San Francisco prices are high. This was a good value. The room was smaller than we normally stay at, but everything was very nice.

Staff was remarkably friendly

It was wonderful. The location is great, right by Union Square. The hotel is beautifully redecorated and very tasteful. The bed was so comfortable! We slept so well during our stay. The room was small, which is typical of a historic hotel, but this was ok given how top notch every other aspect was. I will definitely return.
