This is the 3rd time that I have stayed at the Encore Express. The hotel is clean, the rooms are fairly spacious, attractively furnished and the location is great. One can walk to Union Square very easily; walk down Polk Street, turn left on Geary - it's all flat. A few blocks from the hotel, at the corner of Calif. and Hyde is a Trader Joe's grocer, which is a fantastic market. (don't go at meal time, as you'll be at the check out for a long time). The hotel rooms have small refrigerators and there is a microwave and a toaster outside the reception office. A great way to economize.
Hope to return to SF (I lived there for many years) next fall and will stay at the Encore Express.
