Great location

Our Hotel was Close to our destination, as well as the Cable Cars. Our Room was hot, so I asked for a fan, which I got right away. The Carpet had an odor coming from it. There were people working on the roof, so it was impossible to get a nap. I liked the decor it has great Character, but some would say it's outdated. Everyone was friendly.

Good Experience

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The rooms were small (as expected) but the staff was so friendly and helpful. Originally got a room with 1 double bed and had no problem getting a room with an extra bed. The bathroom was very clean and up to date. Overall my friends and I had a good experience and the location was great. I would stay here again.

Located right in the town so taking a trolley or bus will get you anywhere. Staff were very very nice and the room was clean. No issues no worries. This is an old fashioned hotel but it's very cute and nice.

Good Location, bit pricey

It is a decent hotel in a nice neighbourhood. The only problem is with the parking, the hotel doesnt have it's own place, and the 36$ valet doesnt worth it

More exercise going to the restroom than during ourHalf Marathon

The hotel was very old and very victorian. The rooms were small but cozy. However someone left us a little something in the toilet. When we told the front desk they immediately had someone come to our room to investigate. The staff member flushed the toilet and said it was broken and they would fix it. We needed to be somewhere so we left for a couple of hours. When we returned the front desk said it was fixed. It was not fixed and we spent the rest of our stay going up and down 4 flights of stairs to use the lobby restroom.
