Great hotel in SF
Excellent hotel perfectly placed in the city for all transport routes including the cable teams. Excellent location for restaurants and places to eat.

Excellent Location
Near the Powell Station and within walking distance of many areas. The pictures on Google street are old and did not reflect the current atmosphere. The area seemed vibrant and relatively "safe". This is a great property for lone travelers or a couple on a short trip who just need a place to sleep. The hotel is bare bones and my room was small with a very small bathroom and shower. Your key is required to run the temp controls in the room. Other than that, the room and property are pretty clean and quiet and the staff was friendly.

8/10 Very good

Central and cozy, lacks storage
I opted to stay here over the hotel hosting the conference I was attending just a few blocks away. The room was small (as expected) but modern and very clean. The bathroom was a big surprise with a huge shower, great water pressure, and a really large and well lit mirror space. I also appreciated how card access was needed not just to enter the lobby space but room levels as well. Nice TV with a decent variety of channels and the bed was lovely. My only complaint was the lack of storage. There was no dresser, standing racks, or even under the bed drawers. The simple addition of this amenity would have bumped this review to a full 5 stars. While a small room, there were areas that could have been used. Without an iron and only a few knobs for hanging clothes it was a bit inconvenient for a business trip. That said, would absolutely return for a leisure trip.
