Opened in 1913 as the Keystone Hotel, the Mosser—purchased by composer Charles W. Mosser in 1981—still retains its Victorian style in the lobby with marble floors, wrought-iron banisters, and rich wood paneling. In contrast, the 166 guestrooms have a modern sensibility: platform beds, brown and black linens, and bright accents of red, green, or pink. While the rooms are small and many share baths, the hotel is ideal for budget-minded travelers and is conveniently located within walking distance of Union Square, Moscone Center, and a BART station. Amenities include the adjacent Annabelle’s bistro and a state-of-the-art recording studio.
