    The facilities in the a double room were comfortable, beds were exceptionally comfortable. Climate control, multi-channel television and an iron turned out to be good. The staff was accommodating and pretty friendly, they blew my mind. The location was marvellous, for example, The Masonic was within walking distance of the hotel...

    We stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel was brand-new, had decent location close to everything. The room was reasonably large and updated, the staff was accommodating. Everything was good during our stay nevertheless disappointing aspect was a bit small bathroom.

    room has been renovated and quite well decorated. family room is not very spacious, it is nice, new and with comfortable beds. new bathroom, cute and very clean, although not very big. Central location, with the well-known homeless problems of San Francisco, are reproduced almost all over the center and city.

    In the situation in which the hotel finds itself in August 2018, it is by no means advisable. All the common areas were cancelled and closed to guests (in fact, with super-cute plastics). It's one thing to partially renovate a common area (which I had read about more than a year ago), but it's another thing to have the entire hotel (except for your room) cancelled for use. The impression was dire on arrival. After the pasture we struggled with, finding a crappy reception desk and everything else literally covered in plastic was a huge disappointment. The hotel was not only disappointing, but considering the services provided, enormously expensive, even considering the high prices of San Francisco. . If a hotel has completely cancelled ALL COMMON AREAS, you should warn guests when booking. And moderate its prices according to the services not provided to the clients. So my advice is to make sure that the renovations are completed before you book, because in the meantime, I think there are better options in San Francisco. . In any case, it will still be difficult for them to ensure this, because I contacted the hotel in relation to confirming the renovation of the room they would assign me, and in no case was I told that all the common areas would be closed for "precious plastics". On the contrary, the emphasis was on the complete renovation of all their rooms. So I reproach the total lack of transparency and information of the hotel. With a simple warning, the client can decide what he wants to do for compensation. But the hotel's way of proceeding is a deception of the client.

    The lobby was beautiful and the staff very informative and kind. The location was perfect for us.

    My husband and I were a little disappointed that the room was so small and had an "old" odor to it.

    Good location, comfortable room, walking distance to Civic Center, Union Square, Cable cars and many attractions, Free Internet in the rooms; On the whole excellent value for money

    Breakfast selection can be improved - was just bread, donuts.. Better selection such as cereals will help. Some reception staff were not the most friendly.
