This is a lovely hotel with romance and charm matched with modern amenities. The literary theme is very appealing, and the onsite Library Bar is quaint and inviting. They offer a free glass of wine in the evening, and there was even live entertainment one night. What a delight! I checked in very late in the evening and although the valet was closed, the helpful gentleman at the front desk directed me to a garage just down the block which was even cheaper than the hotel parking. Every employee I interacted with was kind and helpful. My room was extremely clean, with full modern amenities - large flatscreen TV, hair dryer, coffee maker, free wi-fi, etc. My room was very quiet, even though it was near the elevator (never heard it). For those used to large hotel chains, you would consider the room a bit small (I live in a one-bedroom in NYC, so "small" is relative to me). But I found it perfect for my needs and extremely comfortable and charming. I even had enough room to work out. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, and a 24 hour Walgreens right on the corner. Super convenient location. If (hopefully when) I return to SF, I will definitely stay at this hotel again! Thanks Hotel Rex for a lovely stay!

We stayed at this hotel on 11/12-11/15. I was surprised how comfortable the bed was. The room is smallish, but not claustrophobic. The decor is eclectic, and a little worn, but interesting - cool art on the walls, hand-painted lamp shades, etc. Although our room faced the street, it was pretty quiet. There's also a hotel bar, with a one free drink per guest happy hour every day. And, if you didn't already know this, the hotel has a mascot, a sweet old pug named Max. He is very popular with the guests, even has his own Facebook page. San Francisco is not a cheap town. We felt Hotel Rex was a good value, especially considering the nice neighborhood (financial district). The hotel isn't cookie cutter - it has character, just like the city.

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Hotel Rex for 4 nights. This boutique hotel is great! Although it is located in the heart of the city, you feel the stresses of city life melt away as soon as you walk through the doors. The lobby is dimly lit with a 1940's decor, bringing you back to simpler times. The pug sleeping in one of the lobby chairs is a testament to the lobby's soothing feel. The staff could not have been more pleasant either. They are all very helpful, knowledgeable, and excited to recommend great places in their city. They even have free bikes you can use to explore the city. The hotel is also much cheaper than the big name hotels in the surrounding area, making it even more appealing. I had never been to a boutique hotel before, but it appears to offer everything that any 4-star hotel would offer plus a little more personal attention. We had an excellent stay!
