    Free breakfast each morning was a huge plus... probably the best thing about our short stay. Food wasn't great, but decent. The rooftop view was gorgeous but the bar was never open while we were there.

    Whatever you do - DO NOT order room service!!! We were completely robbed!!! BUYER BEWARE!!! We ordered food to our room and paid over $50. It was delivered in a bag so I did not see all the contents at first. We paid and left a fat tip only to find that we were missing two items we ordered. The food they did actually deliver was wet and leaking and not fully cooked. We threw it right in the trash. We called room service back to complain that we were overcharged as they did not even deliver our entire order. They basically gave us the run-around to "call back tomorrow." Long story short, we called back about 6 times, spoke to 4 different people and was hung up on once. We never got our money back or any type of reconciliation... straight up robbed. Aside from room service - area is not the safest, but as long as you don't walk/ wander around, you will be okay. Parking garage is kind of a scam as they make up new prices each time you ask. TV did not have any decent channels and we did not have a working remote. The hotel gave us new batteries but there was still nothing to watch on TV. Cleanliness of room was decent. Overall, I would not return to stay again as the room service situation left a bad taste in my mouth. It was upsetting how they handled it - or lack of.

    Classy, very clean and comfortable, with diverse patrons.

    Housekeeping does not understand English very well.

    The room was fairly clean.

    The was no pool and the location was a block away from the homeless shelter so lots of beggers. No vending machines!

  • Group of friends

    Good staff, breakfast included, regular shuttle bus service

    Location is in the area with rather a high density of homeless people, but not agressive. And shuttle bus service minimizes this shortcoming

    The security

    I was kept up most of the night by my neighbors..it seemed like there were at least a half a dozen guys in there and felt like they were in the room with me. It was very loud.

    big bed, clean room, staff friendly

    a bit noisy in room 201 (above the check -in desk). No wifi in room.

  • Older travelers

    The room was very comfortable, very new, bathroom modern.

    Did not have airconditioning, not a major requirement for SF in the winter but in the summer could be a problem

    Location, cleanliness, courteous staff, complimentary shuttle service

    Design and ambient inside the hotel.

    The rooms didn't have space to put the clothes, check that you will need to be a luggage master to be more than a few days.

  • Couple

    The breakfast is awfull. The place where breakfast is served is too small for the amounth of people staying in this hotel. Also the bathroom is not clean at all. I was there for my honeymoon and I was counting days to leave this hotel.

    This was a very nice and friendly hotel. The staff was outstandind! Our room was roomy, very clean and the bed was wonderful. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning and all the food and service was outstanding, The staff was very attentive and did everything possible to make our stay with them a time to remember.I Would not hesitate to stay there again.

    I cannot think of anything that we were unhappy with,

    Great hotel. clean, staff are very nice. location is ok, hotel has a shuttle service to main locations.

    breakfast is very simple, you need to pay for eggs etc.

  • Couple
    10.0

    I liked the cleanliness of the room and the modern style of the hotel. It was very quiet The bathroom was very exquisite and easy to use. The hotel is not situated in the downtown area but is within very short walking distance, which makes it a good place to stay.

  • Single

    The room was really nice and clean. Great value for money.

    Location is terrible: Tenderloin is a very dangerous neighborhood. Homeless people everywhere. I heard gunshots from my room, and was harassed by some black drug addicts by the entrance of the hotel (they wanted me to give them my phone!)
