Layne Hotel - Authentic San Francisco

I stayed at the Layne Hotel in San Francisco as a business traveler in late '05 to attend a conference. I avoided the big chain hotel where the conference was being held in favor of the Layne just a block away. Not only did I save nearly $100 per night, I got to enjoy a much more authentic taste of San Francisco.

The Layne's d├ęcor can best be described as chic in a rustic, bohemian sort of style. The elevator is a quaint old fashion model with a hand-operated door and inner gate, harkening back to an earlier era in this fine city's history.

The Layne is the kind of hotel where the owner/proprieter notices the small cut on your finger at check-in and offers you a band-aid. The Layne is the kind of hotel where the owner's mom (who works the front desk in the morning) greets you with a smile and offers you a fresh brewed cup of coffee, rather than pointing you at the Starbuck's kiosk across the lobby. The Layne is the kind of hotel where the owner's sisters who cleans the room catches you in the lobby at check-out time to make sure you hadn't forgotten that bottle of shampoo you left in the shower.

In short, the Layne is a fine hotel for anyone looking to avoid save some money and escape the cookie-cutter feel of the mega-chain hotels in favor of a more authentic San Francisco experience.

My one piece of advice if staying here - ask for a room on the back side of the hotel if you are a light sleeper. San Francisco is a busy town, and can get pretty noisy at night.
Happy Traveling!

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

great little chinese If you stay at the layne there is a chinese restaurant just around the corner (50yds) it has fresh prawns in a tank in the window and the food is great... fast and very reasonable.....

Layne Hotel This hotel stay was so awful. There where bums at the front door. The floors where really dirty. I got yelled at alot by the manager. In all of my past hotel stays that has never happened to me. I wanted to leave but I had a no refund policy. It was my sisters birthday. I wish I could get my money back from our very expensive and awful experiance. This is by far the worst hotel experiance I have had in my entire life. In order to enter the hotel you have to get the door opened for you and you have to have wait for someone to walk down and check your id. You may not have anyone visit you at all! I did do research before we went to the hotel and the pictures where beautiful. It was not like the pictures. There is NO PARKING! Do not trust the parking lot next door. I witnessed a couple of cars getting hit and the owner of the car asked the attendent what happened and he acted like he didn't know. I have so many more compliants, but I'm afraid they won't all fit.

Buy a MUNI card!!! BUY A MUNI CARD COVERS ALL TRIPS ON BUSES/TRAMS/SOME UNDERGROUND EASY TO USE AND VERY COST EFFICIENT
