    Classy, very clean and comfortable, with diverse patrons.

    Housekeeping does not understand English very well.

  • Family with children
    5.0

    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
    8.8

    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

  • Couple

    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.

  • Couple
    5.4

    big bed, clean room, staff friendly

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

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    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

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Location, cleanliness, courteous staff, complimentary shuttle service

  • Family with children
    7.4

    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
    4.2

    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.

  • Older travelers

    Clean Hotel and great view for breakfast!!!!

    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,

  • Couple

    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
    8.2

    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!)

  • Couple
    9.2

    Helpful staff Free wi-fi Breakfast included

    Location can be a bit scary but staff explain what part of the surrounding area to avoid if you go walking around on your own. There is a free shuttle service to places of interest but we did not make use of it.
