"Personality" is a euphemism
So...this hotel looks great online. Don't fall for it. It has not been renovated in at least 25 years. And -- there is no AC! You need to rely on opening your window (and it's the middle of the city, so it gets noisy), and a ceiling fan. Yes, I know many in San Francisco don't have AC, but for the same price, you can stay one block up the street at the JW Marriott, which is exactly what I did after the first night. Furniture is old and worn out, and the bathroom is very poorly designed.
