Stay was ok. But Hotel is old fashioned. Rooms very small. People are friendly and Service without complain. Price was very high compared to what you get. Area is also not so nice. A lot of homeless People everywhere in the City.

Grande dame aging sadly and comically
Grande dame that is not aging well and the renovation interventions they did look like queen Elizabeth as styled by britney spears. The place needs a complete gut overhaul. I've stayed at alot of Kimpton hotels and I'd never guess this was one of them. Tired and off brand.

Run!!!!!
Dirty, old, unprepared, over priced, I could go on. Arrived at 1 was told the rooms were not ready and would be guaranteed by 3. Back at 3:45 one ready one not. Bet if I checked out 45 minutes late they wouldn’t like it. Front desk really didn’t care much. Paid more for a “deluxe room” with city view. Out my window is another hotel wall. Waste of money. My college dorm bathroom was nicer and cleaner. Be prepared to wait a long time for an elevator and EVERYONE was complaining about that. Walls and windows paper thin and we could hear every sneeze in the next room. Would never ever stay here again. Thanks for ruining my SF trip gimmick MOTEL
