    This hotel was the baseline of quality I'd expect for a hotel of this level of service, location, and history. The room had a large and very comfortable bed, and large bright windows with a fantastic view of the city. Loved the view and the high floor and the pillows. My sleep quality felt good. The location is great, very close to Union Square, though be warned this area gets many homeless wanderers after 9pm.

    I can't tell if the hotel rooms have been renovated recently. The decor is not at all my taste. Everything is black and red and has a weird woman-in-her-60s-sexual-reawakening vibe, down to the toys offered in the hotel dresser. The bathroom lighting was awful and there was no makeup mirror so you had to lean way over the large counter. Everything just felt cringey and poorly done. The lobby was dusty and tired. I waited 10 minutes for baggage claim. We could hear the club on the 21st floor from our room on the 16th floor until late hours of the night. If I were revisiting San Francisco in this area, I'd choose Hotel Emblem a block away instead of this hotel.

    Location. Very near Chinatown and several eating facilities close. Manager was very helpful. Opportunity for catamaran tour was very nice.

    Small rooms, POOR lighting of bathroom, no tubs, condescending and rude staff. The concierge was also not available often, and when he was, was not able to produce opportunities like a top level concierge in a city like New York or Rome. The "amenities" provided which we never used. These included: bicycles, wine bar, in-room yoga mats, use of business center (not centre - we live in the US not Britain), and use of fitness center (not centre again). When questioned about these, the hotel staff seemed shocked that we did not consider them important. Additionally, I found it funny that they thought we should appreciate the 14% room tax (daily) along with the $33.77 destination fee (daily) for both rooms because.....(wait for it) we were in San Francisco. They acted as if our lives should be complete because we had stayed in San Francisco. My family and I have traveled all over the world and San Francisco ranks in the probably the bottom third of destinations.
