Fodor's Review

Entering this hotel requires stepping over footprints, handprints, and autographs embedded in the sidewalk by visiting stars; with two major theaters, the Curran and the American Conservatory, across the street, this hotel is a magnet for actors, musicians, writers, and artists. The hip place, its exterior painted in commanding black and white, recently underwent a $2-million renovation, and its guest rooms—the suites in particular—are as urban and modern as the clientele.

Designer carpets complement brushed-steel headboards whose shape mimics that of ocean waves. Crisp white sheets highlighted by a purple throw, and Harry Bertoia chairs supply another dose of eye candy. Window shades evoke the hotel's sexy chic with silhouettes of stiletto-heeled legs and a lingerie-clad model's torso. Bathrooms are tiny but equipped with eco-friendly bath products, and kids will appreciate the colorful Little Divas Suites decked out in vibrant bedding and stocked with toys, Wii, and a karaoke machine. A Starbucks and Colibri Mexican Bistro are just off the lobby.

We had a great stay!

A no frills hotel, that is clean, safe, and completely accommodating. We had a great time, and would stay here again.

aging hotel needs updating

hotel diva has a great reputation, but if our room with ripped carpet, lights burned out upon our arrival was any indication of the rest of Hotel Diva... The free email old iMacs are great, but getting also long in the tooth. Staff are very stressed. Wine is offered at the entrance desk, but only if you ask, and pour yourself with glasses under the desk. Having Starbucks next door was great since no coffee makers are in rooms. Califronia Pizza

Kitchen on the other side was great. and nearby breakfast eateries like Max's were perfect. All in all, good sized rooms, poor lighting in them, comfortable beds. Check hotel discounters for best rates, we didn't and paid way too much!

A different (good) opinion...

Wow, the other posters didn't like this place at all! I enjoyed it. We had the corner room with the Murphy Bed in the wall and found it to be extremely spacious. The decor speaks to some, and may seem cold to others. It tries hard to be a W Hotel (think free apples in a steel basket in the lobby, clear green fortune cookie shaped soaps, etc.). I loved it--lots of dark blues, purples, silver...very vibrant. The location is alright, a bit seedier at

night but all in all, not too bad. I've been to many, many hotels in SF and this is definitely not the worst (or best).

Not that great

The room was very small and poorly furnished. The 2 chairs and table were in front of the sink, with the bathroom on the other side of the room. My room was also in the back of the hotel, and there was a nightclib on the next street, so it was very loud until 3 am. Nice location but you can do better

Get Me Out Of Here

I can't say anything good about this dump - bums on the street outside, long wait for reception & breakfast requested for 7AM hadn't arrived by 10AM. The worst hotel in which I have stayed in San Francisco.
