Cable car and Asian art

You can get on the Powell/Hyde cable car at Union Square and ride over Nob Hill and down towards the Bay and Ghirardelli Square, and from there, you can walk east along Fisherman's Wharf. A 15-minute walk away is the Asian Art Museum, which houses an impressive collection.

Diner

Right off the lobby is Mel's Drive-In, a 1950s-style diner where you can enjoy dishes like burgers and fountain shakes. For a workout, you can head to the onsite fitness center.

Staff is so awful! I’d never recommend this hotel!
I can’t say anything about my stay here, because of the rude and argumentative staff, I never checked in.

Nice historical hotel modernized.
We stayed for one nght for an advance screening of a movie nearby. We arrived early, it was raining and was given an early check-in which helped us refresh. The room was newly remodeled and comfortable. The hotel felt safe as you needed a key card to get in or use the intercom. About a mile from the bart station and walking distance to food and beverage also. We would stay again if we were in need of a place in the area. We walked so not sure on the parking situation there. The front desk staff was great.

Good for the minimal traveler
A one night business trip. Location was great, but the hotel was going through some major construction. Close to Tenderloin district so I'd avoid walking down Ellis street, especially late at night, take Market instead. Good for the minimal traveler, excellent overnight parking price for the location.
