Its central Union Square location makes this hotel 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.

Desit being over 100 years old, the hotel has a contemporary and stylish vibe with red accents and modern decor. Being that it is in the heart of the city, it can get a bit noisey in the evening hours. Though the hotel does not have a restaurant or bar, there are plenty of options to choose from within walking distance.

Guests can sip free coffee in the lobby each morning before setting off take on the city sights. At the end of the day, venture to the complimentary evening wine hour to hear the soothing sounds of an acoustic guitar player.

From the press:
  • "The lobby gives voice to San Francisco's noir era (appropriate, as Dashiell Hammett once lived here), and it lures visitors to enjoy live music during wine hour" -- Fodor's

It was a small & very friendly hotel, both with staff and other guests. The nightly free wine and live music from 5-6 was great fun!

Stayed a weekend in San Francisco at this hotel. Fantastic location. Easy for using the cable cars, buses, shopping. Very neat and clean. Room a bit petite but no problem. Bed very comfortable. From our room you could hear the cable cars, and hear people walking by. I highly recommend this hotel We will return.

Very disappointed in the room. Rooms and hotel were nothing like the pictures. We actually ended up cancelling our reservation and going to a different hotel in the area. The staff was very accommodating and provided a full refund.
