    Good facilities in the hotel with convenient access to Union Square shops and sight seeing.

    We were on the 3rd floor on the Post Street side and refuse collection during gthe night could be noisy.

    The location and can do attitude of staff are the strength of this establishment.

    Al little noisy but this was dwarfed by the positives

  • Older travelers

    we really enjoyed the location, the friendliness of the concierge and hotel staff, and the availability of the club lounge.

    the turndown service staff coming into our room without knocking. maybe you could request turndown service on check-in.

    The greeting, valet parking & check in were great although the parking cost guests $28 + tax but they do early bird and theatre offers for the public. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable as well as being well equipped. The staff are happy to help with anything and are proud of the hotel which is located in the heart of the shops, theatres and restaurants.

    It was fine.........parking is too expensive given that it's next to a lot but all-in-all it was fine and the rooms are MUCH larger than many I've stayed in in SF.

    The staff was kind and very helpfull, the room was spacy and clean, nothing to complain about.

  • Older travelers

    The staff was excellent - very courteous and helpful. It was great to have the small fridge and microwave in the room. The wireless internet was easily accessible.

    We were in a room facing the main street, which was extremely noisy due to a club right below. Would stay again, but would insist on a room on the back side of the hotel.

    The room size was great, the staff on reception were very friendly and helpful, the food was tasty and exellent VFM, the bar staff (Mary) was brilliant fun, entertaining, helpful and mixed a great Mojito !

    Clean, centrally located.

    Very noisy, street noise overwhelming.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The staff were freindly and helpful. The room was clean and reasonably quiet and the bed was very comfortable.

    The building is old and it shows it's age a bit, but didn't detract from our stay.

  • Older travelers

    Very well located in downtown, good hotel, nothing special but nothing wrong.

    Very slow Internet.

    The Donatello is perfectly placed for a sf holiday......forget Fishermens Wharf Union Square is the place to be and for a very good hotel at fair prices stay at the "d". Rooms good, staff great and quirky sf downtown not to be missed. Aussie Phil

  • Older travelers

    Staff were very helpful and friendly. The bar and dining excellent. Especially enjoyed the 2 hour happy hour with 50% off food and alcohol. Happy hour 4.30pm to 6.30pm. This hotel was not the flashest we've stayed at but reasonable value for the money and situated in a convenient part of the city.

    The streets in the area of the hotel were grotty with many people begging from the side of these streets.

  • Single
    10.0

    Cleanliness.

    The back of the bathroom door was very worn with the lamination pulled off revealing the plywood below. I felt no one had ever looked behind the door. This was quite contrary to the rest of the room's presentation.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The location was excellent.

    Air conditioner broke twice and had to be fixed twice. Our room was not made p t all the second day, even after calling the front desk twice. We had no clean towels on day three as a result.
