Peter H. Business travelers Canada, April 15, 2015
Good location, desperately needs a deep cleaning

Location, price and location.
Location is close to Moscone but the room cleanliness isn't high. Surface areas were reasonably clean but everywhere else appeared lacking - corners are full of dust and dirt, layers of dust and grime on fixtures, even splashed paint in areas that had poor maintainance done. Feels like an old Paris hotel without the charm. If they renovated the entire property it could be good, as is I would not stay at again.
Kim H. Business travelers South Korea, March 24, 2015

location, reasonable price, clean
Not very kind. But good location.

Vlastimil C. Business travelers United Kingdom, January 28, 2015
Ok for 3 stars

Location - if you're after something cheap and central, mind you 5th and 6th street are not the best neighbourhood.
It was clean and room was serviced well. "Free WiFi" did not work most of the time, utterly impossible to use after 7PM. I tried for a week to get someone to fix it, to no avail. As I travelled for business, this was kind of important to me.
Ben G. Families with young children Singapore, December 2, 2014
Good location hotel

clean, size is just nice and good location
It was good and I like the location! Good food around the corner and best for shoppers. Will definitely consider coming back
Ek K. Couples Malaysia, November 21, 2014
Quiet hotel

Location, price and access
It was a pleasant stay at the fringe of the Union Square area on the quiet side.
William S. Business travelers United States of America, November 21, 2014
They really push buying direct through them

Location, Cost, I don't know
TL;DR: If you buy through Agoda or other partners, beware, you're a second class citizen here. The wifi is spotty to slow for San Francisco. When I first arrived with a prepaid travel voucher through Agoda the front desk guy kind of scoffed at me and I was given a well-worn room on the second floor that I discovered in the first hour had no fridge, broken/chipped furniture, a horrible view, a TV that wouldn't turn on and the slowest 'high-speed' internet I've experienced since the day of dial-up. Because this was a business trip and I had to prepare presentations, that last discomfort was not tolerable and I went down to talk to the front desk about moving rooms. After explaining the work/internet situation, they moved me a few floors up and it was a very different experience: newer-cleaner furniture, a nice view, a bigger tv that worked, a fridge, a much nicer chest of drawers and there was a moderately faster internet connection (about 2-3 megs... still slow for San Francisco), but directly across from the noisey ice machine. The hotel wasn't full by any means, but whatever, at least I can do my work. They're very insistent that you should book directly through them. They even use it as the wifi username and password. Otherwise, it's a inexpensive hotel with the necessary amenities in a good location.
John S. Solo travelers United States of America, October 25, 2014
Great location for decent price

Location, price, historic
Pretty good stay mostly due to the location. The room was small, the bathroom was old and tired but the hotel was clean and had some character. It was right across the street from the SF Chronicle and the Old SF Mint, a block from the Powell Bart station, and walking distance to just about everything including AT&T Park. I will stay there again because of the price and the location.
