Fodor's Review

Built in the 1920s in a Moorish and Gothic style, this former Elks Club retains its distinctive period feel and features, with rich marble and dark-wood accents, crystal chandeliers, vaulted ceilings, and antique furnishings in the lobby and art-deco touches in the comfortable guest rooms. Complimentary morning coffee and evening tea and sherry are served daily in the lobby. The upper floors, where rooms are equipped with telescopes to take in the city views, are the quietest, as are accommodations facing away from the busy downtown street. What the hotel lacks in amenities, it more than makes up for in convenience and service. Some guests have commented that staying here is more like visiting a friend than being at a hotel. Plus, the location can't be beat: Union Square is right outside the door.

When you're a weary traveler in SF, you will want to come back to a room with a comfortable bed that's not all the way across town. The service and the decor are also very
