Well yes it is very expensive. It's in the middle of Union Square San Francisco, so you pay for the location and the top notch service. This hotel is just about in the perfect location. Dozens of shops and restaurants are all within walking distance. We even walked to the baseball park from there. The trolleys and buses stop right... More

I stayed on the 21st floor here very recently. This is a well located hotel on Sutter street at the junction with Powell. Lori's Diner is right across serving tasty breakfast and too many choices at that. Walgreens is across and so is Star Bucks. What more do you need? Not enough? Seven eleven IS FEW STEPS AWAY FROM WALGREENS.... More

Magnific rooms, very comfort king sized beds and a spectacular view from our 23th floor bedroom!! The hotel is clean, but wifi and breakfast are not included! Prices are too high and they don't offer us sleepers or bath robes. I'm changing my hotel reservation for the Hilton one.

This is my absolute favorite hotel in the City. It is close walking distance to everything and is my first choice anytime we are in San Francisco. Rooms are basic but very nice and bathrooms are updated and spacious.
