My freshman dorm room was nicer. or $450/night, needs to be a lot better.

They are renovating the hotel. The newly renovated rooms are nice...ask for one of those. The old rooms are not as nice.

Never again
The service from the front desk was excellent, they went above and beyond. This along with the great location were the only redeeming qualities of the hotel. The building was in rough shape, and the room dirty and run down. The smallest things were not tended to: the toilet paper holder was broken, the shower curtain didn't reach the ground, so the floor got wet, chunks of paint were peeling, the sink leaked, and furnishings were damaged. When I looked under the bed before leaving to see if anything had rolled under there, there was trash that was definitely not mine. The TV barely worked, it was half static with a handful of clear channels, some without sound. I've stayed in many hostels around the world, but this was the crummiest place I've stayed. I understand it's an old building and there are posters about upcoming renovations, but at a minimum I would've expected the room to be clean.

Good location smelly room
Good location. But the room and coridor smells.
Seung, kr6 night business trip
Good 6.0
The room was very small and dated. I've stayed at other 2 star hotels in San Francisco and would go back to most of them, sadly not Hotel Stratford. If there is one positive it's the location.
