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.

I enjoyed my stay but...

Liked: I liked the entrance to the Hotel, it was a Grand entrance with a beautiful chandelier. It's noticeable that the Hotel was a big deal back in the day; the Hotel has elegant remnants of it's past.
Disliked: The hallways were dark. The bedrooms were dated. I am sure that the hotel can keep it's style while updating it. The hotel needs updating. It did not smell fresh/clean. The bathroom door did not lock.

Charming older hotel w/ authentic...

Liked: This is an older hotel, over 100 years old, so it has it?s quirks. I love old hotels and the charm they bring. Hotel was clean and the staff friendly. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Disliked: Room was a bit dark with almost no natural light. Area was busy but some homeless around (normal amount for the size of the city). Hotel had personnel at entrance at night to make sure only hotel guests entered, which I appreciated.

Very good

Liked: Close to city attractions and transport, coffee shop located in the lobby. Rooms were spacious and clean.
Disliked: The streets were a bit of an eye-opener and at times felt unsafe.
