Great location, good hotel
This boutique hotel is conveniently located half a block off the busy streets around Union Square, a few steps from a cable car line that goes to Fisherman's Wharf, and a short walk to Market Street with buses, trams and the Powell Street BART station. There are stores, restaurants and lunch counters nearby and art galleries a block away. Our room was fairly small but clean and quiet, as we were on the top floor and faced away from the street. The continental breakfast is modest but sufficient (pastries and toast, fresh whole fruit, cereal, yogurt, juice, etc.) and the evening happy hour (wine and cheese selections) was great for meeting other travellers and exchanging sightseeing tips. All the staff, from the front desk to the cleaners, were very friendly and helpful. I would stay again - good value.
