A really comfortable place to base your weekend in SF. A bit artsy and oozes character - subtly. The rooms at the back are really quiet day or night. But you're still two short blocks from Union Square. Reasonably small hotel; the staff are courteous and helpful. We had dinner Friday night in the hotel bar - The Library. There was live jazz on Friday night and we discovered that about 2/3 the people in the bar were locals - who are quite friendly. Even the singer came and said hi to us after she'd finished.
Powell St streetcar is half a block from the hotel, though we walked to the Pier 1 area in about 15 minutes (great farmers' market on Saturday morning).
The hotel is about 5 minutes' walk from the Powell St BART station. For a cheapskate like me, that's a great airport connection. Plus, taking BART rather than a taxi saves 10lb of carbon emissions per journey. Plus it saves $20, plus it saves 30 minutes during rush hour, ...
Food options abound. Lots of Thai restaurants around the corner
