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!

Really comfy and cosy feel. Loved the decor and enjoyed spending time in the communal areas. Free breakfast and tea/coffee was an added bonus. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The program of events was also a plus for us. We took part in the free China Townwalking tour and this was a definite highlight of our stay in SF!
