"The location of Powell was epic. I was literally in the best part o downtown/union square. Steps from my hotel was some of the best shopping and restaurants. The hotel has been well maintained, for being a bit older....but I feel thats part of the SF charm. Staff was very friendly and accommodated all my needs as well as gave me great tips on where to eat. You can't beat the value of this hotel for the price...i had free breakfast and coffee each morning, and every evening they host a FREE wine and beer reception. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone and look forward to visiting again. "

"My wife and I had reservations through OTA for 4 nights in the third week of October, 2013. I was apprehensive to stay here based on several reviews, but made the choice to stay because of the location and price. We were NOT disappointed in any facet of the stay. We arrived early and were given a room immediately. I asked for a larger room away from the front street and the wish was met. We attended the evening beer/wine gathering on two occasions. Many selections of beer, crackers, cheeses, etc. were offered. The gentleman in charge of the evening beer event and the morning continental breakfast does his best to make sure all goes well. One must realize that eggs, ham, hashbrowns, sausage, fruits etc. are not provided. But rolls, muffins, juices, coffee, tea are. If this is not your 'cup of tea'...many nearby cafés will provide what you want. Every staff person was friendly. Maid and towel service was provided daily. Cleanliness was found throughout the room. I bought the Alcatraz package through OTA prior to leaving. This included the boat trip to the rock and audio tour...one of the best audio tours we have ever heard and we have listened to many in Europe. This package also included 48 hours of the Big Bus Hop On/ Hop Off. This was a great way to see the areas of the city. We took advantage of the nonstop night tour as well. The day tour takes two plus hours if you ride it straight through, and the night tour lasts 90 minutes. The guides were knowledgable. I purchased a week MUNI pass at the Walgreen store near the hotel....$28 for each of us. You are to scratch off the month and the days that you paid to use the pass. You have unlimited passage on the cable cars ($6 each way); and the same unlimited travel with the MUNI electric buses, as well as the antique streetcars. The 3 day pass was $22, but we wanted to use the system all 4 days we were there. I suppose you could sell your pass for $10 or so if you had a few days left. I just gave our two passes to the front desk and asked them top please pass forward the use of the last three days of the passes. Three walking tours of North Beach, of Chinatown, and the Barbary Coast are offered in the price of the Big Bus tickets. These hour and a half tours were super. We spent a lot of time in North Beach's Italian neighborhood and Chinatown. The Oriental Pearl in Chinatown and Tony's Pizza in North Beach are recommendations. For a great Italian seafood restaurant, go to Sotto Mare on Green Street...off Columbus. Hollywood Cafe on NorthPoint, near the wharf, was excellent for breakfast. The 'Marilyn Monroe' comes with French toast and all the fresh fruit you will ever need in a day. Their omelettes are excellent as well. One other restaurant worth mentioning is the Crab House at Pier 39. We ordered the crab chowder and crab Louie. Lunches and dinners at restaurants can easily run $50-90 depending on drinks. John's Steak House near the Powell was highly recommended. The Jazz Club across the street from the steak house was recommended for breakfast as well. I do not write reviews, but because I have relied on the reviews of others, I felt a 'professional obligation' to do one. The only negative, would be taking the Super Shuttle from SFO to the hotel and the ensuing return trip. One needs to decide if they want to be packed into a 7-8 seat van and make trips to 3-5 different hotels prior to being deposited at your hotel. The same holds true for returning to the airport. If it doesn't make any difference to you how many pick ups you make before going to the airport, then this is for you. The shuttle staff were great, on time, and did what they advertised...no complaint there. However, Next time, I may look into BART or the price of a cab."

"Very old hotel, simple accommodations - more what one expects to see in Europe. Absolutely perfect location, and very affordable. It does have an unpleasant odor, and no AC. Of course, we were there during the one heat wave the City will have this decade, but staff provided us with a portable fan that helped make the room comfortable along with the opened bathroom window. Breakfast is very minimal and cocktail hour is only Monday through Thursday. No luxury here, but if you are interested in location & price, this is a great choice."

"This hotel offered really excellent value. Low price to start with, free breakfast and cocktail hour and superbly convenient location. Staff was very helpful and always polite. Rooms ARE old but clean and our bath had a tub and plenty of hot water -- we were given a two-room 'suite' so did not have one of the smaller rooms. Easy walk to great shopping, Chinatown -- a hike to the wharf but we managed it. Then, reverted to stepping out the door and onto a cable car or another form of city transportation -- liiterally just feet away from the hotel entrance. Very happy with price and actually enjoyed the 'historic' feel of the hotel although carpet in our room was ready to be replaced. Daily room cleaning wasn't up to chain standards but was certainly adequate. Would return."
