“Good Location, small rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2012

Good location just off Union Square, great views from the upper floors when the fog clears. Not a very impressive entrance - not helped by the scaffolding that's up at the moment. Efficient & reasonably friendly check in. Rooms are small & bathrooms smaller but well equipped, clean and comfortable. Expensive but seems to be standard for San Francisco.

Room Tip: Great views from the upper floors

Outstanding service and hotel from day one until we left. Extremely helpful and informed concierge who sent us to the BEST little restaurants as we had asked her for her suggestions and wanted to be able to walk. The lobby bar was our favorite spot to regroup and connect with family before we headed out for the night. The happy hour menu was outstanding and the 2 bartenders both named Ray definitely know how to pour a GREAT cocktail! We were on the 19 floor and had 2 corner rooms that once you walked thru the first door there was a shared foyer and then 2 separate doors to the individual rooms. The rooms we're very clean and the bed was heaven!! The bathroom was small but so what!! We would ABSOLUTELY return here and highly recommend after a outstanding Memorial Day weekend with family!

This hotel has an excellent location, right on the corner of Powell and Sutter. There's a cable car stop just outside the door, and Union Square is just about a block away. The area is also full of restaurants and pretty much anything you'd need.

We were on the 16th floor. Traffic noise was audible but not overpowering.

The rooms were clean. The furniture was in good shape. Beds were comfortable. Bedding was nice quality.

Every employee with whom I dealt (two front desk clerks, housekeeping, valet) was super helpful and polite. The doormen here are attentive and friendly.

I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again if I returned to San Francisco.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

I've stayed here probably 40 or 50 nights, and have had great service each time. Rooms are clean, good views, near to good restaurants. The in house restaurant has some decent dishes, although sometimes they go *really* heavy on the salt, to the point that the meal is inedible. The first time I stayed there, they upgraded me to a junior sweet on a corner, with amazing street views (it was low, so I couldn't see the bridges or bay or anything). Every other time, I've had great high up views, but been in MUCH smaller rooms. The bathrooms are so small that they don't have any counter space. That's my biggest complaint.

Located right on the cable car line, this hotel is just steps from great shopping on Powell street and in Union Square. Rooms are nicely updated.. and while the bathrooms may be a bit on the small side, the great showers make up for it. The staff is also SUPER friendly and helpful. If you need help finding anything, be sure to ask for Perri!
