We really enjoyed our stay. The room was right-sized for the two of us and we thought the whole building was well-appointed. The room and bathroom were very well decorated and appointed. We loved the robes. The on-site bar was stellar, be sure and visit!

The hotel itself is good for the price. Cool custom furniture, nice design details, historic feeling and pretty cozy. If you are looking for something perfectly crisp and new feeling, stay at a bigger chain hotel. This is a 100+ year old building in downtown SF, so keep your expectations reasonable. I mainly wanted to speak to the professionalism and care of the hotel manager. I inquired about a concern (it ended up having nothing to do with the hotel), and he was super responsive, caring and professional.
