Great hotel! Staff was helpful & friendly. Room was so cute, clean & spacious. The Redwood Room bar was excellent as well!

Poor 2.0
Horrible Experience!
I was highly disappointed at my stay at this hotel. Our checkin was the most unwelcoming checkin considering this is supposed to be some big fancy resort. My friends and I felt discriminated against and felt very uncomfortable at this hotel. Not to mention the area around the hotel was less than stellar. The area surrounding the hotel was very sketchy. The cleaning staff didn’t clean our room one day and came late at night while we were in the room to clean and restock our towels. I will never return to this hotel nor will I EVER recommend anyone stay there.

Good 6.0
Beautiful interior but run down.
I like the architecture, interior design and location. I would prefer to stay in the rooms I usually stay. The hotel was not able to comply with this. Also the rooms are not 100 % clean and and the bed springs are used. Regular internet is slow, for double speed hotel wants to get paid.

Good 6.0
Could have been better
Overall this hotel was very average. The hotel itself was a bit outdated and the location was ok. It was close to union square and all of the shops but was a bit of a way from fisherman’s wharf and chinatown. Parking was expensive considering the garages in that area are about $30 cheaper per night and the it took the valet 25 minutes to get our car and he showed up with the wrong one.
