We were invited to an evening function at the Contemporary Jewish Museum and wanted a comfortable, reasonably priced hotel nearby. The Park Central fit our needs very well, as it was in the same block as the museum. It was also reasonably convenient to the BART, which allowed us to travel to the hotel from the airport and back without having to rent a car. We ate a good, if rather expensive, meal in MaSO, the hotel restaurant, and went for breakfast to La Boulange, which was a block or two away. The room itself was comfortable and we slept well.
I was in San Fran for Pride, my original booking for another place fell through, then I found this place and very glad I did. The staff was absolutely nice. There was a bar on the corner, and I was within walking distance of the parade and pretty much close to anything I wanted to go to.
We were in Cali for a few days and went with this place since it was a pretty inexpensive option in the city. The room was pretty small and the appliances were old, minus the TV. The room we had was nice enough to have satelite so there were a lot of channel options, but after an hour the TV would automatically shut off because of some preset timer that we couldn't figure out how to get rid of. It was super annoying because we'd be watching a show or a movie and the TV would shut off without any warning. The room didn't have air conditioning, which I thought would be a problem, at first but luckily there was always a constant breeze blowing which kept our room cool. The bed however, was so super comfortable. As for the hotel staff, they are very to the point and don't really engage in conversation so sometimes there is a kind of awkwardness that arrives. The lite breakfast they offer is basically juice, coffee and pasteries. It would have been nice if there was fruit or something else so it wasn't the same everyday, but the options they did have were delicious. Overall the room and the hotel met our basic standards while we were staying. The location has some great restaurant options and is close to
A lot of things in the city. If you're not looking for anything super fancy, but comfort, I'd recommend it.
