Fair 4.0
This was a below average hotel. Old and small. It has been refurbished but not at all what we expected or the pictures suggested. Far too expensive for what you get.

Nice hotel. Good service. Near Tenderloin which is sometimes edgy. Restaurant average.

A hidden gem centrally located within walking distance of Union Square and a short taxi ride from Fisherman’s Wharf and close to restaurants.

Exceptional 10.0
Nice Clean, Friendly Hotel very close to everything in the heart of San Francisco. We stayed on the 6th floor and it was very quite for a good nights sleep. One negative comment is the room Safe a) Its Positioned above the Waldrobe even with my height I could not see in it wthout standing on a chair. b) We have stayed in 4 Hotels in the USA this trip. This is the first Safe my Laptop would not fit in.

Fair 4.0
The property was small but unique. I was disappointed to be charged an additional $29 per night on dept for amenities. I was advised amenities were for access to the gym, WiFi and coffee in the foyer. (No in room coffee). I would expect these to be included in room rate.

Fair 4.0
It was expensive for what I got: the room was not cool-chic dated, it was passé unfashionable. Worst of all, the plumbing to the hot water system wasn't working properly, and on both days I had to call the maintenance man to fix the problem. To be fair to the hotel, they attended to this quickly; but still I could imagine it would be far more awkward if I was not a single man! If I return to San Francisco, I will stay at a major chain, and avoid boutique.
CD, au2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good location but I thought the hotel was over priced for the age of the building and the standard of the room. Enjoyed my stay but would try a hotel nearby for value next time..
au1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
High quality hotel at a great price. Didn’t get to experience many of the amenities but the location and the comfort, spaciousness and cleanliness was great. Would have given it top marks but for a false charge for an in room movie, this was resolved in the end by the on site manager with relative ease but nonetheless put a spoiler on the whole experience. Similarly, the adjacent cafe bar also double charged me which was much more painful to resolve. Would definitely stay there again.
