Amazing Staff and location ”

Firstly we were given the wrong room a rookie error I guess. The manager stepped in and rectified the error and gave my wife and myself a complimentary bottle of wine 🍷 from there our experience just became better. Great location and all of the staff are super friendly and amazing to deal with nothing was to hard. Would strongly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in San Francisco!

Best location, near everything you need, worth money”

Best Location ever, located center of everything travelled may need shopping (Uniqlo just opposite, H&M just few steps away) restaurants, main station for cable car, bus and super convenient from-to SFO airport by BART. Few homeless around by totally safe with suceurity guard although night and since it’s really center on Main Street, there s light along the way with night club and Pub. Highly recommend to stay here if you come to San Francisco. Worth every penny!!

Small room, but well designed ”

Very conveniently located near Powell St BART station. Pricey, but perhaps not for San Francisco. No air conditioning but okay with the fan on and the window open a bit. But a lot of early morning noise from the street. Breakfast not included in the price. Placement of toilet roll apparently designed for an orangutan (you need long arms).

Poor Communication”

The entire building facade was being painted and EVERY window of the hotel was blocked by scaffolding and black material. This situation was never communicated to us, even after calling the concierge to make dinner reservations. They didn’t even mention it at check in until we asked. The front desk staff was very accommodating in transfering ya to their sister hotel (Hotel Diva) but the poor/abscent communication about the situation left a bad taste in our mouths. With so many other boutique hotels available in San Francisco, we would not attempt to stay here again.

Good Location”

Situated in the heart of Union Square which makes traveling easy. Walking distance to Powell Subway Station. Shopping area right at the doorstep. There's also Walgreen opposite the hotel which you can get groceries. The room is clean and comfortable. However, Wifi is unstable. As complimentary bottle drink are not provided. Do bring along your water bottle; they have water dispenser for you. I quite like the idea as it can help to reduce the number of plastic bottles use. On top of the room charges, you have to pay for facilities fee which we do not utilize other than Wifi. The gym is located at another hotel, making it slightly inconvenient. The hotel provides hot drinks at the lobby in the morning. Making it perfect on cold days.

Great location for in-town shopping and more importantly very responsible customer service”

We picked this hotel for a 2-night stay because of its location and generally positive review. When we arrived at the hotel, the front desk told us they did not have record of our booking. We were allowed to contact the booking website with the hotel's phone, and the front desk very quickly resolved the issue by letting us check in to the last room available for the night. Although the room was very small, we were glad we had a room after the long travelling. The next morning the hotel informed us that they can move us to the room style we originally booked, and is willing to compensate for the first night's stay. Obviously this is not the most ideal situation, but the front desk handled it in a very helpful and professional manner. Wish I had the name of the staff to recommend him! All in all, this hotel is perfect location for in-town shoppers, and great value too (if you get the right room!)

Not what expected. ”

Location was good next to a lot of shopping and food. The exterior and lobby are quite charming with updated furniture and decor. That's where charm ended. Our room was quite tiny, not at all what was pictured. We could get over that as we were just sleeping there. The bathroom, however, was so small it looked like they got half price for half a sink. Shower and flooring needed to be updated though clean. Our room had the barest of furnishing and little to no decor. Flooring could probably use an upgrade. Bed had just bare minimum with two sheets and small pillows. On top of that we could hear EVERYTHING our neighbor was saying in her own room not even talking loudly. And- heads up- parking is $55/night. I'm used to expensive city parking, but that is incredibly steep especially when we thought we were getting a good deal on a room. Also, no A/C. Luckily we had a blast in San Fran and this did not rain on our parade.

Accommodating staff, great value for its location!”

I was here for a business trip for 5 days & was late getting a hotel room. All the places within walking distance to the conference was over $350/night — this place was a lot cheaper and was in such a great location! Right across from a large Walgreens with food, lots of eateries and shopping nearby, very touristy area but very safe (since there are so many nice businesses around and people!). All the staff, from receptionists to housekeeping, were very nice — and accommodating! I needed some special accommodations that I was shy requesting, and they were more than happy to help me! It made my stay much more pleasant just due to that. I didn’t get a chance to use their workout facility but I do know they have wine hour every night! I’d recommend the place definitely!

Great location, basic.”

The location is excellent, near to shops and restaurants and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room had a view over the street, which was nice. It was quite small, and the bathroom was dark, and not that inviting. It did the job. We also had a $25 charge that must have been in small print. It was for morning coffee, music in the evening for an hour or two, and a flat packed, plastic water bottle in the room. However, we arrived later, didn’t know about this, and didn’t really want it. We would rather have had the option. There is a car park next door, that cost $38 rather than paying $65 for valet. The car park at the back of the hotel is $55? I would go back to the hotel, as it is in a great location, and probably cheaper than most in that area.

Note when you are choosing this hotel that you will pay additional daily fees to the hotel on arrival. I guess I didn't read the fine print - but I also think its a bit dodgy - they should just roll it into the overall price listed on the site. Room was fine, good decor and black & white films in reception, room really quiet given the bustling location.

Prime location but unfunctioning room”

This hotel is located on the best location in SF, however, not everything about this hotel is prime. Despite the busy traveling guests, the interior design and lighting of the hotel creates a feelinvof isolating and scary lone hotel. It might be a matter of taste in this case but dust on many parts of my room is definitely universally not acceptable. There is a pile of dust on my coffee maker, so, if you're going to use that, you want to wash it thoroughly before using. Moreover, the heater for my shower didn't work! I had to have cold shower during my stay
