The "centennial club" rooms in this hotel are the most comfortable, offering such amenities as free wi-fi (I had to remind the desk clerk about this, though, because the network was still asking me to pay by credit card), plush bathrobes, better beds, coffeemaker, etc... BUT these rooms have a view on Powell street, quite a busy place at night....

Cons: We stayed in the standard queen room and it looks like the 360 degree video on thier website,...

This a small boutique hotel in a great location. The Stratford is right on Powell Street. Down the bottom of the street is the cable car turn-around - which takes you to fisherman's wharf. Warning: the lines here are HUGE. If you walk up the hill a bit, you can usually jump on on a car fairly easily. Also down...
