An ok quickie
A quick one night stay is fine but we had a historic room and it was quite small. Bathroom was tiny and felt kind of dusty/dirty (glass shelves were dusty). Location is very central and I probably would have left on a higher note if the Starlight Lounge was open but it was closed the public for a private event all night. Bummed!

My room smelled like urine and so I had trouble sleeping :-(. It may have been b/c dogs stay there? I should’ve changed rooms but was super tired and didn’t realize how strong the smell was until I’m bed.

Sir Francis Drake is a fine Hotel
The location is perfect situated next to Union Square. The hotel is older but well maintained. Staff was very attentive. The hotel is very close to several excellent restaurants, including Sears Food which serves one of the best breakfasts in SF!
