“Good value in a good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

I was able to book a "queen suite" (two queen beds and a wet bar), for two nights at a very good rate. Terrific location on Post Street, near Union Square Comfortable, spacious room, very clean, and wine was offered in the lobby each afternoon. Limited breakfast, from what i could tell, but we didn't try it. I would definitely recommend this hotel as a good, budget find near Union Square.

Older hotel that could use some updating.very hard to sleep at night,uncomfortable beds and a lot of street noise (sirens,cars using horns etc).breakfast was limited and exactly the same pastries everyday,but better than nothing.staff were nice and helpful.good location,close walk to union square,cable car and bus stops.but at night felt a bit unsafe walking around.

This hotel definately offers a great experience for those on a budget.The foyer is loaded with character and complimentory wine and cheese for happy hour just adds to the ambience,giving travellers the chance to meet people from all parts of the world.The staff are extremely helpful and whilst the rooms could be renovated a little they were very clean.

...there was too much. We were on the top floor and the heat was up too high, a problem they admitted to and was being worked on but not solved in our visit. We needed to sleep with the windows open, and SF isn't a quiet town on the weekends. I'm presuming it's since been attended to.

The rooms were spacious and well fit, if a little dated. Everything was clean and quite satisfactory. The only down point was the very poorly managed breakfast. They need to take some care and set up a proper table or buffet, instead of a table in the middle of the room, paper plates and cups and plastic boxes of fruit.. might have been clean but it was a bit off-putting in display. They just need to learn to present better..

Room Tip: Try to avoid the front of the building as it's on a busy main road.

A group of friends and I went to San Francisco for a benefit. We found this to be a convenient place to have two or three grown folks to a room. The hotel looks like it used to be apartments, so the rooms are very spacious suites. It was great to have a kitchen so we could actually take home leftovers from the great meals we had. The living room had a comfortable murphy bed (where I stayed) while two others were in doubles in the bedroom. Bathroom was very spacious. We didn't have much interaction with the staff, but everyone seemed friendly. The four (rather than five) stars are because it is not my favorite location in town, but if your destinations are in Union Square or the Financial District or if you're here as a tourist, it is definitely convenient. We plan to stay here again when we go back for our 2012 girls' weekend!
