A very enjoyable staff in the front office and restaurant Jeanne d'Arc. Lovely quiet rooms with simplicity at it's peak and very comfortable bed. A full breakfast was a great way to start a San Francisco day without fussing for coffee and a bite to eat. Meeting the owner was delightful as well as I can see he is keeping watch over his lovely hotel and restaurant.
The restaurant is a huge salute to Jeanne d'Arc - and the food is delicious. The souflée was outstanding, as was the chocolate moose - and the entire meal from salad through filet mignon and pepper steak were joyous delights. La Cuisine - c'est magnifique ! What do we mean by a high salut to J. d'aAc? Statues, paintings galore encourage your eyes to wander around the dining room seeing what nooks and crannies might be hiding an old steam iron for pressing clothing...or other antiques delightfully placed throughout the hotel.
One key delight - the elevator. No more needs to be said until you see it with your own eyes.
The staff went out of their way to help us with a tight schedule for dinner, and we will return - even though we live within commuting distance of San Francisco.
