Fodor's Review

This little bit of Italy on Powell Street houses guests in traditional rooms that, though not large, feel comfortable, upbeat, and expansive. Bar Norcini, an Italian café-bar with marble surfaces, is just off the street, and a glass wall separates a wide lobby with high ceilings, comfy furnishings, and Italianate chandeliers from Kuleto's, a boisterous, trendy restaurant often packed with locals. Guests can enter the restaurant directly from inside the hotel and eat there, or simply sit at the bar. Offering contemporary surroundings with Tuscan character and personalized service, this is an attractive alternative to the sometimes sterile chain hotels in the area. Be warned: the hotel charges a resort fee to cover "amenities" like newspaper delivery or town car use.
