I stayed at this hotel for a week in 1968. The rate was $15 a week. I'm amazed that it is still there. At the time I was working second shift at the Foster's Commissary on Mission Street. Foster's was a chain of cafeterias, sort of pre-McDonald's fast food. This was a summer job while I was in college. I remember going to the the Golden Gate Theater one afternoon and seeing "2001" soon after it first came out. It was jammed and really super (it still is).
