I can't believe I've never stayed here before! Everything was stylish and updated, the hotel wasn't run down like another hotel in the area which I won't name. Easy check-in/check-out. Very kind employees. Nice big room. Great value!

Nice, clean hotel in waking distance to much of San Francisco. A bit expensive, but I think everything is here. There is a restaurant on first floor that has a simple, but good menu to get your day started.

I can only say that we had two huge beds in our room so my teenage daughter and I had a great time. No screen but it was so roomy that didn’t matter to us. Maybe they could give you a screen?

Looks like the street the hotel is on (Sutter St) will be closed to traffic. If possible, ask yr shuttle driver to drop you off at either Laguna/Sutter or Bush/Buchanan. Either location will have you a block away from the hotel.
