The hotel is undergoing renovations -- so it's a bit hard to tell about many of the features, but the location is simply great. Very safe; close to Union Square and right next to the cable cars and Starbucks! I would not say it's a 4-star hotel, perhaps a 3.5 star. It felt more like a business hotel. I can say that my room, which had not yet been updated, was perfectly fine. When I check in, I asked for a quiet room ... and had upgraded to a higher floor (21st) and it was amazingly QUIET and had a lovely view. I didn't hear one other sound when I was in the room. That was pretty important to me, so I'd say it was a perfectly fine stay in a great city.

i booked this hotel based on the other reviews on this site.. i think they must have been written by employ's the hotel or it's management. there is a serious disconnect with the reality of the hotel and what i perceived to be the hotel i was staying at from the reviews. the hotel is a couple blocks from union square, but there are tons of hotels all around here that seem nicer i wish i was staying there.. the room is not what is shown in the picture. it's basic holiday inn, no mini bar, generic everything. nothing special.. but that would have been alright. there is no public transport outside the hotel as was claimed, i also waited for over 40 min to get a cab. the hotel is currently under construction which is not mentioned anywhere on traveloctity. so there is loud noise starting at 9 am. the first night i called to ask about a vending machine and was told to go across the hall. i ended up going to six floors! none of the soda machines worked, some had out of order signs some did not. it was surreal. i ended up leaving the hotel and going to a drug store. the internet is not wireless and not free. the hotel staff tries to be nice but they know they are running some sort of scam here and seem used to complainants. worsr of all.. last night half the hotel lost hotel lost power.. luckily my room did not but from 10- 11:45 or so there were enginners using power tools trying to fix the problem.. on a sunday night.. power tools.. for the price you pay a night. do not stay here. i have never written a review.. but i hate this hotel .

An above average room for the purpose of a weekend getaway. Very secure/safe building. Gracious and friendly staff. Excellent location for exploring Union Square. Parking is 46 dollars per day. Outrageous. Wireless is 9.95 per day, should be a free service, it's 2008.

Wow, what a great stay at a great price! Hotel is one block north of Union Square, along the historic Cable Car route. Clean and professional, the beds are comfortable, and the rooms are well appointed. The view is incredible, regardless of which side of the hotel you are on, and the Concierge was more than willing to answer our questions and provided greatly reduced tickets for some of the tours. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to SF. The room's decor and feel is similar to most 4/5-star hotels with a nice flare of old SF style. Large rooms with plenty of space. Note: There is no fitness facility - hasn't been for some time, but SF is actually a very close-nit city and you can walk almost anywhere within minutes for your fitness. Also, public transportation is very cheap and convenient, and parking anywhere in SF is very expensive. (including all hotels)

Chose this hotel because of the location, and closeness to cable car. After 2 weeks driving the PCH, we were expecting a really small room in the city. From the doorman to the desk staff, we were greeted warmly. We were totally unprepared for the size of the room. It was much larger than we had expected. The bathroom was very nice, very modern, very clean. We even had a nice view from our window. The staff was very helpful in suggesting a taxi as better than the shuttle to the airport. When I asked the night before checkout of they would print my boarding passes, they happily did it for us. The beds and bedding were of good quality. When we called for a bellman to take our luggage down, he was at the door really, really quickly. Our only complaint was the cost of the parking - $40 a day! I know that is about average. We decided to take the rental back early since we didn't need it, and save the 40 bucks a day. We do feel they charged us quite a bit for the hour they had the car before we made that decision. We only used the restaurant on the morning of check out for quick take out toast. The location can't be beat, and we got such a super rate, we were very happy. Again, the room and bath were really large compared to what it could have been. If you have read reviews of other hotels, you will see what I mean.
