The hotels I typically stay at in San Francisco were either booked or too expensive for my last trip so I ended up here, and I wasn't disappointed. At first I was a bit afraid of the decor--it's English country meets Midwest chintz and a bit busy for my taste--but I got used to it. Our room was spacious by San Fran standards but had a cozy feel, particularly with the fireplace, which we needed because it was cold and rainy during the entire trip. We had a room on the top floor at the back of the hotel, and it was nice and quiet. We had none of the problems with wifi that others have mentioned. Great (and free) signal at all times. We also loved the "library room" on the ground floor, where my daughter sat by the fire in a comfy chair and did her homework. We had a toilet issue on the first night of our stay, but it was quickly remedied. The location is a few blocks away from Union Square (up a bit of a hill), and there are a lot of nice neighborhood restaurant choices close by. All in all, a great place to stay if you don't mind a chintzy decor and don't want a big hotel experience. Well worth the price given the amenities.
