    The location was great. The Receptionist was very helpful with our questions. Check was quick and easy. I left a ring and pair of shoes in the room. I called the Hotel and Housekeeping called me the next day and mailed my ring and shoes to me overnight. I was very impressed how helpful and honest they were. I am definitely going to plan another trip to the hotel. Very happy with my stay.

    the location could not be better, and the rooftop terrace was amazing! just the place to have some drinks in the evening. have a browse through the little library if you forgot to bring something to read! but the real gem of this hotel was Merry, the receptioniste! never have I felt so welcome in a hotel... the hotel itself is almost historical (definitely for the US), with original features. lovely atmosphere, we fell in love with it!

    the internet connection was poor, which makes this hotel not suitable for a business trip (though I would be tempted to say what the h*** and go to a Starbucks if I need internet!)

    Need to upgrade TV--too old, no hd. Also only rubber pillows, which were uncomfortable--and no free internet. So overall, only a fair rating.

  • Group of friends

    Charming decor, great in room ammenities (refrigerator, microwave, dishes, corkscrew, etc.) and fantastic location!

    Parking is an issue because it is downtown. They have a valet parking service that is actually really good -- 24 hour access and unlimited in/out priviledges in a private, secured garage -- but it is very expensive.

    Mary at the reception desk is so helpful and pleasant.

    The parking is really bad and very expensive.

    I loved the price and the location was wonderful. It's in walking distance to the restaurants and bars.

    I did not enjoy the shower in the room at all. It had no water pressure and the only temp it had was hot.

    Nice place. Good price.

    Too noicy. The club down street is too loudly until 1 AM. Can't sleep well. Good for those people who sleep after 1 AM.

    Charming hotel, something different and unique, in an excellent location on 5th Street, in the heart of the Gaslamp quarter. I would definitely go back

    The location was great. Near the convention center. In the heart of the Gaslamp district. Accesable to mass transportation.

    On weekend nights our room was very noisy with comotion from the street from 11pm to 3am eeven though we were on the 8th floor.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    The room was clean and nice. The hotel is older and therefore a little hoakie, example... you can't turn on the shower without being in it, so you get blasted with water that's not adjusted correctly and it also didn't drain very well. Would not stay there again. I was upset that I was charged one price for the first night and a different price (almost double) and one of the beds was a pull out sofa... not a good value.
