Oyster Hotel Review
Boutique hotel with a '60s aesthetic that draws tourists and business travelers alike
The hotel's overall design aesthetic has a mod, '60s vibe, which is particularly evident in the guest lounges located throughout the hotel. Each lounge is decorated in a different color scheme and outfitted with cool, funky furnishings, such as a clear plexi bubble chair and molded polymer wall coverings. Business guests have commented favorably on the lounges, as well as the conference room and 24-hour business center. The hotel is also popular with tourists who want a stylish but snug base for exploring local points of attraction.
Located close to Union Square and near the slightly seedy Tenderloin
The Diva is situated on a commercial street filled with street-level businesses that is close to Union Square. The hotel is also near Powell Street, which is San Francisco’s theater district. It is within walking distance of a considerable amount of retail shopping and large department stores. BART, buses, and cable cars are all within a block or two of the hotel. The Tenderloin, a slightly seedy area of town known for its transient street population, is also a few blocks away; single travelers may want to exercise caution returning at night. The Powell Street Bart (less than a 10-minute walk from the hotel) provides direct access to San Francisco International Airport, which can be reached in about 40 minutes on the train.
Hip, small rooms with '60s-style furnishings and fun decorative accents
Entertaining touches help to add fun to the small rooms here. Confetti-pattern carpeting and shades with images of women’s garters printed on them add stylistic flair to the suites, which also feature chrome sconce lighting and Eames-style metal chairs. Beds get good reviews. Guests have noted that the bathrooms can be tiny. Most contain a shower/tub combo. Though street-facing rooms have better views, they tend to draw a considerable amount of noise because windows have not been updated. The AC units also seem particularly loud to some guests.
