We were welcomed at the street when we arrived by shared shuttle. We loved the pineapple-accent cupcakes and water. It would have been helpful to know ahead of time that the cab would cost less than the shared shuttle, when I inquired about airport transportation.
Hotel was surprisingly nice as we were expecting a budget hotel. Common areas and rooms are well designed and have an upscale bouticy feel. I had issues with the fact that our room did not receive any natural light so it was impossible to know if the sun had risen. I felt like in a dungeon. My partner did not have any issues with this. My suggestion, don't get the most basic room.
Great hotel! Tonga restaurant was very good. Our room was very nice and clean. The best part about the room was the bed. It was very comfortable. The only downside to our room was the air conditioning. It was a little warm in the room. When we arrived the air was set to 65 but the room temp was at 75. We asked the front desk to have someone to come look at it when we went out for dinner. When we came back the room temp was still at 75. Also the sink in the bathroom was a little clogged. Overall the hotel is excellent and location is nice too close to everything. Would definitely stay here again.
"Excellent Location, Friendly Staff, Price Is Right"
I walked into a well-loved hotel, it is definitely lacking updates but the staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel and rooms were clean. The elevator is the oldest elevator I have ever been in which is a little nerve-wracking. BUT parking was not expensive for overnight parking across the street, the hotel was well priced for how close it is to EVERYTHING in downtown San Fran. Loved my stay, would definitely come back.
Flagship stores ring Union Square, among the vanguard of West Coast retail. Chinatown begins at Grant Avenue and Bush Street, while Gold Rush-era mansions crown Nob Hill. South of Union Square, the convention center area includes the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Cable cars turn around at Powell and Market streets to head back to Fisherman's Wharf.
