Wish the room had a fridge. Be prepared to dodge a number of interesting SF characters in the area.

Mini bar was so packed I could not put a bottle of water into it. It was annoying and unnecessary. At checkout, I learned that I had jostled the items trying to make a room and there was a $35 charge (promptly removed).Recommend decreasing quantity in bar

This is a well-run hotel with a competent staff. A convenient location for walking to a Giants game, Union Square, theaters, restaurants, etc.
Bad Tags
I enjoyed the lap pool, but wish it were a little bigger and open to the outside deck.

The kitchen and bar were closed. They had a makeshift bar/restaurant on the 6th floor that only stayed open until 10pm and did not offer hot food. Was not up to a 4.5 star experience.
Bad Tags
Kitchen and bar were under remodel. would have stayed at a different place if I had known this.

Nothing to report. Although we were there only two nights and didn't really use the hotel for anything other than sleeping. That being said, I would certainly return the next time I'm in San Francisco.
