You MUST get a room with the Bay Bridge view! It one of the best views in the city day and night. You can people watch as well as watch the ships go by. Rooms are smaller but very efficient with plenty of storage for your things. Staff is friendly and helpful. I can't wait to return.

This was the 1st stop on our month long honeymoon travelling the west coast of American and Canada. I wasn't sure what to expect as some of the reviews weren't particularly good but you can never truly rely on reviews. We arrived (walked very easily from the Embarcadero metro/BART station on Market Street - only 5 minutes walk) at the... More

We were not overly inspired by this very pricey hotel. Our room, although comfortable and nicely furnished, could scarcely be any smaller and it had no window. Internet access was fine. The staff at the reception desk were OK. The restaurant, called Perry’s, was a great disappointment. I wouldn’t eat there again. There are better choices nearby such as a... More

What the hotel lacks in hotel room beauty is balanced by the friendly service throughout the hotel. The front desk staff is highly accommodating, the housekeeping staff friendly and the concierge aims to please. The rooms are small and a bit tired; the pillows hard, but it is comfortable enough given where the location is. Great walking all along the... More

This hotel has a great location looking over the Bay Bridge. We spent 3 nights there and were not disappointed. Our room was internal and therefore a bit dingy but internally comfortable, clean and inviting. This was after they moved us from the first room as so much was not working! Etienne on reception really went out of his way... More

Ok booked on the reviews I had seen on trip advisor. I was not dissapointed. Yes we were told maybe a room with a view maybe better, but to be honest, how long do you stay in your room. We had an internal room, only a window into a court yard sort of area. But the room itself was clean... More

My wife and I enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel, it has a nice feel to it. The restaurant is obviously very popular and the food is generally good. The staff are friendly in the main and the location of the hotel near to Pier One is very convenient. However the bedroom we were assigned, oh dear what a disappointment,... More
