I really wish I could say that I liked staying here, but the experience was overall pretty terrible. I gave this hotel 2 stars because the staff was actually very nice and its location certainly can't be beat. The room itself wasn't tiny and I could tell there were upgrades but the floor looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in weeks and the "king size" bed was actually 2 twin beds pushed together. The room smelled musty and dusty.
As a low maintenance traveler, I could forgive everything and all of the above were it not for the fact it was EXTREMELY NOISY practically 24/7 and at one point I had to bury my head under 2 pillows just to block the noise. It is situated on a very busy street but my room faced the front of the next door hostel, whose occupants carried on with the partying, laughing and smoking all hours of the day and night. Then, when they finally disappeared and quieted down, the building next door, which was under renovation, began with the power tools sawing and drilling for hours. This became painfully obvious that I could not continue staying in that room, so I requested a room change. They were unable to accommodate my request because the hotel manager was not on the premises but I was told they would contact me the following day. The manager did not make contact so I had to inquire again at the desk. I was given another room, which was 4 floors higher, so I couldn't hear the occupants of the hostel so much but I could still hear the drilling and sawing. Not to mention there are very thin curtains on the windows so when the sun comes up, there is no escaping the light, if you care to sleep in. IF you were able to sleep in. All in all, at $93 a night, I think you could do better paying a few dollars more at a better hotel in the same area.
Excellent location, clean, safe, and a great price. I arrived before check-in and was extremely sleep deprived. The Sheldon Hotel manager was very accommodating and asked the cleaning staff to expedite my room so that I could check in earlier and get my ZZZ's before a very important meeting. The building itself feels historic and rustic with lots of character. The rooms are standard but again, are safe and clean. Hot showers with great water pressure. Large walk-in closet. Bring an iron!
Great Hotel. Clean, neat and great location just walking distance to the Union Square. Room was spacy and new renovated. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you!
Location of this hotel is perfect. The room is ok with your own bathroom. The hotel has a shared kitchen. Here you can make your own meal. The hotel has a relaxed atmosphere and the people who work there are nice and helpfull. We are coming to SF and want to stat here again.
