Nice location for walking to Union square, Chinatown, and to the wharf. Lots of diverse restaurants close by, different price ranges. Very helpful front desk staff. Plenty of ubers in the area. Hotel is historic because of its cameo in the movie vertigo, so it is quite old. It is nicely kept up and the rooms were very clean. Bathrooms...

Booked this hotel through Tablet Hotels, who used to be a trustworthy source of good hotels. The staff was unfriendly, the room was old and smelled funny. The bed and linens were cheap. Their internet connection was a joke, slower than a 56K modem.

The good fortune on Vertigo from JPM Health enables market based price gouging. But this one makes me dizzy. You would think that for the premiums the hotel received it could respond in some way from a service level. The friendly desk attendants all seem in some type of guided fog about the bare bones internet bandwidth. Signal ranged between...

The location was fine - it's a hilly 20 minute walk to the convention center, which is fine by me. Service was friendly and as helpful as they could be. Room was big enough and clean. BUT. The walls are paper thin. I could hear both sides of a phone conversation in the next room, and every word that was...

This hotel was very nice! The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Everything is kept clean and good looking. The lobby is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. The elevator was pretty slow but we just ended up taking the stairs, no problem. We will be back!

The hotel is nice. Our room was clean, quiet and comfortable. And we love the location. It's walking distance to many restaurants and points of interest (Chinatown, etc.). The hotel's parking was pricey so we opted to use a garage a few blocks away. But I would definitely stay again!

Stayed here over New Year's weekend and I was quite impressed! Our room was quite large, even had a walk in closet. The bed was very comfortable, which is the most important thing.

Around the corner from husbunny's awesome hip surgeon. Ample comfy rooms. Breakfast across the street & Sutter Fine Foods next door help immensely. Walking distance to Union Square et al. Front Desk Boss, Sam Bland adds the piest de resistance! 2nd visit better than the first!

This hotel was perfect. The room was clean and extremely quiet (which is rare in the city). Bathtub was spacious. I would definitely stay here again. Not a far walk to Union Square. Convenient location.
