We've been staying here on our sporadic visits to San Francisco for probably fifteen years.
I would stay even more frequently if they accepted state rate for my business travel. The location, right off Union Square and a couple blocks up from Chinatown and Belden Place, near the Powell Street cable car and walking distance to BART, can't be beat. The rooms aren't large bur they are more than adequate, clean, and charmingly decorated. I only wish they had bigger softer towels. One of the best things is that the room comes with a full breakfast, and at night, the Jean d'Arc restaurant serves an incredible prix fixe dinner. If you are lucky, you can go during a time when they are offering a package which includes dinner and sometimes parking.
