cannot even stop a car near the bldg to load/unload luggage. Have to haul everything to the corner - major irritant. Bldg’s being renovated took away conveniences - no clock in the room, not even a soda on the premises. The renovations are nice where they are complete.

Cool Vintage Hotel

Pros: The character and history. Reminds me of the Hotel Del.
Cons: Free water system is nice, but would be good to have 2 water bottles to start out with, so you don’t have to go out of your room initially to get H20.
Location: Great access to shopping, restaurants, BART.
This is a lovely historical hotel near Powell Street and Union Square. We picked it because we needed to be close to BART coming from OAK. The service was fabulous. We arrived early, hoping to just store our bags while we had an appointment across town. They actually gave us an upgraded room that was available at that time! What a nice surprise. If you love historic hotels, this one is for you. It is quirky, with the vestiges of yesteryear (painted piping overhead, vintage radiators, door frames and woodwork that are obviously original) on full display. The beds were sparkling white and clean, which is the most important thing for me. If tiny details like old grout in the bathroom, or vintage original bathtubs bother you, then maybe not for you, but I could imagine the history and the stories the walls would tell if they could. The original stairways within are beautiful (of course there is an elevator!) Everyone was helpful and nice. We would definitely stay there again.
