Two weeks at the Halcyon
My partner and I are both currently living and working in Sydney, Australia. We took a holiday provided by my employer to Los Cabos Baja Sur, Mexico. Very fancy and very expensive. Our return trip took us thru San Francisco. Since my partner had never explored the town, we thought to stay for a few days. Wanting to conserve funds, we considered hostels, but I had visited San Francisco a few years earlier. I really liked the place that I had chosen that time around. The Halcyon, 649 Jones. We rode the BART from the Airport and took the easy walk from Powell Street Station. Hey, we were prepared to rough it at a hostel, but here we were enjoying great privacy and comfort at hostel prices. OK, Our room was nothing special: Nice, clean, and comfortable. The shower was hot and with a great showerhead (this is a personal need of mine)!!! Cable TV, alarm clock, Hair blower, in room refrigerator, with a microwave and stocked with kitchen accessories and utensils. We felt like we had come home! Sure, our five star, of the previous week, was loaded with amenities (like $4.00 for a candy bar, and $6.00 for a soda). Here, we found our basic needs fulfilled and more!! The Halcyon is conveniently located to transportation, shopping and some great dining!! We enjoyed the speedy wireless internet access provided. I took advantage of the in-house laundry facilities. An extra perk provided by the management, was the friendliness and wealth of information they provided. We want to thank the Halcyon and staff for such a great atmosphere and quality service. I must do my best to provide a glowing recommendation to this establishment for Value, comfort, location and affordability. Please give this venue due consideration, you won’t be disappointed.

best for those who just want to sleep at their hotel room
the people at the halcyon are so friendly and helpful- a big help to those who have never been to SF before. the room is small--but we didn't need a big hotel room because we were cruising the city everyday. there is no AC, but such a nice breeze you do not need one. the only not go so good part was you do tend to hear a lot of street traffic- at least our room did- a lot of firetrucks! so just be aware. we had an excellent time- the location is perfect and we cannot wait to go back!

Plain, clean, adequate, and would recommend
The Halcyon Hotel was adequate for our needs and would be better for a longer time stay in S.F. The rooms were plain, but clean and functional. Overall a great deal in this expensive city. We also stayed at The Mosser, which is in a better location (more centrally located) and had those special little touches that made it special. The Halcyon was $** for one night and The Mosser was $** on a Saturday night. The Halcyon would have been $** for Saturday night, but they were booked up. I'm glad we stayed at The Mosser to compare the two. If you need a nice place to stay for one night, I'd recommend The Mosser. But for a longer stay, such as a week or a month, then The Halcyon would be a better choice.
