Nice hotel but..Posted Jul 27, 2014
the room was very cold. Staff checked the t-stat but was still cold. I set the heater on 85 degrees but it was at best 70 in the room. Everything else was good.

Broken TV,shower, slow front desk otherwise nicePosted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: was nice, clean.
Cons: staff front desk better. QA the rooms - TV & shower shouldnt have had issues.
TV required engineer visit. I did not have time to address the broken shower head - it barely worked and if they dont fix it the next guests will have issues too. Front desk was slow to answer phones, and while in front of them, they seemed understaffed as the front desk folks were constantly answering phones.

Convenient if you only want to see JapantownPosted Jul 16, 2014
Pros: They had a nice garden. Front Desk people were very pleasant and helpful.
Cons: The bed was not the most comfortable. Staff should comprehend English and communicate clearly. Quoting parking rates is not communicating.
Location: Walk through the mall and local restaurant areas. Avoid the street people the City has in abundance. The streets of San Francisco are still dirty.
The room was a very nice Japanese motif. Loved the Japanese tub but the shower head splashed water all over. There is no curtain over the tub, just the washroom's glass door. Put the bath rug outside of the glass door. The bed was not the most comfortable, and I have been in a lot of hotels through business travel!

Minor issues but nice place overallPosted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: Nice location. Japan town is clean and safe with plenty of retaurants within walking distance. Staff was cordial.
Cons: Spruce up the rooms. New faucets would be nice. Could use more water pressure. Need A/C in every room.
Location: Cafe Murano perfect for breakfast. Good sushi joints nearby. There was also a jazz festival on Fillmore street which looked cool.
The staff was very kind and helpful. They recommended a wonderful little breakfast joint within walking distance called Cafe Murano. Lots of Japanese food restaurants in the vicinity. You will need a car for access to tourist attractions in SF. Hotel is nice enough but a bit run down. No ventilation of any kind in our room. I was told to leave the sliding door open a crack which actually did the trick. They offered to relocate us to another wing but we were already settled. In my opinion any 3-4 star hotel should have A/C in EVERY room. Parking was cheap at $23 nightly compared to other SF hotels. I tried to save money one night by parking on the curb and got ticketed $66 because I didn't notice the sign for "street cleaning on Tues, Thurs, Sunday 6am-8am." Stick with the parking garage which actually takes you right to the hotel elevator. All in all a decent hotel, good for the money.

Nice but smallPosted Jul 6, 2014
Pros: cleanness, comfort
Cons: Add a door separating bathroom and bedroom
Location: It is located at Japan town. We went to see the Jazz festival one morning.
We stayed here for just 1 night after watching the July 4th fireworks. The hotel is extremely clean. Everything looks nice except one small detail. There is no door separating the shower/bath and the bedroom. We have a family of 4. My wife and two kids went to bed earlier while I stayed a little late. There was no way to use the shower and bathroom without disturbing the ones asleep.

Posted Jul 4, 2014
Pros: I liked the Japanese decor. I liked the hotel had a restaurant.
Cons: There was not enough closet space. A cabinet occupied half of closet. There was not enough room for clothes for 2 people.
Location: The hotel is in Japan town. There are several ethnic eateries nearby. It was easy to access some tourist spots from the hotel.
I had a pleasant stay. The hotel employees were respectful, helpful and informative. My check-in was late due to a long wait at the car rental place. I had no problems with check-in.

The hotel needs a face liftPosted Jul 1, 2014
Location: Fillmore Street has lots of yummy restaurants and cute boutiques.
The staff was polite and efficient, the location is convenient, but the rooms and hallways need re-doing. The parking is fine, but if you are going in and out frequently, use the valet.
