We stayed at the Hotel Rex during the first part of our honeymoon trip through North America. We tend to favour smaller boutique hotels with character and this certainly did not disappoint. When we were greeted on arrival, we were congratulated on our recent marriage and upgraded to an Executive King Room which was very spacious - there was also a card and some chocolates waiting for us in the room which was a lovely surprise. The service was impeccable throughout and nothing was too much trouble. The staff were very informative and also very proud of their City! We had breakfast once in Cafe Andree which was very nice although we ventured out during other days to enjoy what San Francisco had to offer! The free coffee in the morning and wine hour late afternoon is also a lovely touch and we really enjoyed this. The location is fantastic being just a couple of blocks from Union Square and the cable cars making it easy to get around. The only slight issue we had - and it was slight - is that occasionally the mini bar fridge can be a bit noisy during the night but this is nothing major. Overall, a great stay and start to our honeymoon and we will check out Joie de Vivre hotels if we are back in San Francisco again.
