6,0 Okay
The parking situation is less than ideal. Rooms are very small and heat controls are not operational. Very noisy with poor sound insulation. Decore was nice and the staff was friendly. The attached restaurant is not good Served me raw hamburger meat. Not rare straight raw.
8,0 Very Good
Pros:nice rooms
Cons:the urban fee is a ripoff
8,0 Very Good
Pros:Everyone was very cordial and that is exceedingly important to me.
Cons:The lukewarm/cold complimentary coffee served the days I was at the hotel.
9,1 Wonderful
Pros:Quiet with access to the theater district, Union Square and fine dining
Cons:Bathroom a little small
6,2 Okay
Pros:I really liked the architecture and our bellhop/concierge (they play double duty) was really nice.
Cons:The rooms are small, which I expected from an old building. The mattresses are awful (truly, truly awful), which I din't expect and the price is high for low amenities and low quality. Also, the valet parking is $60/day. When we checked out, they asked how our stay was and I told them the mattresses were really uncomfortable and they just sort of ignored that. They probably hear it all the time. I won't stay there again.
9,1 Wonderful
Pros:Friendly & helpful staff. Location, and Jaspers as an option for meals & drinks.
Cons:A little worn, coffeemaker inroom,
8,0 Very Good
Pros:The hotel has lots of character, the lobby looks like the lobby of an old movie theater. The room also was furnished in period style, with a nice view. Very conveniently located near Market Street.
10,0 Wonderful
Pros:I typically stay at a large chain hotel but couldn't get one on a short notice - the price was right and I really enjoyed taking a break from the same large business hotels. The lobby takes you to another place in time and everyone was very friendly. The room was clean and quaint. My colleague was staying at the much larger Hilton right across the street and loved the Serrano when he stopped by. It was a nice break from the usual and well worth it!
8,2 Very Good
Pros:This used to be a Kimpton Hotel and still has the cool factor that Kimpton brings to all its properties.
Cons:Sadly, maintenance has waned since the hotel was sold to an investment company.
6,0 Okay
Pros:Rooms were small but clean. Hotel was well kept for its age.
Cons:Location is in a difficult side of town. Hidden costs such as a $22.00 tax. We made them take it off. $59.00 for parking we were not told about the cost. Then our account was charged other amounts we had no idea what they were.
