    Almost go what I paid for

    Pros: On the Hop On/Off Tour Bus line. Friendly staff. Clean room. Restaurants a couple of blocks away. Cons: Parking a nightmare. Lobby is a room in the parking garage. The Hop on Bus only goes in one direction- a 2.5 hr loop. No smoke detector, room safe was broken. Room had no pictures on the walls. The view was a square light shaft. Was told they give the cheap rooms to Expedia customers. Was basically an expensive bed for the night.

    Way too noisy.

    Nice clean comfortable room. Unfortunately the street noise was way too much. Very difficult to sleep. A noisy bar very close by and traffic at all hours was unbearable.

    Will Return

    We loved our stay at the Chelsea. The lobby and cleaning staff were all friendly and helpful, the room was big, bright, and clean, with nice furniture, the views were pleasing, and the neighborhood was excellent - walkable, fun, and safe. We will definitely make this our go-to when we return to SF.
