Fun hotel!
I stayed a few days in this hotel with my mom. We were visiting friends and just enjoying ourselves in the beautiful City of San Francisco. The hotel was great, absolutely the best service EVER! Room and bathroom were very clean, hotel overall was fantastic. The neighborhood didn't bother us too much as we took rides with UBER all over the City and only stayed at the hotel to sleep and change but I could see how if you were looking for a local coffee shop or a local restaurant, the immediate neighborhood is a little sketchy. They did make up for it with their service, the free nightly Happy Hour and live music every evening and the restaurant was fabulous, very good food!
