We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights last week. We were so please with this hotel, we had never been to SF before. We walked to the hotel from the BART station on Powell/Market Streets. It was about 6 blocks and only the last block was very steep. The neighborhood was nice and safe. I was also surprised at how quiet it was at night. We were in a room at the back our first two nights, it was extremely quiet. The last 3 nights we were at the front of the hotel, and there was a minimal amt of street noise, but nothing to keep a person awake.
We had a room with shared bath the first 2 nights, and it was clean, very clean and right outside the door to our room. Our other room with our own bath had a great clawfoot tub, and lots of HOT water, I had a great soak. The beds and pillows were nice and comfy in each room, with soft down-like comforters in each, just perfect for the cool nights in February.
Breakfast: Breakfast was from 8am-10:30am each morning, it was croissants, muffins, juice, and coffee. The almond croissants were the BEST!! The coffee was so good too. We just sat down in the parlor and it wasn't long and we were served warm croissants and muffins, and the hot coffee.
Tea: Tea was served from 4:00-6:30, it was also pleasant. They had homemade cookies, not just store-bought dough, but actual homemade cookies. They were great, and the hot tea was perfect.
Service: The staff each day was perfect, I have nothing bad to say about anyone. They were all sweet and pleasant. Everyone (other customers) we met here was having such an enjoyable time. We kept commenting to each other about coming back to this hotel and recommending it to people. We had our 1 year old with us and the staff was so patient, kind and helpful. We had a great time.
