Kiwi in San Fran
Very good location. Front of office staff where friendly from check in to check out. The hotel although apparently redecorated in 2011 looked and felt a bit run down. The "Starlight" nigh club on the 21st floor gives a great view of the city center and played good music. On check in both the bell boy and the "Beef-eater" out front of the hotel where eager to help and earned their tip, however leaving was a different story. We struggled with our suitcases down to the hotel entrance, the "Beef-eater" got us a taxi but then literally tossed our suitcases in to the boot and the taxi driver had to unload them and sort them out. Ask for the hotel's transport back to the airport, Joe the driver is a really friendly guy.

Top Location
Hotel is well located making it easy to get around San Francisco. Hotel was clean, but overall is getting rather tied. Room and bathroom were small, but adequate as we did not spend time there other than for sleeping. Overall it is worth considering if your not intending to spend large amounts of time in your room.

Quality, character hotel in great location
Stayed one night only on business. Will be my first choice when I'm next back. Bar on top floor has spectacular views over the city.
