The doorman and desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. They will make a dinner reservation if desired The Farallon is next door and they offer preferred seating. The room was not large, but certainly adequate and nicely furnished. This includes a coffeemaker and mini-fridge. The bathroom was plenty large and with all of the items you might need. We... More

To begin, we called the hotel concierge for directions to hotel on our way to hotel from SFO since our GPS was not working. His name is Bob and he gave us the wrong directions sending us the opposite way towards San Jose. We wasted an hour of our day after a very long day of travel from Miami. Bob... More
