how were we to know there would be a heat wave mid-October? But, there was , and altho there were ceiling fans and working windows, it was a hot, hot one-night stay. We checked out a day early and went to a big downtown hotel. It is quaint,and cheap, but the rooms are tiny to the point of discomfort. There is a cute little restaurant downstairs that serves breakfast(included). The staff was very helpful, and printed our boarding passes. The neighborhood is central to most things, and a block from the cable car. but- CAVEAT:if you are a family, be forewarned that there is a gay nightclub next door, and this includes an adult "toy store" that is open to the sidewalk. So if your kids want to giggle at the array of butt-plugs on display, this is the place for you. Probably no return stay in our future.
