We stayed three nights at the Mayflower while in SF for a wedding. Overall, we were extremely happy with the hotel. The location is fantastic, the price is reasonable, and our room was clean and comfortable. As an added plus, the rest of the building is beautifully preserved -- sitting in their lobby, one really feels transported to the early 20th century.
If there are any downsides, I suppose they would be that the rooms are small and a little quirky (ours had a bathroom mirror at a 90 degree angle from the sink, which made shaving awkward). Also, there is no gym and the staff, while friendly enough, is not about to perform concierge-type duties. Basically, this is not a luxury hotel -- but they really aren't claiming to be, so I don't see that as a problem.
