The building is old. Love the history. But the decor is v modern and romantic. The staff was genuine and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. I would absolutely stay here again. Felt extremely at home here.

Very quite inside. Slept so good. Very clean. Cold AC. Wanted a fan for noise but they didn’t have one. Wasn’t a big deal. Friendly staff but some of them had accent hard to understand but that’s every you go. Such a diversity of people. Hot water worked all the time. Super clean towels. They had large bottles of shampoo and body soap and conditioner. Everything I needed to feel clean. Stepped out and your in San Fransisco. Food every where. Transportation every where. Good hotel.

Staff was always warm and welcoming. Room and common areas seemed a bit shabby. Persistent funny smell on our floor. Very noisy for rooms facing street. Only free refreshments in lobby were apples and water. No complimentary coffee or breakfast items.

Nice boutique hotel

Near union square, near a lot of places to visit, you can eat there ,or there a lot of good,but expensive food places around.it is a good hotel for its money. California adds a lot of taxes added on so beware.

The hotel’s central location, inside the shopping area, is the best. The hotel, as most of the hotels in San Francisco, are renovated buildings from several decates ago. The level of craftshipment and detail oriented quality from the renovation at this hotel is just okay. The room pictures are misleading, at least at the room we stayed. There were no window curtains (decorative), and the shower curtain tube was rusty. The front desk staff was just okay, not rude but not especially welcoming every time we returned to our rooms. We could sleep well during our staying, but be careful if you bring kids and have neighbors making sex, since you could hear everything. It was an okay stay, but no necessary recommending it.

Website misleading - this place is nothing more than an expensive flop house - no restaurant, no bar, cheap towels, no water pressure in shower, elevators didn’t work. Cheap.
