    Is this a joke? Great place to stay if your ideal night involves prostitutes and coke, and love to show off how much money you have by paying extra for $20 wifi and $20 water. TRULY AWFUL.

    Don't be fooled by the lobby, this place is Barbie's grandma's mid-west apartment from the 1990's. Cheesy and outdated, but equally as over priced as any other SF hotel.

    The Harry Potter-esque moving portraits with back-stories in the redwood-clad bar will make you keep glancing at throughout the night and interpret their gazes. Oh and the cocktails are beautiful, too

    High end hookers & blow. Bouncers at the lobby & elevator on Sat. Coffee in the lobby is gone at 10am & no coffee in room. $29 OK breakfast ends early. "You don't want to know what goes on here."

    The rooms feel like a 90s SF apartment my grandmother helped design. Bad curtains, old tiles, and a well-partied on carpet.
