Great central location for the San Francisco area if you are wanting to see all around the Bay Area. Within a block of an East Asian market with plenty of restaurants, bakery and even a Starbucks. Apple world headquarters is just a 5 minute drive and their employee store is open to the public. So if you want things you can't buy anywhere else like t-shirts, hats, binders etc. go there.
If you want to spa at the hotel it's out of commission as its being redone and the pool isn't heated. Although its a nice hotel they keep the hallways so cold you almost see your breathe. The front staff I found was indifferent at best.
