I normally stay at large chains such as Hyatt, Marriott, Fairmont, etc., but decided to take a chance on this hotel, as the location was extremely convenient for me and it was a short, last minute trip. After reading some of the other reviews about the construction noise and area, I was a bit nervous about the quality of my... More

The hotel staff was amazing and the service was great. The surrounding areas of this hotel are sketchy however. Not too many places around here to eat and drink for night life. This hotel does provide easy access to the airport (metro) and anywhere on the metro line. Hoped onto the metro to see a warriors game in about 20... More

If you know your way around San Francisco, this is an excellent hotel. Recently redone rooms (including bathroom) AND a pool! Very close to transit (BART and Muni) means you can get to where you're going.

The hotel itself is nice, rooms and common spaces are clean and modern. The personal is nice and friendly. The problem is the zone.... scaring, I know that is not a fault of the hotel but I travelled alone and I was afraid to go out in the evening! I didn't feel safe out of the hotel. The room (a...

The construction across the street is AWFUL, got earplugs, but steel heard the noise. I wish I had a room far away from it. Had breakfast in the restaurant, it was fair. Front desk personnel very helpful and friendly.

Nice Hotel, good location. Good size bedrooms. Not too impressed by the quality of the breakfast. Extremely impressed by Mark at the front desk. Mark is highly professional, customer focussed, polite and helpful. A big asset to this hotel! Not sure what his job title is and if he's not had a promotion, he should get one soon! Best front...

stayed here on business. The location is fine. Staff is helpful and will organize transportation. Rooms, hallway and lobby are clean. Hotel offers earplugs for light sleepers that might be bothered my construction noise or trash trucks; I had no problem. Lobby restaurant is average. I was just happy to have coffee in my room. Yea for coffee.

Let me lead off with this. I have nothing but praise for the staff, they are clearly doing the very best that they can and they were helpful, friendly, hard-working and competent. But. Oh, but. This hotel is suffering from what is clearly a lack of investment in the physical plant and operational capabilities needed. Hundreds of little things -... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
