Great hotel in a great locationWalking distance to a lot of restaurants, Walgreens and shops. Could walk to Chinatown but its hilly. The hotel staff were all good and friendly. The only thing was the pillows were not supportive, everything else was great.

Central locationGreat location for exploring San Francisco but the downside is the noise at the weekend. If someone had told me they were filming Fast and Furious 9 outside our bedroom at 1.00am on Saturday night I would have believed them.

Very artsy hotel with paper thin wallsThe hotel is gorgeous. If you are looking to stay in a boutique hotel with amazing art and guests from all over the world, this is the place to book.
