Can't rave enough! We'll be back!!!
Pretty amazing hotel! Walking distance to Bella Lucca pizza and gelato. Best crepe place, one block on Post. Great 24 hour restaurant end of the block toward Union Station called Pinecrest!

Weekend with hubby and 15 year old.
Long weekend away with our teenage daughter. I had been to this hotel in the past for dinner and drinks. Location is great for Union Square. Hotel is getting "tired" looking upstairs. Mini blinds were SO dusty. Bathroom needs a magnification mirror and better counter space! Good for 2 people, we were 3. Wished the gimmicky credits were just taken off the bill at the end. Also would have wished for HGTV channel.

Fantastic, Friendly Staff and Comfortable Room
The hotel is lovely. And personally, I love the decor. The 2-queen bed room was very comfortable. The staff at the hotel are extraordinary. Upon check-in, the front desk person, Heather, was super friendly asking which room on which floor we'd prefer. The head of housekeeping, Seleste, was phenomenal as we left a laptop in the safe. The security team/front desk was also helpful as the room next door was quite loud multiple times and the staff did a great job trying to stop their noise.
