While the hotel is over 100 years old and may show a bit of its age, its central Union Square location makes it a great jumping off point for exploring all of the shops in the area, experiencing fine dining or going to the theater to see a show. With a Powell Street address, the property is the perfect location for hopping on the cable car or other public transit options (BART and Muni) to take on San Francisco. Like many older San Francisco hotels, this hotel is not equipped with air conditioning in the rooms. 

Being in the heart of the city it can get a bit noisy in the evening hours. There is no restaurant or bar but there are plenty of options to choose from within walking distance.

As it’s so difficult to find affordable lodging in SF I still recommend this hotel. It’s affordable (ish) but the rooms I encountered did not warrant even the Travelzoo price. Staff is friendly and helpful. Location is good.
Other Comments
Coffee pods (kuerig) never replenished. Initially given a room that was really hot and stuffy (room 420 king bed). Room didn’t have thermostat, fan or a/c. Requested another room with an air system. Was assigned room 407 which I do not recommend at all. Room had a window a/c unit but BOTH control knobs were broken. Could NOT change fan speed or temperature. Spent a very uncomfortable 3 nights. Also, room was downgraded from king to 2 doubles. Window shade did not cover the full window so there was light shining in the room all night.

Communicate with house cleaning about needs of room occupants. Our room had two adults but had to call down every day for a second towel and washcloth. Buts was always delivered promptly.
