Editorial review:

This chic hotel in the South of Market area is great for younger guests who enjoy a good nightlife. The amenities are contemporary, the design is minimalist, and the bar scene is great. The food is good, but the service is somewhat snobbish. However, the rooms have beautiful furnishings and comfortable beds.

                upscale, friendly helpful staff. The building showed some signs of its age with the ceiling, back hallways of the spa etc however the rooms were beautiful, they honoured my Starwood membership and upgraded my room and the lounge was fantastic.

                The spa. The staff was friendly but the atmosphere is anything but relaxing. Clinical is the best description.

                The room I was eventually put in had a decent view of the bay bridge

                I arrived at the hotel in a taxi, the taxi drop off is located at the side of the hotel. After exiting the taxi I had to walk around to the front and hold the doors open for the bell/porter carrying my luggage. Then reception couldnt find my booking, after about 15mins they 'upgraded' me to a smaller room than I originally booked. The room was very small, the decoration of the room wasnt to my liking, compared to their sister hotel w Hollywood this hotel was very poor

                Room service staff and food very good. Room and view beautiful.

                The gym was terrible. Broken machines, smelly, dirty and small.

                Hip boutique hotel, nice and friendly staff. Great location!

                Of course it is relatively expensive, e.g. parking USD 52/day.

                The service was exceptional.

                I requested a non-smoking room and my room smelled like smoke.

                The location

                Very noisy with loud music everywhere all the time even in business center at 6 am! No free wifi in the hotel which is a shame for this kind of hotel. Definitely not a business hotel where you can have a business breakfast or meeting
