Reviewed 26 June 2014

You think you can withstand anything for one night, but believe me, you cannot withstand this. I am not one to complain about hotels but in this case I must. This is, in every sense of the word, a trash-hole. The front desk staff is beyond rude, the rooms are quite literally the size of a closet, and borderline disgusting. The only redeeming quality about this hotel is the location-- right in the middle of a bunch of other hotels. Pay the extra $30-40 and stay somewhere else. If for some ungodly reason you do end up staying here, do not let them valet your car for $40. Google "garage" and find a reasonably priced hourly parking garage a block away. Don't expect the front desk people to tell you that information, or anything other than "calm down" when you express the slightest annoyance that they inexplicably lost your reservation. AWFUL.

I decided to stay here despite some of the negative reviews. When I got home I noticed there was a $14 charge on my account. I contacted the hotel and they stated that I had taken items from the snack bar. I am a frequent traveler and always steer clear of the snack bar and when asked if I had taken anything when I left I said no, because I had not, why would I? There literally was a mini market on the next corner that sold snacks for half the price. In all of my travels this has never happened. The guy on the phone was nice, but not very helpful, he said this happens all the time, they trust their cleaning staff, and then suggested I contact my bank to dispute the amount. I feel bad cause I was kind of rude to him, but it is a frustration situation.

Aside from that incident, the hotel itself is nothing to write home about. It looks nicer in the pictures, our bed was not very comfortable and bathroom was not the cleanest. You get what you pay for. Its San Francisco, if you can cough up a little more look for a nicer hotel downtown or stay right in the outskirts. If you do stay here make sure you take a picture of the snack bar before you leave.

I was suppose to fly to Taipei but the flight was canceled and I found myself with a place to stay fort the evening. Having no real idea of the options available I called my agent and just asked to find a hotel need BART. She pulled up Hotel Fusion, the rate was OK and I was on my way.

I was glad to see that the hotel really was close to BART (Powell Street). I only had carry-on luggage but I really did not want to lug it too far. In one block I was at the Hotel and greeted by a very efficient desk clerk who had me in my room in no time.

The room was small but I expected that. Internet worked fine so I could re-arange all the things needed due to my flight cancellation.

The next day, checkout was fast and I was on my way to the airport in plenty of time.

If I am ever stranded again in SFO I'll remember to stay here.

The hotel is in the union square area and really close to the Powell Street Station. The front desk clerks were always extra polite. We checked-in early. There was always hot coffee in the lobby every time we checked. The hallways are well cared for. The room overall was OK, but one side of the bed was extremely close to the wall and difficult to get into/out of. The wireless internet was fast enough to watch Netflix. We took advantage of the coffee, bagels, fruit, pastries, etc available in the morning in the small breakfast room. The in-window air conditioner wasn't quiet, but wasn't annoying. We would stay there again.

We could not have picked a better located hotel in San Francisco. This hotel was less than a five minute walk from Powell Street Station. This is easy to get to on the Metro upon arrival at SF airport. It is also on the next street from the Cable Car which took us direct to Fisherman's Wharf. It was also pretty close to the bus which takes you to the Golden Gate Bridge (Number 10) and on into Sausalito. Although the rooms were small the comfort, cleanliness, Free WiFi and complimentary breakfast more than made up for this. A very small and basic gym was also a welcome bonus with free bottles of water and towels. It was also right beside Nordstrom's and we found it to be a little gem of a place all round. Yes the décor is a little dated and staff were not overly friendly. We also noticed that the Concierge was not on site very often which made it a little inconvenient when we wanted to ask questions as we then had to go to the reception desk. All in all a good stay and very handy to all rental car locations if you are heading on somewhere else from San Fran.

Room Tip: Ask for their superior rooms if available. Although it is likely to cost a little more. Try and ge...
