Consumer Mind Fucking 101: Make the customer think they're getting more than they've paid for. This listing proffers a "unit equal in functionality to a larger One bedroom" in "lower Nob Hill" whose wall bed is tricked out with a "luxurious Tempur-Pedic mattress" therefore making the studio "equal to 4-5 star hotel accommodations" at "the equivalent [rate] of under $100/day!" Totally! [Craigslist]
