Close to Chinatown, cable car right in front.

The location of the hotel was quite convenient. We had one glitch that wasn't really adequately addressed by the hotel staff. We had booked a single room with two double beds online, but on arriving we were told there were no more rooms like that available. The hotel staff asked us how many people would be sleeping in the room, I said four, and they agreed to upgrade us to a studio suite and bring in a roll-away bed for no extra charge, but that only accommodated three people. We were left to figure out how to use the single roll-away for two people instead of one, using chairs and pillows and having our 16- and 13-year-olds sleep sideways. They were not especially comfortable. I don't know why the system allowed us to book a room with two double beds if they weren't available. This was disappointing, as was the proposed solution.

Rooms were not what I expected based on Hotel Rating and room description. Bed was uncomfortable. Hotel tried to accommodate us to different room- but bed was the same in all rooms.

Amazing location!!

This was my wife and I first time visiting San Francisco. We were a little overwhelmed getting to the hotel but when we arrived every aspect of our stay was amazing and we could not have been more impressed. Immediately greeted when we pulled up, they took care of the car and luggage, as well as offer complimentary wine! This hotel is in a great location in San Francisco, it's a quick trolley ride to any major attraction in the area (which pick up is right across from the entrance). Will definitely stay here again if we ever come back to San Francisco!

Overall just ok

Pros - nice bright big room with a nice view, an easy walk to most attractions, and a friendly staff. Cons - uncomfortable bed, loud at night due to the cable cars, the inexpensive earplugs the hotel provided didn't help. I'm also not sure how well they cleaned the room. There was a cookie crumb left on the floor that wasn't swept up for the three days I was there (I left it to see if it was ever going to be removed). Overall, it wasn't a horrible experience, but I can't give it an A+.

Great neighborhood. Likely the most reasonably priced large hotel in the area when you consider that surrounding this hotel you'll find an Intercontinental, Ritz-Carlton, and The Fairmont. Close enough to Montgomery BART if you don't mind some SF hills.

Great hotel centrally located

Beautiful hotel but Ezra feed that you find out about after you check in. Charge for s package I didn't use because it was a leisure visit not business. Valet is great but expensive 55 per day with no other choice unless you want to walk blocks to public parking. Breakfast is pricey

Nice hotel at the top of the hill. very steep walk

Pros: Large room, good beds, free wifi, good restaurant, helpful staff, extremely clean
Cons: price
Location: easy access to san fransisco. on 2 cable car routes (they only run every 15-20 mins so it can be a long wait). a very steep walk to restaurants
Great hotel, all in excellent condition. at top of the hill with a really steep walk from all directions. very friendly and helpful staff. small restaurant/bar with good selection of food if you don't want to go out. good restaurants nearby if you can climb hills.
