I loved the fact that so much of the original architecture is still in place. The staff was friendly, and it was remarkably quiet given the location. It was a great value in an expensive city!

Great location, easy to find. Rooms were decent sizes and showers always had hot water. Free breakfast every morning (though only pancakes and coffee.) if you just want a bed to sleep in this place does the job for a reasonable price for San Francisco.
