Make sure you pay attention to the type of room. Having to share a communal bathroom with a whole floor was less than ideal

Don’t book
Extremely noisy as the rooms are connected through poorly insulated doors and I could hear normal volume conversation to the detail as if they were in my room ( 1:30 AM). No private bathrooms!!! I would never stay there again.

Not for me..but it may be okay for others....
I stayed at the hotel for a week and would never do it again. The bathrooms are located in the hall and there is only one functioning bathroom per floor. If you are on a tight schedule and have to wait for 20 mins to use the bathroom or shower , its not a good look. There is an all gender bathroom that is always locked. The staff is unfriendly and the rooms can feel very hot since they do not have air conditioning. There is no restaurant, room service, or even wash cloths. Thank goodness for the Walgreens next door.

Shared bathrooms? Seriously? For $200+ a night? Absolutely not.

Clean but could be better... 3 star rating
The room was clean and the location was very convenient regarding close to things to do and to public transportation. However, this hotel needs to do some fix its that would be small details but make huge differences. It did have charm and old San francisco-style, but the toilet lid was broken, rust coming through on the bottom of the tub, old water left in the coffee pot, rub drainbwas hard to keep engaged to drain, very few outlets and most of those that existed were too loose to plug anything into . Rooms are relatively small.
