Excellent location if you're in town for business in the downtown core, just off the Seneca exit of I-5. Everyone from the valet to the front desk to housekeeping was extremely friendly and gave excellent service. The room was clean, decor a little dated, but very clean and nice amenities.
I usually stay at Marriott properties, but had a last minute meeting and wanted to be walking distance from my client, and this fit the bill nicely. It was a great value too!
Like a lot of things in Astoria, I loved this place, but would not have come here with my little kids (under 5). Too many things you aren't supposed to touch and too many things that could break!
But my husband and I loved it and we loved looking at all the old personal artifacts of the Flavel's, the architecture of the house, and the old construction.
I even enjoyed the film that you watch before you go inside the house, the history of the area is very interesting the story of Captain Flavel was one I'd not heard of before. I usually yawn at historical presentations, but this one somehow touched me and I found the story of his family really interesting.
Would not have found this place except that it was recommended by a stranger (who we stopped on the street to ask for breakfast recommendations). I thought it was a really cute little restaurant with a very friendly host and quick service. It was January, but the restaurant was about 2/3 full when we sat down about 9:30 am.
I had the french toast, eggs over easy, and bacon, and everything was done just right. My friend had the corned beef hash, which was amazing. Giant chunks of corned beef and potatoes - I wish I'd ordered that.
Pretty good value for a touristy location, good food, good coffee, and very friendly service. I'd definitely come here again when in town.
Excellent little coffee shop with great breakfast. Their lattes were amazing and I wish someone in my hometown could make coffee this good (or maybe it just taste better when you're on vacation).
The breakfast sandwiches were great, simple, and fresh.
Service is friendly, although a little slow. I would not have enjoyed this if I had my little children hanging around, but for a nice slow weekend breakfast it was perfect.
Really interesting little hotel on the main drag in downtown Astoria. We stayed 2 nights in a suite (I was too nervous to do the shared bathroom thing), and for the price, I thought it was a good value. The check in staff was really friendly and they were nice enough to bring me a blow dryer (they are not in the rooms) when asked.
It's a pretty minimalist room; bed, flat screen tv hanging on the wall, clothing rack and shelf. And that's it. But the bed and linens are nice, they provide robes, and the bathroom was very nice.
The room we stayed in was right over the main street, and if you're not used to street noise, it might bother you. It's old historic construction, single pane windows, so for all intents and purposes, you can hear what you'd hear if you were standing on the street (luckily I've been trained by living underneath the LAX runways, so it didn't bother me; or my husband who's had to live near train tracks).
If you like old stuff, you'll love this little hotel. The coffee shop downstairs does a nice job with simple breakfasts, and their coffee was so wonderful.
Overall, great value, cool ambiance, and by the way, I did check out the shared bathrooms and they were very clean, so while I probably wouldn't choose that option, if I had to, at least I know its not yukky.
PS Could not get wifi to work while I was there, but not sure if it was a problem with the wifi or operator error on my part - luckily I didn't really need it.
Excellent value right in downtown SF. Customer service was great, they actually lost my reservation, I was checking in late after a long day on a consulting assignment, and the lobby was busy as all get out. The front desk agent quickly found me a room and gave me a discount. Plus, she said they had a off season special with free wi-fi.
Also had dinner in their restaurant, Cityhouse downstairs. Pretty good wine list and great steaks. Surprisingly busy for a Friday night, but otherwise, a great experience.
The room itself was pretty standard business class, no complaints, but nothing spectacular either.
Stopped by for a late lunch and yes, its a beautiful location, and very nice on the inside. Yes, they have yummy oysters on the half shell (although the oysters had traveled just a little longer than I had to get there). But, the service is just mediocre, and if I'm paying $6 for a diet coke (and $6 for refills of soda), I expect a lot more than a forgetful cutie.
Overall, decent food, pretty good cocktails, but not good enough for prices.
I dropped in at Office Nomads because I was in the City and had a huge gap between my morning meeting and dinner engagement. The drop in rate is really reasonable, the work area is convenient and the staff is friendly. Much better than noshing at Starbucks for 5 hours!
Very friendly service and authentic (without being scary) filipino food. I love that the pinakbet has crisp, fresh vegetables, usually they are mushy. Everything seems cooked to order and even my haole husband enjoyed his lunch. The chicken adobo is not quite the same when made with white meat, so I would skip it next time, but everything else was wonderful.
