Reasonable price/quality for San Fransisco
Very nice, simple hotel. Overpriced (2 night accommodation minus breakfast cost overall $500), but it is the global problem in San Francisco. I've spent quite time searching for accommodation there and balancing prince and comfort. It's rather far from venter. Even being a got family we are overestimated a challenge - about one hour walk on steep streets at 30 C was challenging to repeat it. But trams and buses are frequent and convenient

This is a lovely little hotel. The people who work there were great and we had an incredible view of the city.

Make sure you stay upstairs!
First room on ground floor was tiny and dungeon-like. We moved upstairs to a lovely room with an excellent view.

A nice central location for all things SF.
The neighborhood was clean, safe, quiet, and rides via Lyft to most of the "tourist" destinations were always quick and fairly inexpensive. We did not make use of public transit, but the location appears to have great access to that. The room was very clean and well appointed. The front desk staff was always extremely friendly, and the morning muffins and afternoon cookies were a nice touch. I was pretty disappointed in the WiFi service. There are three tiers, one free and two premium tiers. The free tier was quite slow and only allowed one device at a time - when we would log in with one device, any other device was disconnected. The premium tiers allowed for additional devices, but the cost seemed unreasonable ($9 and $12 per night I believe). I had higher expectations for a luxury hotel in a tech-heavy area. Overall, I think the accommodations were reasonable for the price. I would stay again.

Not clean, avoid.
Dirty bathroom. Pillow smelled of perfume. Cramped toilet area. Towels left fuzzies.
