    The location is not too bad (Market Street) the loby and the history of the hotel Lot of homeless people but this is sfo

    I would not recommend the hotel for the following reasons: 1/ Prepare to wait for 45 minutes for checking in 2/ Prepare to take the stairs with all your luggage because of the lack of elevator. They are all the time crowded 3/ We had to change 4 times to get a normal room (without the ice vending machine nearby) after that they gave us a ridiculously small room and then a room with a view on a wall. 4/ The starbucks inside the hotel is a joke, over crowded all day long impossible to get a breakfast without 30 mn waiting time 5/ The "fast" wireless internet acces reminds me of the speed of internet in 1996 6/ the rooms are old fashioned 7/ The hotel is really noisy you can hear everything from the others rooms 8/ We were woke up at 8 AM by the cleaning service 9/ OVERRATED for the service provided

    It's a great price, staff are always friendly and a perfect location.

  • Single

    Size of the rooms! Heaps of space to relax after a 10 hour flight!

    The toilet automatically flushing at 3am

  • Couple
    7.0

    The building interior decor was fantastic, the bed was very comfortable, the location suited our needs

    The bathroom could use some updating

  • Single
    5.4

    relatively cheap rate for what you get.

    Neighborhood is a bit sketchy, but convenient and not too far from good restaurants, shopping, etc. WiFi is horrible. It's free but unusable if you need to work. They should either upgrade it or at least offer a for-fee option that works.

  • Couple
    5.0

    It opened in 1916 and the antique decor was elegant which I quite liked. And the staff was very friendly.

    I have to say that the price was quite steep, the rooms very small, and the location was not the nicest. The area in which the hotel is located was dirty and there were lots of homeless people in the vicinity. Also, parking was $35/day which was too high in my opinion.

  • Couple
    6.2

    We liked that the hotel was a block away from the bart transit Civic Center transit stop. We liked the idea of a historic hotel more than actually staying there. The hotel was close to bus lines that brought us to other areas that we enjoyed more - Mission District, etc. And, it's directly across the street from the Orpheum (great if you're going to a concert) and other music venues.

    There were a lot of homeless people hanging around on the one block walk from the Civic Center bart stop. The facilities were consistent with those of a historic hotel. If you want clean and up to date comfort, this may not be for you (...but it is a historic hotel...duh).

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    The location, near the theater. Also great food at the restaurant.

    The fact our reservation was "lost" because our name was misspelled. And the staff acted like we were nuts.

  • Single
    6.2

    Near bart station, near shops.

    Very weak Wi-Fi signal. Breakfast not included in price. Toilet flush did not work properly. Bellmann behaved strangely (answered by singing).

  • Single
    7.0

    The victorian style character.

    Bathroom clean, but old and worn; could do with a refurbishment.

  • Single
    6.6

    The Internet connection was worthless and therefore I won't be back.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    I liked the historic aspect of the hotel. I like old buildings with history.

    Room was very small. I realize this often goes with the territory when staying in an historic hotel, however it was very small.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The helpful and very courteous staff and the excellent breakfast.

    The noise of the air conditioning unit.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    It was easy to get to, old fashion hotel, heavy wood, it was like being in a movie, like the "Shinning" or "Inception".

    The room only had four electrical outlets.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    They changed the sheets.

    Staff do not care about people waiting in line. Valet takes a while to get your car back when you need it.
