“Good location, but just "okay" experience”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

I'll start off by saying that I had the smallest room in the history of hotel rooms. And that included a private bath. Sink was IN the room, no desk or end tables, alarm clock or closet. Not the cleanest room, either. But did its job and was relatively inexpensive. Apparently there are larger rooms, but I didn't get one.

So, how important is location to you? If you are wanting a downtown, close to everything including convention center activities this may be the hotel for you. The service was accommodating and in general it was very clean. The rooms are very small. If more than oone person is staying in the room you have to schedule movement around the room. No desk, no closet and the smallest Flat Screen TV I have seen outside a airline cabin. As most "downtown" hotels the street noise was high but you can expect that.

Great price, great room especially if you get a corner ones ( others are much smaller). Good transport links to SFO airport, off main shopping area and walkable to sea front. Safer then slightly further up Market St. Clean and comfortable. Would say it's good for all ages and travel experience for no fuss & no frills, but visually appealing, stay as a base not a destination hotel.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are bigger apparently. Some of the room are tiny.

We stayed here for 4 nights in April 2011. We loved this hotel. The rooms are a little on the small side but this is nothing to complain about. The location is great, the room was really well heated and the vintage feel of the hotel was something we loved. The free muffins and coffee in the morning really gave us some fuel for sightseeing before lunch. And compared to the price of other hotels in the region the price was fantastic. And we had some free samples in our room that we really liked. Would stay again.
