5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I always look forward to Pali - it’s an easy walk from Bart’s Powell Street stop after simple train journey from the airport - no taxi or Uber necessary. The rooms are super comfortable and have great snack & beverage options for late at night. A lot if great shopping & dining options are close by, as well as the famous cable cars. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else in San Francisco now.

Room and hallway smelled so bad. I have to keep window open. Walls are so thin, I can hear people talking in their room.

One of San Francisco’s great secrets - super stylish at a reasonable price. Terrific designer rooms with lots of creature comforts to hand - really nice helpful staff. Close to many of the classic tourist activities - or simply a nice place to spend time between appointments if on business.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
This place is fine. Keep in mind they have a $125 pet fee… almost as much as a full nights stay. And I’m not sure why as the rooms are really tiny and there’s not much your dog could do to require that high of a cleaning fee. The walls are sooooo thin you can hear everything. Staff was nice though. The area around it is ok, walkable to some cool bars. Not super safe though. Lots of homeless. Would not stay here again but it’s fine for just a night or two if you don’t have other options.

Beautiful aesthetic- loved the design of the lobby, the rooms and especially the Fisher Loft. Really disappointing that it wasn’t open for drinks or dinner and that we were not made aware of then when booking or leading up to. The highlight of the hotel was definitely the Fisher Loft. Room walls were very thin and could hear neighbors conversations. Not a great location for good restaurants.

Disliked: Amenities
The location was great. Rooms are small, but clean and retro vibe. Super noisy though- street noise was bad and you could hear everything between the walls and those above you (very creaky!) The receptionist (on the first shift) was very unpleasant, but on the changeover to the afternoon shift, the woman was absolutely lovely. Mouse traps everywhere on the first floor by the bathrooms. Pumped some scent throughout the hotel, that was nice.
