My fiance and I wanted to spend a week in San Francisco and not pay big bucks, so we were happy when we found a deal on Expedia for this hotel (paid about $100 usd per night taxes included). We chose to upgrade to the executive level suite with a king bed which was worth the extra money.
We were on the 26th floor and had a city view. Its an old hotel thats been renovated, so the windows are only single paned which did make it a bit noisy, but it wasnt a big deal.
Our room was nice, modern, clean and large. We had a coffee maker but no fridge so we bought a disposable cooler to store milk & juice for breakfasts in our room.
The business center has pay per use computers & printers, but we found a computer with full internet access in the 'concierge lounge' on the 26th floor. Our room key worked to open the door and we used the computer in there the whole week. There is no printer, but it was better than paying big money per minute using the computers in the business center.
We took advantage of the Manicure/Pedicure special at the Tru spa in the hotel ($45 for a mani & pedi). And we really enjoyed it.
We ate at the Seven Fifty lounge in the hotel one morning for breakfast and found it to be a huge waste of money. There are lots of great restaurants just minutes away from the hotel that are much more reasonably priced.
The location of the hotel was great - it was definately in Chinatown but was only 2 blocks from the Financial District. It was a 7 minute walk to Union Square, 5 minutes to the Italian district and close to all major transit lines (the BART was a 10 minute walk, Cable car was 3 minutes away, and the Muni stop was 100 yards from the front door of the hotel).
We bought a City Pass ($59 and we picked it up at the SF MOMA) this was the best thing we did! It gave us 7 days of unlimited Cable Car & Muni rides (cable cars alone are $5 per ride) it also gave us free passes to the California Academy of Sciences, a boat tour in the bay and much more (check out: [-].
We didnt take a cab once while we were there, the transit system is great and easy to use if you have a map of the routes.
All in all this was a good experience for the price point and we would recommend this hotel.
