Great location. Convenient to coffee and food. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Managers and housekeeping staff greeted me in the hallways. However, I was underwhelmed by the room itself based on the price and the 4-star Trip Advisor rating. The shower was dirty and things I expected to be clean were dingy. Despite having multiple signs indicating towels left on...

Great staff, had room with a nice view "403", but air conditioner could not cool the room. We requested a frig when we got there, no charge. Room was nice, large and clean. Just bathroom needed some counter space. Had to use window sile. Included breakfast, the waffles were good. Had washer and dryers on every floor.

I'm so disappointed with this hotel and the amount I forked out to stay here. We believed the hotel had free parking. That was one of the reasons we chose to stay there.

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
