There is much to love about this beautiful oval towering hotel. The rate is Very reasonable considering the location (just a minute from downtown or the medical school and a walk across the street from Market). The employees are all very warm and professional. I love the abundant free parking that is right outside the door (no big hike past valet areas like so many hotels). There is a good gym (that was being used a lot) next to the outdoor pool and hot tub (both nice and warm for our January stay).
Just two minor room complaints (not deal-breaking by any means). Our room had a slight sour odor (my wife didn't notice) and the shower didn't drain very well. Overall, the room and beds were comfortable and the view of downtown was great. Our football team was staying there (a pleasant surprise) and we had the chance to visit players the elevators.
Not far are hotels like the Omni and Hyatt, which are also very nice, but near twice the price.
