Pros: The location was the best part of staying here! The staff was excellent. The room was very nice. The decor in the hotel was nice as well as the connected restaurant. There's a very nice man dressed in a knight costume out front who is very welcoming.
Cons: Just the bathtub. The bathroom was nice, but the bathtub bottom needs to be professionally cleaned because it has some signs of having a bathmat stuck to it previously. Either needs to be bleached or scrubbed so that it looks white.

Pros: The staff and the room nicely decorated
Cons: The bathroom was so small, besides only the hot water was working, even after I called the maintenance, I had to open the faucet while I was taking a shower to don't burn myself.

Pros: Hotel lobby was lovely - staff friendly and helpful and location central to everything you need in San Fransisco
Cons: Watch out for car parking charges in addition to hotel room booking $--- per night, therefore park elsewhere which are cheaper

Pros: The location is great. The cable car is right outside the front door; the Union Square shops are close by; the Embarcadero is an 8 minute jog away, and a great place for me to take my morning run. The room appeared clean and the beds were comfortable.
Cons: The faux Britishness is a bit annoying, and our room was dated. I understand the emphasis on tradition, but the paint seems caked on in multiple layers, the sink drained slowly, and the fixtures were rusted.
