This hotel is centrally located, just near Union Square and Market St. The BART subway (Powell St) is close by and the Moscone Conference center is about half a mile on foot.
There are plenty of shops, restaurants, banks and pharmacies surrounding the hotel, plus parking garages and a couple of car rental companies.
Although in a busy area, I didn't hear any outside noise with rooms clean, comfortable and quiet. They were spacious with en-suite bathrooms (something many San Francisco central hotels don't have as standard).
The wifi was fast and reliable - free when you signed up for their rewards program. The minibar was well stocked and they had a good list of complimentary products (toothpaste, deodorant, coffee) that the staff brought to my room very promptly. My only wish was to have a coffee marker in the room as standard so I could've made tea/coffee at my convenience.
The hotel did serve complimentary tea/coffee and fruit/pastries in the morning and offered a wine hour in the evening which was an added bonus! I didn't use the gym facilities but having a yoga mat and yoga/pilates TV channel in the room was excellent.
The staff were all very friendly, polite and professional. I will definitely stay again if I return to SF.
