Lovely, elegant entrance foyer, two great bars and an excellent restaurant, combined with perfet central location make this an ideal place to stay. Being in the Union sqare area means a lot of the city's history and architecture is within easy walking distance. Staff are helpful and pointed out some iconic restaurants. The cable-car goes directly past the hotel and takes you over to the waterfront areas. The room was small but well appointed, and a little noisy at night-not unexpected given the central location. Would definitely stay there again.

Extremely helpful, courteous and pleasant staff. Needed a late checkout after an athletic event. Staff was extremely accommodating. Always felt comfortable and safe. Room was very clean. Mixture of travelers - business, families and athletes in town for a sporting event.

We were pleasantly surprised at how close the hotel was to everything we wanted to do and see...food shopping and sightseeing. The front desk staff was very accommodating since our flight was delayed and we were over 3 hours late checking in. The room was on the smaller side but since we didn't spend much time in our room it was perfect for us. We loved the duvets and the cleanliness of everything.

The hotel itself is situated 1 minutes walk to Market Street where most of the shopping is located the convenience itself is a plus. The staff is really fantastic they give guest the feel of home especially for a first time guest of the city their service in my opinion surpass the 5 stars hotel.
As to safety the area in general there are a lot of homeless people asking for money and cigarette you just have to be polite and reject them no need to be mean or aggressive towards them mind you there is also 5 star hotel in the same area but the hotel staff really do their part by not letting non guest to enter the hotel which includes the use of their toilets. I would strongly advice family visitors do not let their children roam about in the nights.
If you need a cab let the front desk know so that they get their regular/trusted cab drivers to service you but as most of the things are nearby the only time you may need the cab is to the airport.
