This was my 2nd visit to this hotel but the 1st since the remodel and name change. The location is very nearly perfect - walking distance to the financial district, chinatown and the Powell cable car line. The hotel is clean and comfortable and the staff is very friendly and helpful at every turn. My girlfriend has already asked to stay there again next year.

We have traveled to San Francisco many times and have stayed in different hotels every time. We loved this one! It is steps from the cable car line, union square, Lori's diner is on the corner, Dotties True Blue Cafe a few blocks away, banking and shopping around the corner. Easy to get to using the BART, and all forms of public transportation. The room was a quaint victorian style full of charm. We had the corner suite on the top floor with an excellent view of the intersection. The staff were more than helpful and very friendly. Remodeling on the upper suites was almost complete and redecorating is also almost finished. It was clean and taken care of. We would definitely stay here again and again.

If you are traveling to San Francisco to tour the city and sight see, then this hotel is definitely worth the stay. It is centrally located and well priced. The rooms are small but perfect if you?re planning to just sleep and get ready in it. The staff is very kind and helpful. There is cont. breakfast every morning and hour in the evenings. This hotel is also located 1 block from the cable car line on Powell and 2 blocks from the bus station. I highly recommend using the public transportation. It is very easy to get around the city and very cheap. The BART station is about 5 blocks from the hotel so there is no need to take a cab from the airport. Just hop on the BART. We had an awesome stay at the Cartwright and will most definitely stay here again. Oh yeah, there was some renovations going on during our stay but the noise didn't start till 9:30 am and was done by 5 pm. If you are out of your room during these hours you won't even know there is construction going on.

This was our first visit to San Francisco to see our son, so I wasn't sure about location or about hotels. I selected this based on location. I must say the location is perfect, not far from everything. The hotel personnel could not have been nicer, very helpful and friendly. They are remodeling during the week, but what they are doing, it's going to be even nicer, they are putting a fireplace in and making it handicapped accessible. We would definitely go back to this hotel on our next visit. We had the parlor suite with 4 adults and 1 child and we had plenty of room. Very nice hotel. Recommend it highly.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They took just a moment to explain the available evening wine and snack and breakfast for the next morning and who to ask if we needed anything at all.
The room was much much smaller than the average motel, but probably average for older city hotels and was actually sufficient. Everything about the room seemed clean and well, efficient.
There is a great deal of remodeling going on at the hotel though this didn't seem to cause any problems during our short stay. The building is a block off the Trolley line which is good and bad.
The location is excellent for getting around the city, but a bit noisy as the building is quite old.
Overall, the stay was great.
