reviewsSoMa · $194 avg price/ night
I spent a week at Hotel Zelos, and had a great stay. The staff was always super-friendly at all hours of the day, the rooms were clean and comfy, and the location was pretty convenient. There are nearby grocery/convenience stores, restaurants, and good proximity to the Embarcadero for waterfront runs. The rooms were pretty "stock" hotel rooms, but they were clean, the linens and towels were good quality, and the bed was nice. If you're sensitive to noise, I had a room over the front entrance, and you could definitely hear traffic and sirens, but I think that's just part of staying in a dense city. Definitely nothing the hotel can really do much about! I would have liked breakfast hours at the restaurant (7-10) to start a little earlier, but the one meal I ate there was tasty (if a bit expensive). Overall, I had a great stay, and would happily return on a future visit.
