Character old-style hotel just off Union Square. No meals in-house but plenty of options nearby. Fabulous concierge. Smallish bathroom but a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room is a nice touch. The hotel is totally pet-friendly.

Highly recommended, very convenient to everything and so, so helpful front desk! Rate much better than others in this same area. I could walk everywhere I wanted or needed to go. You won't be disappointed, beds are small but I knew that when I booked it.

Really nice little hotel near union square. It's near public transport so a great location. The rooms are a little small and out dated but that what makes it. The reception staff were really nice and friendly except the older gentleman on nights who didn't even say bye after checking out.

Clean, updated boutique style hotel. Easily accessible from a main street. Not very noisy considering location to busy area. Very nice accommodating front desk staff, concierge and housekeeping team. Well priced for San Fran, small rooms but goal was to sightsee and stay outside.
