We needed a place to stay for one night to see a ball game at AT & T park. From reading other reviews, my expectations were pretty low. On the positive side, staff was friendly and our room faced a quiet street. The shower was really good. On the negative, the room was super small with no air conditioning. Breakfast... More

General hotel issues: No parking on site, $25 per night valet fee with 30 min notice for pick up. (not mentioned anywhere) Continental breakfast, just pastries and fruit juices from the machine. Elevator is not safe and hard... More
