We had a great trip at the St. Francis. That being said, there were a few problems, and I do question the value for the price a bit.
Pluses included the beds, the room location (we were on the 28th Floor of the Tower); the size of the room; and the health club.
Negatives included the condition of the room (which could use a slight refresh, particularly the carpet); the noiseproofing, which was surprisingly poor; and the lobby area, which was extremely overcrowded with conventioners, overpriced coffee and food. Again, the negatives were not terrible, but just not in keeping with the purported quality of the hotel and its cost.
A bit about the noise. While the windows kept out street noise well, the neighbors all were audible just talking. I see this as a poor construction issue. It did not intrude too much, except around 5 or so when we wanted to nap while others were getting ready to go out.
All in all, I would recommend the St. Francis as a comfortable, extremely convenient hotel: especially if one can get a discounted price with features like included internet.
