This hotel won't win any awards in my book for top-of-the line amazing. However it is mostly clean and very reasonably priced for the area of the city it is in without having to stay at a hostel. Front desk staff have always been attentive...More
Critical reviewers should keep in mind that this is a "budget" hotel in a very desirable (i.e. expensive) location. It's not fancy, but it is convenient, bright, well maintained and clean. I would recommend it and stay there again.
On the plus side:
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.
