Pros: It is an easy walk to Union Square or Chinatown, and an easy bus ride to Japantown or The Embarcadero. The staff is always very professional and helpful.
Cons: This visit, our room overlooked the trolley line, and the trolleys seemed to run all night. In past visits, we weren't able to hear the trolley.

Pros: The location can't be beat. Close to shopping, theatre and restaurants. Right on the Cable Car line and plenty of transportation options. The front desk and customer service staff were outstanding!
Cons: The hotel is very old, so the rooms are varying sizes (some a bit small). Being on a busy street, there is a bit of street noise on the lower floors.
