We stayed here in the 'Kids Suite' during Oracle week, (couldn't change dates due to the rest the trip) and yes, rates were very high, but so were all hotels around Union Square. Having spend a week or so prior relaxing in Southern California and Anaheim, trying to find a parking space and walking around the San Fran CBD with...

Stayed here for 3 nights and we loved every second we spent in the hotel! Hotel itself is in a fantastic location, right next to the BART from the airport, tram line, good shopping and right next to decent food joints. As I planned to get propose here I contacted the concierge before my arrival and he upgraded us to...

Hotel is pretty good. The hotel staff were super friendly and helpful. The location itself was quite ideal. It didn't take us long to get anywhere we wanted to go. The room was lovely and very modern. Beds were comfortable. The only problem we did have was the noise from the street. We were given warning of this by the...

Our room was large and bed/pillows comfortable. No vanity in bathroom so no bench space but was beautifully tiled and clean. Our room was in the middle of the building so had...

I absolutely loved this hotel. Its location was absolute perfection. All the stores are walking distance, places to eat, places to see. The staff was very friendly. The beds and pillows are so comfortable that I was a little upset when I got back from vacay and had to sleep on my bed. I recommend this hotel to anyone. I...

In June spent four nights at this hotel. It is an older hotel that has been renovated but retains some of it's old world charm. Rooms were well furbished, beds were super comfortable, all was clean and well kept. Just half a block from the Powell turn around for the cable car which takes you right down to Fisherman's Wharf....

The taxi pulled up at the hotel and I'm thinking "what has the travel agent done to us" all I could see was a row of old buildings and one little, easily missed door to the hotel, but what a surprise, never judge a book by it's cover, it turned out to be a gem!!! The rooms were very trendy...

Not having an idea of the area for our first visit to San Fran, we made a good choice by staying at this location. The location was perfect.....in the midst of the cable car turnaround which is literally a few steps outside of the hotel entrance, in walking distance from Macy's, and that area as well. Walls are a bit...
