"Lovely quirky boutique"

Came into town for baseball and stayed for the weekend. This was a perfect location to walk to Oracle Park. It was close to great restaurants and other activities. I'd read about the water issues but it was NO big deal. Loved the little coffee station on my floor. It was a splendid stay. The staff was amazing and a big shout out to Vincent! I highly recommend this hotel. Get out of the big boxes and enjoy some charm.

We stopped here for a few nights during our honeymoon trip and it was perfect! The location is perfect for all the usual sightseeing, the rooms were lovely and the beds were super comfy!! Free tea/coffee/water in the lobby every day was a nice touch and the staff were always willing to help! There is a theatre in the hotel too but we never heard any noise or had any disruption! Would definitely recommend it!

"Great location"

This hotel is in a great location very near to Union Square. The rooms are a good size, very clean with comfortable beds. The decor is ok, a little dated but rooms have everything you need. Unfortunately, the showers in all 3 of our rooms were awful; either boiling hot or freezing cold! Most of the staff are friendly and welcoming, but one member of staff let the team down as he was surly and rude. Generally this is a good hotel for a few days in the city.

"very unhappy experience"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

I booked this hotel under the influence of great reviews on TripAdvisor. But our own experience was a big disappointment. We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The first night, one minute into the shower, the water temp turned scalding hot which almost burned my wife. (I noticed someone else also posted this 'water temp. flip flopped between ice cold and scalding hot' issue earlier, but apparently the hotel staff only made fake promise to fix it.) Anyway, after we reported this problem, the front desk sent a handy man to look to it. The handy man was rude and basically said he was getting off work in few minutes, and we should just deal with it by constantly turning the knobs to adjust the water temperature during the shower. For $300 per night, I thought that was pretty unacceptable. We called the front desk again, and this time was moved into a different room. So we repacked all our things and moved. The first night was pretty much wasted. The 2nd night, we were woken up by fire alarm 3 o'clock in the morning. Had to run all the way downstairs from 11th Floor, waited outside for 1/2 hour for fireman to clear the building, only to find out it was mistakenly triggered by people that worked at the hotel. No apology whatsoever from the hotel after this incident as nothing had happened. Needless to say, we are extremely unhappy with the hotel and will not come back.
