Fantastic place to stay

Upgraded myself to a Junior Suite room which was great, glad I did as I saw the other rooms and they were a lot smaller. Man at Reception recommended a great Italian very close, ate there twice. Wine and cheese afternoon at 4pm great social time with other guests. Coffee at b/fast very good, also had fruit and pastries.

Business Trip

The Hotel is in a good location close to Union Square and 15 minutes walk to the Moscone Convention Center. The in room facility a poor, our party stayed in rooms 410 and 409, 410 been a "Junior Suite". While tea was supplied no means of boiling water was. Breakfast is very much pastry and muffins and the same every morning. Good Wine and cheese afternoons in the hall. The room are very well worn, in need of redecorating and a total refit.Please note we did inform reception of our concerns. Unless it is renovated I could not recommend this hotel.

Good value

An excellent stay, well run hotel. (As a note, your requirement that one MUST enter comments here is very aggravating and probably insures that I will never rate a hotel again.)

I was generally pleased by the

I was generally pleased by the hotel for a business trip in the Union Square area. There was a combination of business men an tourists at the hotel. The hotel room was clean and pleasant for the extremely attractive price for similar hotels in the area. It was a little noisy at nice due to some activity in the neighborhood but I would use the hotel again for a trip to the area. The wine and cheese at the end of the day and the small but adequate continental breakfast were nice advantages to staying at this hotel.

Very goog localization, walking

Very goog localization, walking distance to the Union Square. It`s an old hotel, but the room is big, and has breakfast included. Not so quiet....you can here the street noise..... but nothing that you can`t sleep. I would come back here because of the localization and price!

Very ordinary hotel. Hallway carpet

Very ordinary hotel. Hallway carpet was smelly, furnishings old, room small, no proper working shower head. Location very good for walking towards Union Square and the turnaround. Wine and cheese in the afternoon was a nice thought but not professionally presented

Hotel is well located and breakfast

Hotel is well located and breakfast provided is basic continental but nonetheless sufficient. Serrvice was excellent and hotel was old but clean and friendly. Due to hotel age hotel is quite noisy and pipes often disturb you. Pipes are very load at 5:30am for about 10 minutes so expect to be woken!!! I would recommend the hotel for short stay guests given excellent location and reasonable price.
