Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Still in bed"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This is an exceptionally clean and scrubbed hotel. I stayed over so I could go to a play in the building. It is a wonderful play and a fabulous way to indulge oneself. If I had a dog he could be indulged too because they have dog biscuits in the lobby. With sherry. My only quibble is paper cups. I do hate paper cups. The staff is patient and helpful. The art is imaginative. The setting is convenient. And did I say, the San Francisco Playhouse is grand!
