My partner and I spent two nights here, and were immediately struck by how friendly the hotel staff are -- they know, and love their city, and they are brimming full of useful tips you won't find in most guide books. Make the most of them! The location is absolutely fantastic, about ten minutes walk (uphill) from BART, twenty minutes or so from Chinatown, and near Market Street, Union Square, and the start of the Cablecar line. Breakfast was 'continental' style and is served in the hallway on each floor -- tea, coffee, orange juice, fruit and pastries. It's rather sparse, but the pastries are tasty enough, and it'll set you up until you can find somewhere for brunch. Rooms are cosy, with plenty of character and the original features are mostly present, so it really does still feel a little like 1905.
The main downside? With the building being constructed in 1905, some of the rooms are small. Our room was 407, and the bathroom was so small that I had to sit on the toilet sideways because the sink was directly above it! The mirror was also directly in front of the bed. If you like a little bit more space, I'd clarify at check-in. Also, with being near Union Square, there was some traffic and street noise. I'm a light sleeper, and it wasn't enough to disturb me.
If the price was right, I wouldn't hesitate staying here again.
