When Remodeling is Bad
Maybe it's just me, but the past few times I've been to old San Francisco hotels, that I loved for their charm, that have been remodeled in the past few years, I'm always disappointed. Last year it was the venerable St. Francis Hotel on Union Square. The Sheraton bought them out and then remodeled it into a postmodern (or pomo as we wits like to call it) disaster. Don't get me wrong, I like the ultra modern look, but when it's poorly done and without a regard to functionality, it just pisses me off.
