The staff were very friendly. Rooms were spacious.
We had booked 2 rooms and requested adjoining - one for parents and the second for the kids. Upon check in the reception desk person said we had actually got one room in the historic building and the second in the modern building! Oh no! BUT he went out of his way to move things around to give us 2 rooms (one king, one 2 full) in the historic building. Excellent service. The rooms were great, spacious and beds extremely comfortable. Not too much traffic noise either. We all slept well.
Great location and overall nice hotel
There were stains on the bedding and the AC made a weird sound and left a weird smell in the room.
Position. Few yards from Union Square and Powell street and all the public transport you might need in San Francisco - bus, metro and Bart to and from the airport. Staff. There was a problem with my booking but they managed to sort it out and the registration staff were quite flexible to accept the options I offered. Luggage storage properly handled. Housekeeping. Room and the whole hotel was clean.
TV. Few channels and low quality. There is room for improvement there.
According to my booking confirmation, my room is queen room and area is 28m2, but actually, my bed is normal size and area is far less than the reservation. Let me feel cheated.
