    Perfect

    Very nice rooms and general decoration of the hotel. The staff was very helpful. The bustling center with many nice restaurants are within walking distance.

    Unfortunately, our bathroom was a bit outdated, you could see that especially by the worn bottom ...

    Great

    The room was very spacious and beautiful, bathroom however very small. Good beds. The location all right, within walking distance of Union Square and Market Street.

    Parking is only possible on the basis of valet at high rates. Otherwise you have to park your car somewhere in a public parking garage. Hotel had scaffolding in front of the door, is not such a nice entry.

    Very good

    The location of the hotel was very good and the room was comfortable.

    I would have been better if the price had included breakfast and the hotel had a free wifiservive for guests, or at least provide an internet room free of charge.

    Excellent location, modest up-to-budget but stylish design.

    Terrible noise from the street. Only one layer of glass on a window leaves gaps. I would strongly recommend to the hotel to put double glass windows!! NIghtmare!!

    Perfect

    The staff were absolutely wonderful and so warm and friendly during my stay!

    I understand that this hotel is older but my first room, 510, had extremely thin walls. I would rather not hear every giggle, chitter chatter or otherwise going on in the room next door at 1:30 am.

    Perfect

    We loved the room we had. We were upgraded because we were staying for 10 days. A special thank you to Tod! Who arranged it for us. He was an excellent person for the Clift to have on their staff!

    Nice

    we found a live flea in the bed, the hotel switched our room and ended up downgrading our room to a lower floor level. Next day, woke up w/ a flea bite on my leg. the hotel manager didn't care to follow up or offer any compensation.
