Room is eerie

Location, location and location
Room is very small. Door doesn't come with a latch. Bed has noises. The room gives an eerie feel, especially insecure due to the door without latch.

Excellent Location

Location, helpful staff, happy hour
Located right next to tram terminus and Bart. Close to shops and Union Square. Able to walk to Fishermans Walk. Hotel has character and is awaiting an update so carpets and some fittings a little tired. Towels and bed linen of good quality and changed regularly. Happy hour from Monday to Thursday a welcome bonus.

Staff was very friendly. Rooms need updating.

Location-extremely convenient; staff--very friendly; free happy hour on week nights
As most know, San Francisco is a very expensive city. It is hard to complain about the cost per night since the location is so good, but the building and amenities are still sub-par for a room in the $250/night range. When I first checked in there was a roach running around on the carpet in the middle if the floor (in broad daylight). When I brought it up to the front desk, they were very responsive and offered to move me to an upgraded room. The new room was better but both rooms had a less-than-desirable smell to them. I'm pretty sure if my wife was traveling with me we would have left to look for a different hotel. I could tolerate the room smell for as little as I was in it each day and I couldn't beat the convenient location so I just dealt with it.
