3 comfortable nights in great location
Old hotel, getting ready to close to be refurbished, in great location. Hotel still had charm and was comfortable, relatively clean, and had a friendly and helpful staff. One had to leave curtain open to run window aircondioner. Entrance from street to elevator is almost completely out of view of front desk personnel which was perceived as a security concern. Free Wifi was slow. Faster wifi available at extra charge, which we did not purchase. Bar was great with free glass of wine at happy hour. Coffee was available in AM in lobby. Location near union square was perfect, close to transportation, Chinatown, and trolley. We would stay again.
