We stayed at this hotel for our anniversary and had an absolutely wonderful experience! We were lucky and received an upgrade to a suite for the night. It was absolutely beautiful! The room was not ready when we arrived, however we got there about 20 minutes before check-in starts. The front desk staff was friendly and welcoming and we only... More

Amazing hotel, great staff, great service, great location. The most notable thing about the hotel is the staff. From check in to check out, all the staff were so friendly and kind. The front desk took time to find us a local barber shop in short notice (which was fantastic also). Etienne at the front desk was beyond helpful when... More

Got a GREAT deal on our one night stay that included valet parking. We arrived by air at 9:30am after flying for 7 hours, so we tried checking in before noon, but because of the Pride Parade happening, the street in front of the hotel, Steuart, was closed off from around 9:30am-noonish so we couldnt get to the hotel. That... More

The hotel is located on the Embarcadero, near the Ferry building. The room was small. The bed and bedding were very clean and comfortable. There was a refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. Very convenient. In the lobby they provided coffee and fruit for breakfast. All of the staff members were professional, helpful and friendly. The views of the... More

We stayed in June for 3 nights as part of our California road trip. The hotel far exceeded my exceptions. The rooms was small, but kept wonderfully clean and cosy. It had everything you needed. The staff were brilliant - particularly the two Michaels on reception and the very helpful valet. They all went the extra mile to find information... More

Fairly ordinary hotel. Small room. Very clean, nice view if you can get on the east side. Shouldn't cost as much as it does, given that it's nothing special. Pretty good location. The bed was comfortable.

There are a couple things that made me want to give this hotel 4 stars, such as the delayed check-in process and the smelly, cramped elevator; however, I couldn't bring myself to do it. I love this hotel. Yes, there was a frustrating delay in our scheduled check-in but any frustrations we had were quickly dismissed when we were given... More
