I would recommend this hotel. The rooms are comfortable. I had a room at the back and it was very quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is convenient to downtown, but it is the Tenderloin so it's definitely rough around the edges.

Was extremely disappointed with this hotel. No hotel parking (more important than the room in SF), hotel room was old, dingy (bed and bedding were terrible), noise from hallway was excessive. Simply a terrible experience...........
