“Great location and nice little hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

We got off the Bart train at Powell and Market from the airport and the hotel is just a few shops up from the cable car stop so the location really is superb. The wine and coffee hours are a nice touch too.
I like the dark decor, it gives it a bit of atmosphere in an old style NYC way.Dont get me wrong, its not the Ritz Carlton, but equally it is not a hostel, if you are on a reasonably moderate budget definitely stay here.
The room was of adequate size with 2 queen beds and small bathroom with satellite tv.

Great hotel, lovely big room. Very boutiquey. My room was on the fourth floor. Street sounds not too much of a bother. You really are in the thick of it. No breakfast facilities but there are diners all around. Easy quick check in too. The sounds of the tram never gets old... Very San Francisco.

My husband and I stayed here in 1/2014. This is a very cute boutique style hotel. It is well located. We found it very easy to get to all the major attractions by the BART ( bay area rapid transit)system. You can even take this to the airport. We would stay here again.

To be honest, the photos look better than the state of the room.

I stayed here for 2 nights on the sixth floor. The walls are thin and you can hear the noise from the lift of corridor at times. So suggest to get a room away from the lifts. The room is big and clean; bathroom is a little small but okay. The bed was not very comfortable but okay for me since it wasn't a long stay. Location of the hotel is very good, just within Union Square and closeby to Westfield and Macy's. There is a huge Walgreens just opposite from the hotel, very convenient to get any essentials.

There is a small Thai food joint just beside the hotel, food is pretty good, cheap and they open till late.

Good for short stays!

I usually stay slightly further up nearer Union Square when in SF, but that place is more expensive, so I wanted something a little cheaper but still nice for the two nights we had in SF. That's pretty much what we got! The room was small but I knew that before checking in. It was fine for us. It was clean as was the bathroom. The bathroom was almost as big as the room! You could hear everything around the hallways though from the elevator ping to doors closing, people talking, so that was a bit of a negative. There was virtually no view, but you get that with SF hotel rooms that don't look out onto the street...it doesn't bother us.

The location is great if you use the BART to get from SFO & back.

I would stay here again, even though I do prefer the other hotel I usually use (The Inn).

I was in SanFrancisco for business so it was just me in my room. The room was very small, but fine for just me. I did spend some time working in my room so the desk area was nice. I did enjoy the wine reception a couple times, and they concierge was very helpful with both recommendations and arranging a car for me to the airport ($50, less than a cab!)
Great location close to Mascone Center and can walk to tons of places. It was snowing and frigid back home so it was nice to be in "warm" weather (high 50's!)
