"Why did I stay in the conference hotel?"
I stayed at this B&B the night before a conference at the Sheraton about 8 blocks away, with one other traveler. I liked the place and would stay again. Our room had a queen bed and a single/twin. My friend took the twin and reported a sunken spot in the middle of it, visible with the blankets pulled back. Its more broken-in sofa than bed I think. The queen bed was fine, the room worked overall. There were plenty of bathrooms and showers on the floor I thought.
Breakfast at 8:00 AM means breakfast at 8:00 AM! And that was fine, but I'd have been buying breakfast if I stayed here during the conference (sessions started at 8:30 AM). Breakfast was served at the table, rather than a buffet, sliced fruit, toast, and English muffins with peanut butter, jam and butter, as much French press coffee as we could drink, orange juice, it was very nice. Only stayed one night so I don't know if they mix it up with breakfast. This was a Thursday morning (thank you, Julie!).
The view from the living room, where breakfast was served, is fantastic. Go out on the fire escape and take a few pictures early in the morning. The living room was nice and on another trip I'd sit, read and enjoy it for a while.
I moved over to the conference hotel after one night, to be a little closer to the action, but I would have been very happy staying here. Good location near Pike Market. There was a terrific wine bar and charcuterie place, just a few doors down on the left as you exit the B&B. Awesome meal.
