Surprisingly nice hotel for price and location.

The staff is friendly and very helpful. They let me check in as early as 8:45am on my way from the airport to a conference! I stayed in room 12 on the first floor. Spacious for an SF hotel. Everything was good quality, and the breakfast spread was awesome every morning. If you are loud and like privacy, you might not love it, though, because you can kind of hear stuff in other spaces (just like in a normal old house). The gardens are beautiful and spacious with lots of separate lounging areas. There's a nice hot tub in a covered gazebo outside. There's a spiral staircase on the third floor that goes to a rooftop access with tables, chairs, and 360 view of city. They only charge $2 for sodas and bottled water (honor system!), and offer coffee/tea all day and free sherry and port for customers in the lobby. All of the antiques are all beautiful, and they really keep their plants up. I also had a room with my own full bath (soaker tub, shower, sink, toilet), which is NOT a given when staying in San Francisco's Mission District.
