We stayed in this Hotel for 3 nights and we were 100% satisfied. It has a great location very near Union Square and its just a 10 minutes walk to China town. All the staff we met were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are big enough and Wifi works very well. Breakfast is also more what we have expected....

We stayed four nights of a two week California vacation. This hotel was a good base for us. We had a room with a real wood burning fireplace. The housekeeping staff would supply a burlap tied bundle of wood each day for us to easily light a fire anytime we wanted. The hotel management hosted an evening wine and cheese...

My wife and I were looking to find a "just right - Goldie locks" hotel to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. As others have stated the staff is topnotch. They were warm, sincere and attentive - but not overly so. Our room was very quiet, private and clean. The breakfast along with the afternoon wine and cheese hour added even...

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your 4th anniversary with our staff and our “just right” hotel . We are so happy you had a pleasant experience and enjoyed our complimentary breakfast (sorry, no porridge on the menu), quiet clean rooms and personalized service. Perhaps you will give us the honor of sharing your 5th anniversary with you next year....

The Inn is a gorgeous boutique hotel right in the heart of downtown SF. Union Square is literally across the road - with all the shopping and eating you can cram into your stay. The hotel itself is small - which suits me, as its a more personal experience than at the big chains. We stayed in room 403 for...

What a lovely stay at this perfectly situated "Inn" in Union Square. Literally down the street from the Trolley line to Hyde wharf, but quiet, not on the main drag. Service was friendly and very helpful with the concierge assisting in printing out a flight plan change for us since it was sent to my husband's cell phone. In fact,...

I have never been to a hotel with service that was even comparable to this! Nicest people I've ever met, from chatting with guest at the wine reception, or helping us get a cab and offering directions to attractions they were all lovely people. I highly highly recommend this hotel, the location was fantastic too!

This "boutique" hotel is right in the middle of downtown San Fran, but you would never know it. We were on the 4th Floor and didn't hear any street noise! Amazing! Also, amazing was the staff -- super courteous, helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast was a treat - I mean who offers free anything in the City? We were...

Such a lovely place. Top in cleanliness, amenities, linens, and bed comfort. We had a junior suite which included a separate sitting area (2 doors between bed and TV so each of us could do as we liked at night). The breakfast was fantastic -- bakery style croissants, scones, and muffins plus OJ and coffee. In the early evening there...
