Our room was overlooking Market Street. It was fun to watch the city go by, especially the cable cars when we were resting. While Market Street is not in the best area, there is security on-site 24/7.
The lobby is quite lovely with its rich mahogany woodwork, Austrian crystal chandeliers, Tiffany glass, Italian marble floors, and polished brass fixtures.
The rooms are clean, but nothing spectacular stood out about them.
The fixtures are dated, and the bathrooms are small with no real counter space.
The hotel does provide free Wi-Fi, but the connection was not available in our room, so that was a colossal disappointment! A girl needs her Wi-Fi.
Concierge did help me arrange Lorrie’s Shuttle Service back to the airport, so that was easy. The cost was $17.00, which was reasonable. It was lucky, however, that I am an early-bird because the shuttle was more than 15 minutes late on a Monday morning so plan ahead!
I am not sure exactly what this room would have cost for the four days I was in San Francisco. I was lucky enough to stay there at no cost when my friend was undergoing two weeks of training for an IT company.
This is a budget friendly hotel where you can be comfortable for a few days while in the city, but nothing extravagant or upscale.
