Front desk people were pretty solid and the lobby is nice, but you interact with them no more than a few times and you're not staying in the lobby. The room is OK, but not worth the price. Towels were frayed, it was just kind of dirty, and dark most of the day (granted I had a third floor room with a direct view of a roof and industrial AC units, so light just wasn't going to make it there). Hot water also apparently comes through the city, so good luck having a good shower in the morning. Paid just over $1,000 after taxes for three nights on a business trip and would not do that again, _especially_ had I been paying for myself. The biggest issue is that the area was _rough_. I grew up going to San Francisco pretty regularly (15-20 years ago) back when I lived in California and it wasn't as bad as it is now (likely why a large hotel and the mall nearby just walked away from their loans). I've walked around in some questionable cities all over the world, but I definitely wouldn't go out very far around here, especially at night. Property is definitely going to reply with their "thanks for your feedback" message, but I doubt they'll actually do anything to address the low reviews here :)

Cool hotel in an old building with great decor. My room was ok'ish. Properly cleaned, but he carpet was dirty as h**l and there were some silverfish in the bathroom in the morning, so keep bags off the floor and closed. Very gentle and nice staff, food gym,water stations and lounge with fireplace burning was big plus.
