The hotel is in walking distance to a lot of amenities, great location. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Now, walls are very thin, and you can hear everything. The bedroom was very clean but it had a funky smell... like wet carpet or so. We did stay there for 3 nights and I mean we just came to...

Great hotel with reasonable prices. The room was very spacious and fresh and the staff was very friendly and gave good recommendations when we asked for advice. The location of the hotel was also very central and was a good take-off point for all of our activities. Also very close to some great restaurants and breakfast places.

The staff were kind and friendly. The room (a Deluxe Queen Room) was spacious, clean, with a refrigerator and complementary coffee and tea caps. The location was very good as it was by the Union Square. Though we have to mention that below Ellis Str. there were some homeless people, who didn't pose a threat.

This is a wannabe Ace Hotel, with one key difference - the Ace Hotels are real hotels. I paid an obscenely high rate to stay here (over $800/night), but this is basically an airbnb with a nice lobby. The staff have no idea what they're doing. They repeatedly called my room insisting that I was supposed to be checking out...

Great boutique hotel in the heart of downtown San Francisco. The hotel has recently been completely upgraded with a well appointed renovation. The food is amazing and the Douglas Room is one of the best bars in the city.

Entering the hotel set the pace for my entire stay. Most pleasant and attentive door man made you feel like everyone was waiting just for you inside, front desk was happy, sincere and welcoming - not an overbearing fake greeting, housekeeping so very pleasant, morning latte in the cafe was exceptional, and I was lucky enough to taste test food...

I loved the clean and simple feel of the room. And it is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on ! Very friendly and helpful staff.
