I didn't choose 'the Aida, because of price only....
I do travel a lot and I simply don't like the Marriotts and Hiltons of this world. They're boring and overpriced.
Hotels like the Aida have charisma and personality. It's one of the oldest buildings in San Francisco right on the Market Street.
This was my 4th stay in this place. I have to say, it's not getting better :-(
While I still love the style, I wish it would be cleaner. The bed was clean, but the room was a bit smelly. I really would hate to see this place being renewed and ending up in a luxury anonymous Hotel like many others, but I would suggest management to spend a bit more on cleanness, e.g. changing carpets and soft re-new some of the rooms. I likely will go there again when in San Francisco, but that's me - Most of my colleges probably wouldn't stay there for a single night.More
