After searching for reasonably priced hotel, the reunion planning team came to a decision to use Hotel Des Arts as our reunion venue.
The hotel is a "European" style hotel, another way of saying the rooms are pretty small but the price is right for us, the location great... and the staff willing to work with us.

Hotel Des Arts is located close to the gates of San Francisco's Chinatown, a couple of blocks from Union Square and the Powell Street Cable Car turn around.
The rooms are painted by various commisioned artists, so each one is different from another.
My suite was adorned in some girlie designs...this is on the wall of the front room of my suite... some girl on a sailboat.
... one wall had vintage dress patterns decoupaged to the wall. I loved it... so did some friends who used my room for many photo ops... as did these two hotel guests who stopped by - curious of the source of the noise, laughter, and giggles.
One of the bedroom walls... cute, eh?
(I could not find Elizabeth's photo using the same wall for background... it would have completed the Los Angeles contingent.)
Hydie, on the other hand, had the graffitti walls. She said, it was a scary room that necessitated some wine consumption before bedtime.... I on the other hand, did not need excuse for the open bottles of chardonay nor for the uncorked cabs. :)
Lita's scary room.
At the end of our stay, our reunion group was invited to leave our signatures on one of the walls in the graffiti roo m.... We leave our mark! Yeah!
