This quaint hotel on Bush, just west of Powell, is family run and contains much more than one would guess from the street view. The rooms are small but very clean and staff are all very helpful. Instead of a self-service breakfast one would expect at a similar property in Paris, one is entitled to a full service cooked breakfast each morning. The most negative thing I can say is that breakfast service does not start until 7:30am, so many business travelers may be precluded from partaking due to early morning meetings. The hotel also has a charming restaurant, and I also would highly recommend it. My wife and I will definitely check availability here for our next visit to San Francisco. An excellent sushi restaurant is essentially next door, and a delightful cafe is on the nearest corner, so one need not go far for good food. The toughest aspect is the slope when one climbs Powell from Sutter, to get up to Bush. Our visit was this past mid-August during a particularly cool period, but San Francisco often is quite temperate in August. Our room did not have AC, but it was not an issue for us during our visit.
