    The location is excellent. Near to most of the iconic places in SF.

    The room is very small. The bed is not so comfortable, it could have been a better bed.

    The location was great for my work trip in San Francisco. The price was great as well! It looks like it's getting an upgrade next year, that I think will be great! The room was clean and it was all I needed for my trip.

    My room didn't have shampoo, soap or even a drinking cup for water, and the building didn't have any sort of drinks machine. I think with a little more attention to details like that, this hotel could be really great.

    Good location, close to Bart Station. I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast.

    Good location

    Although we booked a room with a queen-size bed, we were given a room with a double bed. The bed was too small and the room too stuffy/hot, so we asked to change rooms. They were booked and refused to switch rooms, so we ended up getting a last-minute hotel room nearby. They gave us the appropriate room the next day - the bed was better, but the window along Fulton St. couldn't close, so it was noisy. There is one elevator, and it is very slow.

    It was fine but nowhere near good

    It was basically in union square. The hotel was cleanly and the front desk staff where friendly. Breakfast was minimal but appreciated.

    It was excruciatingly small. I don't mind a smaller room but I tripped over the bed, chair, and cords many times! The cleaning staff knocked on our door at 9:00 am each morning! Come on, we wanted to sleep in on our vacation!
