"Sherry in a bottle "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 12, 2019 NEW
Visiting SF I decided to stay somewhere slightly away from the convention centre but still only 10 minutes walk away. This place is right off union square and in the mix of things but still offers a bit of tranquility. Rooms are clean and quiet. I loved the coffee service on my floor and good staff. The only thing I would like to see improved is the shower: rather disappointing but I am told this is due to the age of the building. All in all I would recommend and stay there again. Ohhh. Hot tea and a glass of sherry for guests in reception all afternoon

My co-worker and I had booked a room at this hotel 2mos ago for a nursing conference being held in SF. When we arrived at the hotel we were told that they had given our room away without even contacting us! There was a mixup with the card that they had on file. My friend was never called or notified that the card was declined (she would've put it on another card no problem). They refused to help us find another hotel and were very rude to us! Horrible - don't go to this hotel unless you 're ok with poor service!

I booked this hotel months in advance for a business conference and when I arrived at the hotel at 7 pm they informed me that my reservation had been cancelled. My booking confirmation said that my room required full payment at time of booking with no refunds or cancellations available. Apparently, I had reserved the room with a credit card that the bank cancelled and had reissued due to some merchant fraud and when they attempted to charge it the day of arrival it was declined. Things like this happen but the hotel NEVER contacted me that there was a problem so that I could give them a new credit card. When I asked to speak to the manager they gave me the same story "Our policy is you need to have an active credit card available". I then asked if they could help me get a room at a nearby hotel and their response was no. Eventually he was going to pull up a type of website and I said don't bother. Customer service was horrible! It appears that their no refunds, no cancellation policy only applies when it is convenient for them!!

The hotel lived up to all the expectations after reading reviews online prior to booking. It is situated in a very convenient location, there are many restaurants, cafe's and high end shops within walking distance. It is less than $10 by Uber/Lyft to get to the Fisherman's Wharf area, or you can walk it at a brisk pace in 20/25 minutes. The hotel has an old school art deco style, but nothing feels outdated from the furniture in the lobby to the fittings in the room. It was not difficult to come by a good nights rest, the hotel is generally quiet, and the bed's were extremely comfortable. The rooms were kept clean and tidy on a daily basis The staff were friendly and helpful when needed, and would always greet you on walking in and out of the hotel. At the price we paid for our room compared to those in the same area it proved to be extremely good value for money. I certainly would be happy to return to the hotel should I go back to San Francisco in the coming years.

We choose to stay at this hotel as it was close to union square and very central. The cable car run from just outside this hotel to fisherman’s wharf. The hotel and staff where very good and helpful. The hotel has quite a lot of character. The room we had was very good. The hotel overall was in a good location and was reasonably priced for San Francisco. There was a tour operator about 2 doors away that done tours which was convenient for people staying at the hotel and most of the tour buses went from outside this hotel
