        The location is perfect. Close to the city center, easy walking distance to anything and everything. Fly next door is excellent and the breakfast at Saba was great.

      • Single
        7.4

        Convenient for my purposes, good price. Staff went out of their way to make one comfortable. Old hotel but coming around to be made more modern-- had hair dryer, iron + board, etc etc. Easy walk to Moscone Center, lots of good food around.

        Tv small (which was ok by me) Bathroom very tight for more than one person. Area a little "seedy" at night, but if necessary, plenty of cabs.

      • Single
        7.8

        it is built with culture and history, the staff are well-skilled and the location is quite desirable for the city tour, either daytime or night time.

        the rule for check-in after 3PM is quite critical and shall be flexible.

      • Couple
        10.0

        The staff were very friendly and initiate to make the guests feel very much like family. One of their staff, Edgar, was particularly noteworthy for his enthusiastic service qualities.

        The best thing about this Hotel were the staff. They were exceptionally helpful with everything from city geographics to restuarant recommendations. They were fantastically accomodating especially during the Volcanic Ash saga.

        The room we had was spacious and very clean however was at the top of the stairs next to reception which was very, very noisy. I had to buy earplugs but it didn't spoil our stay.

      • Single
        7.4

        Outstanding Lobby staffing, open bright Lobby, quiet hotel, valet parking

        Although the room was "clean", the windows and sills when windows were open were filthy; dead bugs. Bathroom tub could not be used; too stained; needs replacing. Bathroom door needed painting badly.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Good location. Short bus ride to Union Square or 15 minute walk. Friendly helpful staff. Wine in the evenings was a nice touch. Interesting Foyer area. I would stay at this hotel again. Safe area at night. Great cafe just up the road on corner of Levenworth and Sutter called "The Golden Cafe". Great breakfast and great value. Would go there everyday for the food and the ambience.

        Stayed at the back of the hotel and really didnt think much of the view, considering that we requested a room with either a view or a balcony but got neither. Im not even sure there were any balconies but it was offered when we made the booking. But I cant say that it was a problem.

        Front desk very helpful and friendly. Always knew me by name after the initial check in.

        The customer service was great. Everyone greeted me on a regular basis, knew my name and made me feel welcome.

        Wireless internet a little slow. Restaurant was weak. Took to long to get food and my bacon was burnt.

        The staff in the front desk is very nice and friendly. Room is clean and deserve its price!!

        After 10 P.m it is not very safe to go out

      • Family with children
        5.4

        I liked the king sized bed, the window city view from the shower, and the elevator walls were interesting.

        No continental breakfast, location is okay not great, kinda long distance walk from sight seeing spots

      • Single

        Well situated, people very kind, wifi included.

        Carpet in the room 614 quite spotted.

        10.0

        The staff was excellent! Super friendly and all knew the city well -- gave us great restaurant recommendations! Room was spacious and clean. Good part of town, right around the corner from Union Square and a cheap cab ride to Haight/Ashbury and the Wharf. One of the best hotel stays I've ever had!

      • Couple
        7.8

        Hotel staff were extremley helpful and friendly, Loved the happy hour idea to mingle with other travellers.

      • Older travelers

        1.Great location,10 min walk to Union Square, Powell\Markrt & China Town, Financial District. Also convenient for many sf muni, bart transportation lines, including cable car. 2. Good service from Staff. 3. Spacious, comfortable room, 2 double beds+in room safe, closet, big lcd tv. 3. a real "happy hour" every late aftenoon, combining pleasent gatharing, liquer, music, fireplace. 4. Nice view from 8th floor, view to City, Bay.

        1.Though mentioned in website- our room had no air condition-just ceiling fan (and heating). Ok for cool April 2011, we'd prefer AC'ed room\hotel during summer. 2. No (real) free internet, only 20 min. Free every 24 H., having swiped credit card. 3. One of 2 elevators is very slow (probably much older than the other). 4. Though convenient location, take extra care wandering next Tenderloin area (as Hotel Staff drew visitors' attention).5. Need extra windows curtains, as shutters do not really dark room, especially early morning.
