When I finally decided to go to San Francisco I had one criteria for my accommodation - it had to be a victorian building. Didn't want a cookie-cutter hotel that could have been anywhere in the country. The list to choose from was fairly short and boy did I do a great job when I decided on the Inn San Francisco.
The bed was incredible...it was so soft and comfortable I was almost scared to sleep on it as I have low-grade back issues. No problem - under all that cushiness is some serious support.
The breakfast spread was great each morning. So much fresh fruit and lots of carb and protein choices to round it out. Beautifully presented each morning and wonderfully fresh. On surprise was the availability of pie each day for breakfast. Seemed a bit unusual but I very quickly got used to that idea. From now on, for me, nothing will say "I'm on holidays" as well as pumpkin pie at breakfast. Fresh coffee and a great assortment of teas available at any time of day.
The building itself is wonderful - love the staircase to the roof patio.
The hot tub, the hot tub, the hot tub. I still miss it. What a wonderful thing it was to be able to relax in it each evening after a day of walking around the city.
The staff was wonderful. Never in your face but someone always was available when needed. It poured rain our first day, despite SF being in a drought. When we returned "home", they quickly arranged to dry not only our jackets and clothes, but also our sodden runners. BTW - they do have umbrellas available for use. Wish I had bothered to take one that day.
The Inn is a bit out of the way, but transit was easy and never seemed to take too long.
We didn't arrive until almost midnight but there was no problem with late check-in.
Oh yeah, candy dishes in your room and wonderful Girardelli chocolates daily. These people know how to do hospitality! Inn San Francisco was a wonderful place to stay.
