Nice but don’t bring a car.

Very nice, but hotel has no parking. Nearby parking garage is outrageously expensive. Street parking in the general area is available, but lots of bums in the streets makes it kinda risky.

Clean, comfortable, but a bit noisy

Pros: Proximity to attractions we were seeking; clean, comfortable, good bar, near BART.
Cons: The room took awhile to cool down, but I'm not sure how you'd improve that and conserve energy at the same time.
Location: Great location, BART is just a few steps away. Chez Panisse is a 15-minute walk.
We got a corner room on the second floor. We live in the country, so to be fair, it was a bit noisy for us. I could have asked for a different room. The drapes did a pretty good job of noise dampening. The room was a nice size, with a comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. Room service for breakfast was good. The temperature control was a bit fussy, but eventually cooled the room to a very comfortable level. We did not eat in the restaurant, although we did have some nice drinks and bar food. We were surprised that the bar switched off liquor at 11:30pm I think, and served only beer.

Over priced with a great view of homeless people

First room we booked was smaller than a motel 6 room but costs $250 a night in the middle of the week. I complained of the room size and did get a upgrade to a slightly bigger room but they made me pay $10 more, I would not have stayed at this hotel but it was late and the wife and kids were tired. When we finally laid down to relax and watch some TV, only 5 channels worked, I called the front desk and was told no one was on duty that knew how to fix the TV, add insult to injury.
