The place has great location in the middle of SF. There are very close to cable car so you can explore the whole city from there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They provided us with a map and helped to plan our sightseeing. The room was big enough for staying there for 2 nights with luggage. There was...

Hotel is in a convenient location in Union Square - right next to trolly and transit station. Ask for a room at the back of the hotel, the street side is extremely noisy at night. Also, the continental breakfast is terrible.

This hotel is at good location. We came early in the morning from LV and we felt tried. We needed deposit our luggages and washed face before go out. But the staff allowed us to check-in and had breakfast. We could walk 5min to bart and went to SF airport easily. We are happy to stay here.

The location is fantastic - especially if you want to be doing things in downtown/Union Square area. I was comfortable, the staff I encountered were pleasant & the breakfast was a nice start to the day. I probably wouldn't choose to stay here for more than a couple of days due to the lack of a fridge & microwave (I...

Location is unbeatable. You exit the Hotel and Union Square is few hundred feet to your right. The Tram /cable car starts 2 block to your left on Powell & Market Street. The Hotel is right in the middle of it all. This is not a 4 or 5 star hotel and I wasn't looking for one either but I...

This hotel is what it says it is. Convenient and comfortable. We found the staff to be very helpful, the rooms were very clean and well stocked with hair dryer and toiletries. The continental breakfast was good. (No kitchen for hot cooked English style breakfast tho) The staff were knowledgeable in the area and helped us with regards to going...

We loved staying here. We have a family of 5 - 2 adults & 3 teens so a normal hotel room won't work for us. We stayed in one of the family suites and it was perfect for us. We had 2 rooms, 3 beds, & a bathroom with an extra sink in another room. The staff is super friendly...
