Expert Reviews
The roof of this 161-room property in Lower Nob Hill is covered with solar panels --- technology that embraces the sun's power to offset electricity costs.
The simply furnished rooms, which have ceiling fans and views, are reminiscent of the kind of apartment that would belong to a globe-trotting bohemian aunt.
Time Out
One of the city's best-value mid-range hotels. Because it's just beyond the usual tourist path, rates are lower than at comparable Union Square-area hotels.
