No air conditioning and the windows didn't have screens so couldn't leave the windows open either so it was hot but did have a ceiling fan and an additional table top fan as well which helped. Room was quite small but good location, trolley right outside the door, great bathtub and nice toiletries provided. Breakfast was pricy at $18 each and valet parking was $49 plus tax which made the overall cost about $350 for one night.

I really enjoyed staying in this hotel, it has that old vintage feel. The staff was courteous there was no AC but we only used the room for sleeping and bathing the windows were big allowing the breeze to flow. The room was clean nice comfortable bed.

We liked the very comfortable bed as well as the old but fine appointments of the bathroom. We liked the fresh air through open windows. We would have liked a sightly larger room.

The hotel is older so it's small but that's kind of cool to be honest. The stairwell is pretty interesting and there's a fire escape... Something I'd never actually seen in a building I've been in before. Our room was so small but honestly we didn't need it to be any bigger

The location was excellent...across from Union Square and right on the cable car route. The staff was excellent and most helpful. The lobby was comfortable and coffee and cold water always available. It's our go to place in SF from now on..
