This do-gooder hotel is primed for budget- and eco-conscious travelers, and at one of the best price points in all of San Francisco. The five-story turn-of-the-century building has historic charm throughout its 117 eco-chic guest rooms and suites, which more closely resemble small city studios with their compact desks, iPod docks, flatscreen TVs, colorful lamps and pillows, and warm wood accents. Fitting the hotel’s green ethos, the beds are made from reclaimed wood and recycled soda bottles, and each room has energy and water-conserving toilets, while the in-room “take a book, leave a book” program highlights the communal and sharing feel of the hotel. Prius drivers will be happy to know they offer complimentary parking for hybrid cars (a big money-saver in downtown San Francisco, where overnight parking can run a bill nearly into the triple digits).
In the Area
Located in the heart of SoMa, the neighborhood around Good is bustling. A few blocks’ walk will take you to The Warfield, a 2,300-seat music venue that hosts major rock music acts. Just a little farther is Piano Fight, a small, hip venue serving craft beer, sketch comedy, and other live entertainment. For breakfast, Dottie’s True Blue Cafe is a local staple, offering hearty homespun pancakes and waffles in a kitschy setting (go early, as a line forms fast here). Sightglass Coffee is just around the corner, pouring frothy cappuccinos in a hipster environment. Should you decide to venture further afield, the city’s BART subway system is just a block from the hotel.
How to Get There
We were very pleased with this stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and housekeeping was attentive and complied with requests for towels, pillows, etc. quickly and were also friendly.
Cant really ask for more for the price. Located in South of the Market, it is a fiirly centralised location during my trip. One tip is to avoid the ground level rooms if possible especially if you are a light sleeper
What liked about the hotel is that is was near my destination and there were places to dine hotel I had no problem with getting around. I also had a good nights sleep l after calling the front desk for extra blankets thank you.
