Nice Clean, Friendly Hotel very close to everything in the heart of San Francisco. We stayed on the 6th floor and it was very quite for a good nights sleep. One negative comment is the room Safe a) Its Positioned above the Waldrobe even with my height I could not see in it wthout standing on a chair. b) We have stayed in 4 Hotels in the USA this trip. This is the first Safe my Laptop would not fit in.
