Poor - 1 out of 5

Dana, San Jose Sun, 5 October 2014

How can a hotel that I spent $240 a night for not have A/C? We couldn't even get ready for the show at the Regency because it was a sauna in our room. The audacity to throw a few pieces of Ikea furniture and fixtures and call it a boutique hotel! The check-in clerks were rude but the gentlemen at the desk upon check out were 100 times nicer. We usually stay at the Prescott when Hank III comes to SF but they had no vacancies. Guess I'll make reservations with them way in advance and stick to what I know as a reliably nice hotel. Cova Hotel plain and simply sucks!

Liked: Free breakfast.
Disliked: Awful hotel.

Liked: Wine reception, size of rooms, breakfast, shuttle was cool, decent price for the room.
Disliked: Kind of a rough neighborhood but it was in the downtown area of San Fran so that is expected. Maybe security staff would be nice just to feel safe when you walk in.

Liked: Friendly stuff, facilities in a good condition, clean.
Disliked: The area around it is very shady. We planned to walk everywhere but ended up taking Uber just to avoid the neighborhood as it seems not safe.

Dimond in the Tenderloin

Liked: Most Hotels we have stayed in San Francisco have very small rooms. At the Cova Hotel, the rooms AND the bathroom is huge. In the last place we stayed, if you dropped the soap in the shower, you could not bend over to pick it up. The shower was that small! The shower at the Cova has a full size bathtub which makes for having plenty of room. I also liked the roof top lounge area and the 5pm to 7pm complimentary wine.
Disliked: I was expecting scrambled eggs not hard boiled eggs for breakfast. Where's the bacon or sausage? It was enough because they kindly heated up my take home food from the dinner the night before.
