high price for value
Amenities not great. Also bathroom essential not provided. Location -awful

Very Good 8.0
Happy but could have been better
Overall experience was great. Would have been better had the construction in the front not been going on. Didn’t have a view but didn’t really care. Biggest issue was lack of space for two full beds. Room should have been bigger or not offered. Beds were also uncomfortable but also could have been due to the beds being fulls rather than queens.

Hotel is nice and newer - cool vibe / colors $50 for parking and lots of homeless in tents on the side of the building - we walked down to the warf without issue
Chris, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
A most outstanding property!
Fantastic! The hotel is a gorgeous historic property that has been remodeled to the highest standard. I loved just walking through it, up and down the vintage staircases. The front desk staff is wonderful! Thank you Sandra for all your help! The location is perfect - 15 minutes walk to Union Square; Mel's Kitchen is basically attached to the property (order the Spare Rib Grilled Cheese sandwich) and across the street is the famous Tommy's Joynt (featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives).
