My family and i are staying in the Stanyan Park hotel and i was wondering if it was any good, what are the pros/cons?
It is a ok little hotel in one of SF most famous neighborhoods but it's location near GG Park means that there will be street people hanging around day and night which might not be comfortable for a family.
I've found trip advisor is best way to check out a hotel before you check in. http://www.tripadvisor.com

Check out one of the websites that rates hotels and gives you all the information you would ever want. A good one is www.hotels.com.
The neighborhood is fine. SF is so small, that you if you are in one of the 3 iffy neighborhoods, you only need to walk 1/2 a block to rejoin civilization.

Never stayed there, but it looks nice and it's a cool neighborhood - right smack in the middle of the Haight, next to Golden Gate Park. Hippie hill is basically right across the street in the park.
