“Great Value, Great Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We had a business meeting here and it was a great experience. Great value and excellent staff. Nice waterfront location, free parking and the manager's afternoon reception was really filling and tasty!

Great stay. Rooms clean and plenty of space. Wonderful view of the bay. Breakfast was very good. Best part for me was the 1 mile walk/drive to the SF bay ferry which dropped you off at the Wharf. No traffic, no parking hassles.

I stay in this Hotel as an alternative to San Francisco hotels. The overall experience was good. However, the only thing that is really annoying is the a/c set up. I have a light sleep and each time that the a/c turns off it awakes me.

Quiet, waterfront views, reasonably priced. Shuttle within 2 mile radius. Dinner with wine, and breakfast included during the week. Very clean, comfortable, friendly staff. Close to Jack London Square.

Room Tip: Choose waterfront side as opposite side faces highway and could be noisy.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights. Touropperator made the choice for me. Was assigned a cityview room. Told lady about bad reviews on tripadvisor about the cityview rooms an asked for a waterfront room. She upgraded us without a problem.

Rooms are great!

Breakfast was fine. Free dinner was just oke. Free wine surprised us both!

Drove the rental car to downtown San Francisco. Only took 20 minutes.

This hotel was by far one of the best places I have stayed. The staff was super friendly and even learned my children's names. As my children also learned theirs. Very homey feeling! Would recommend to all.
So a special thanks to Connie, Rudy and Miguel for making us feel welcome!

We stayed two nights and expected a relaxing stay. We checked in late (after 8:00 pm) and our room was ready. We requested a wake up call for the next morning, but never got it. We ran late because of this, which added to the stress of the day. We had prepaid for the two nights but gave the receptionist my credit card for incidentals. However, a statement was left under the door indicating that two nights would be charged to the card I had left for incidentals. I brought the double billing problem to the attention to the front desk clerk who said the problem would be corrected by the manager when he arrived. It wasn't, as another statement the next morning still indicated that I would be double billed. I again took it to the front an stayed until the problem was corrected.

We were also disapointed that a used water glass on the bathroom sink had not been replaced the first night's cleaning. While not a horrible stay, this was disappointing for a Hilton affiliated property.
