COVA is great
The COVA is a nice hotel in a developing part of the city, just north of City Hall and the Asian museum. While later in the evening can be dicey, the vibe of the hotel with their wine social and rooftop balcony makes up for it all. Thai food in the area is pretty amazing, especially ESAN, but the one across on Larkin was also a recommendation not to be missed. The hotel room was clean and comfortable with a bathroom that was spacious and updated. While we missed breakfast due to flight issues, I am sure it would have made the experience even better.

If it’s the only thing you can afford...
The hotel was decent overall. If, like us, you don’t actually have anything you want to see near the civic center/city hall, I’d stay somewhere else mostly because there’s nothing of interest around the hotel and the immediate area is SUPER sketchy and rundown. Also it was way too hot over the days we were there to not have air conditioning (the column fan didn’t do enough to cool the room down even with the balcony door open at night). The 2 pros I’d point out are the breakfast is good enough and the free wine from 5-7

Poor 2.0
Room 202
Well for $366 I was definitely let down. The room was advertised for $244 and ended up to $366 after all the fees, why advertise an amount if you’re not going to pay that amount in the end. I took the gamble and kept the room and as soon as I got to the room it was right next to the gym where all I was hearing was people in the gym. There was no ac so instead they had two fans in the closet. I went into the bathroom and it seems like it was setup for an disabled person. Very awkward bathroom I must say. Looking out my room window it was the most disappointing part, I was staring at a wall and had a 6” balcony. Haha I went out to the bar for a few drinks and the bartender was serving us free wine which was cool. She happens to pour wine into my girlfriend cup and manage to pour my cup with three separate bottles giving me a few sips out of two bottle then opening up a fresh one. Going out Sunday morning I didn’t even bother going to your complimentary breakfast I had a feeling it can’t be better then what I’ve seen and my girlfriend went and sent me a picture and sure enough I’m glad I didn’t waste my steps going down stairs. I’m sorry I had to point these things out. I’m upset that I paid nearly $100 more than what I wanted and things just turned out awful.

Great hotel with even better service
Cure boutique hotel with AMAZING service. From the moment we walked in, the staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Everyone was very friendly. The man at the front desk recommended a slew of great restaurants and activities. And the ladies in the restaurant were so kind. One of them even held our infant for a couple minutes so that we could eat in peace! The rooms are cute and spacious. We loved the balcony. Such great views of the city. Everything we could want in a room. The rooftop lounge is also great.
