We booked this hotel as part II of our honeymoon trip (part I was Napa!). The location couldn't have been better! Right by the trolley cars (useful to hop on/off when needing to get to the station for the Bart or Muni and just fun in general!). Near all the best shopping, food, and attractions. Super safe area (walked around at all hours of the night). The hotel itself was beautifully decorated/hand painted... really romantic! For those who are light sleepers or get annoyed with "guest noise", this is not the spot for you (it's an older building, so the walls are thinner than what most are used to with chain hotels!). Hot breakfast every morning was wonderful. We were slightly miffed at the note that was left at the coffee/tea nook about how the tea cups cannot be taken to private guest rooms and that a tip should be left (for self serve coffee and tea), but we figured that was a customs gap. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and hope to be back in a few years!
