Disappointing - 2.0 out of 5

Brenda S S, Mendocino, CA Thu, 3 January 2013

Room was small but did have large walk-in closet. It appeared to be clean and the beds were comfortable. Extremely close to Bill Graham venue. Very annoyed at the long waits for the 2 of 4 small elevators that were in working order. Worst hotel shower ever - long wait for warm water and miniscule water pressure. No in-room coffee so had to trek downstairs to the crowded Starbucks every a.m. Ice machine had ice about 1/2 the time. No room service available at all. Electrical outlet needs replaced. Might have been better satisfied at half the price I paid which was around $750 for 3 nights + $45/night for parking. I'd probably opt for the Best Western next time there's a concert at that venue.

Liked: Room was clean; very close to Bill Graham venue. Friendly, cheerful maid service very helpful.
Disliked: 2 out of 4 small elevators operable; very little shower water pressure; no in-room coffee & no room service available; had to set a bag in front of electrical outlet to keep plug from falling out.

Poor - 1.5 out of 5

Antonio Fri, 17 November 2017

Liked: position was comfortable to reach airport, embarcadero, and other city point of interest, but with a bad feeling on the security side (lots of homeless people and pushers just all around the block)
Disliked: The room was old, seemed it was falling apart. It smelled bad, the linens were stinky. The showerhead was impossible to use (it could not be fixed to its base on the wall in a proper manner). The overall cleaning was poor. Not adequate to the star level!

Wonderful - 4.5 out of 5

Clarence Fri, 17 November 2017

Liked: Shower for handicapped- aged with seating, hold bars, large, but needed a no-slip mat on the shower floor. Best location. BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) at front door.

Fair - 2.5 out of 5

Verified Hotel Guest Fri, 17 November 2017

Liked: Staff at front desk are very helpful and attentive. Valet parking with in and out privileges seems reasonable for San Francisco. Vintage rooms that have been ranked in top ten of haunted hotels.
Disliked: The elevator situation is a nightmare and needs an immediate and drastic upgrade and resolution. Now.

Brenda Fri, 17 November 2017

Liked: The hotel had old time charm.
Disliked: It felt like the hotel had gone through half of a renovation and just stopped. Definitely not a 3 and half star, maybe a 2 star.
