HTL 587, an Ascend hotel - San Francisco

Could have sworn there was already a thread for this property, but didn't find one.

I spent a Saturday night in April (iirc, a 16k award with Daily Getaways points) at HTL 587 and really liked it - a central location, the king room assigned was large, and there's a big fancy self-serve Nespresso machine in the lobby. The Tripadvisor reviews are unfortunately a mixed bag because of the sketchy Tenderloin neighborhood, its people, and noise. Yes, the accordian elevator door is a pain/weird and the hotel entrance is a non-handicapped accessible two steps from the sidewalk without a handrail, despite the hotel claiming to be accessible. If all that doesn't put you off, and the price is right, I recommend it.

Yesterday, I booked a Sunday night and a Friday night to bookend a December trip next month and the rates start at $77 non-refundable king! My bookings are $90 AARP ($104 all-in) for 2 doubles.

Thanks for the review, I was just looking at that property - you had me at "Nespresso"
I used to live in SF, so not worried about the neighborhood. Are the online photos a fair representation of the rooms - or pure photoshop?

I may have filled my 20 oz Contigo travel mug a time or two while there.

IME, not photoshopped. My room looked exactly like this one: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Re...7&ff=325835345

Stay and report back!

Wow, thanks for this. I'm a regular SF visitor and understand the challenges the Tenderloin may present, but for those prices, definitely worth it!

Something's amiss. I checked random 2019 dates every month between April 29 and Dec 1 and there is no availability. So I picked up the phone and talked to the front desk clerk who doesn't know why.
