The hotel is just one block from the tram station (Folsom St.) and next to Market (another important street in San Francisco Downtown). You can walk to Chinatown and Union Square. There are lots of restaurants nearby.
I was greeted immediately on arrival Ali by the concierge, who directed me to the front desk. My check in process was quick and hassle-free. My room was located on the top floor and faced Powell Street. I stayed one Saturday night and checked out in the morning. I was able to leave my luggage there while I was in town.
Loved the hotel, very clean and room with a view.
Stayed a week with no problems. Nice swimming pool.
Not much other than shopping within walking distance, municipal transportation required for the tourist spots but even that was not a problem with Market St just two blocks away. Baseball park within walking distance.
Loved San Francisco and loved the experience.
Room Internet connection was poor, very slow and took a long time to connect.
The area was pretty ghetto but on the flip side it made the hotel feel life our litte safe haven. The staff is nice and the room was okay. The shower was dandy. Don't rely on the breakfast. It's just pastries in plastic wrappers and coffee. If you are a fancy pantsy don't go there. But if you're chill like us and don't need a lot to enjoy yourself well you're good.

"Centrally located in nice old fashioned building"
We stayed for 3 nights in 801 at the top of the hotel. It's right next to Union Square & on the cable car route. Very good staff & our room was good. I think if you stayed on the lower floors it might be a bit noisy but it is the centre of the city! Overall very good.
We stayed two nights and enjoyed the hotel. Room was very comfortable and clean. Concierge staff were very knowlegable and helpful in suggesting a great restaurant for Cioppino. Best ever experience at the Tadich Grille. We would definitely reccomend this hotel. Read the negative comments of other guests and could not agree at all.
Stayed here for a recent conference at the Hilton. The hotel was very reasonably priced and great value compared to the venue itself. It is centrally located and a short walk to everything. The elevator can be a little slow (it's 9 floors) so that may be a concern for some others.
