With past guests like members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Killers, Phoenix Hotel -- a revamped 1950s motor lodge -- oozes cool. While peace and quiet may not be its forte, the tropical courtyard and heated pool are a great place to take a pair of headphones and drift off for a while.

The sexy on-site restaurant, Chambers Eat + Drink, serves up small bites like truffle ricotta focaccia and delectable entrees, such as hanger steak. Pair these with a sweet bite of dessert and a signature cocktail. Another benefit of this eatery is that you can lounge poolside and order food.

Bungalow-style retro guest rooms are equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi access and come with free parking (one car per room), a rarity in downtown San Francisco.

I liked was the look of the hotel. I liked that it was a local hotel, not a chain.

The hotel was a cute local hotel. But the area was not what I'd expected. There were a lot of homeless people up and down the street. Each time we left or came back to the hotel, there were homeless people right outside. We had to walk through them each time and this was very uncomfortable. Also, our room was right next to a room that said employees only. They were so loud each day and completely disregarded the fact that guests were staying in the room next to them. The main trash bin was right outside of our hotel door so when the staff cleaned out the hotel rooms they dumped the trash in the big trash bin outside our door. One morning, two staff members were tossing what sounded like beer bottles in the bins, they were also talking and laughing very loud while doing this. It woke us up and I had to go and ask them to please keep their voices down. The next few days were the same, I had to keep asking them to be quiet. They would quiet down when I asked but I should not have had to ask.

It's a solid option for people going to San Francisco on a budget. I'm not a fan of the neighborhood but it's a quick uber ride from all the action and the hotel still felt pretty secure. It's nothing fancy but it's a decent place to stay without spending a ton of money.
