My partner and I stayed for 5 nights. Overall the hotel is nice and our room was comfortable. The starbucks in the lobby was a bonus. The hotel is very traditional, styled like it would have been back in the 1800's which was nice however the hallways where a bit dark and spooky. I wouldn't recommend eating in the hotel restaurant as the menu is limited, the food was okay but the service was poor and to be honest disappointing.
The location has its good points and bad. It's good because it's on Market street and only a few blocks from a major shopping district. Also there is a bus stop and tram stop just outside the front door of hotel which will take you straight to Fishermans Wharf for $2. The metro and 'Bart' systems are also outside the door.
The locations bad points are ... There are a great deal of homeless people in the area but we found that's the case in most big American cities. We would make sure that we were back at the hotel before dusk or we would catch a taxi. We didn't feel 100% safe after dark in the streets surrounding the hotel. Moving on ... Wireless was free but don't count on it, sometimes the connection was poor.
Overall we recommend the hotel for its price not location.
