Glad we only stayed one night! Took forever to check in. Only 1 out of 4 elevators were working. There was a free breakfast but the line wrapped around the lobby. Website said boutique style hotel. Would not recommend.

The breakfast was very unhealthy. No option for vegetarians. The least they could offer was some simple oatmeal and when asked they just gave us fruit.

Great location. Two blocks from Fisherman’s Wharf. Walking distance to Little Italy and Coit Tower. Two grocery stores and may great restaurants all in walking distance. Public transportation is close by to go downtown to Union Square or Chinatown. It can get loud at night being so close to so many major attractions.
