This hotel is fine for a short stay. Room was clean and comfortable and room enough to move around. There was no cover on the air vent, and we were a little uncomfortable about particles blowing out of the unit. The halls and room had a peculiar smell. It was nice to have a micro wave and refrigerator; however the refrigerator was barely cool. There were no towels so we called down to the lobby. They told us that they were out of clean towels, but would bring some up in about 15 min. We were meeting friends for dinner and wanted to take a shower first. Still no towels an hour later – called back down and they finally brought some up, but not in time for us to shower before dinner. Staff was pleasant enough, but certainly wouldn’t call it a warm welcome. One thing that really surprised us was their local guide. For an area that has so many dining establishments, they listed only 7, one of which is in San Francisco. There were only 3 or 4 points of interests. Thankfully we are familiar with this area and really didn’t need guidance, but if we were not, the guide would have been totally worthless. Because we booked through Orbitz, we got a good deal, so we were ok with this hotel at that price, however, if we would have paid the hotel asking price, we would not have been happy.
