Choose this lower Nob Hill crash pad if all you care about is an awesome location and basic but clean accommodations. Minutes away from Union Square yet far from Tenderloin sketchiness, the Grant is a rare find. Its bedspreads are dated, the bathrooms are tiny, and there’s no air-conditioning (though that’s almost never an issue in this temperate town). But the price is right, especially if you’re here to enjoy the city, not the room. Complimentary continental breakfast is served in the lobby, where there is a spacious seating area. There’s a 24-hour front desk person, but don’t expect him to be your travel agent. This is bare bones at its best.
