Booked 2 nights here for New Year weekend. We left our luggage to explore the city while waiting for 3pm check in. The receptionist was helpful and accommodating. Actually all of them are, but of course don't expect a hotel type of hospitality. There's coffee, hot chocolate, water and snacks on the counter for guests, of which my companions partook. Location wise, it wasn't a good idea since we took BART. We had to get off at Powell and midway walking, decided to just took a cab. Bottomline, we had to take cabs everywhere, except Fisherman's Wharf. If you don't mind walking, you can walk to the crookedest street, Union Square and Marina. But that is a big waste of time and by the time you get to your destination you won't have as much energy. We booked a double queen room for 4 adults. The room is clean, with coffee, fridge, microwave. Bathroom is huge, but the downside is you have to walk on cold tiles. Just walk in there with your shoes/socks. The towels and amenities are complete. Minor complaints are the old TV and wifi is not working. There's a heater though, which made up for it for me. Going up and down our room, we had to use a really old and creepy elevator so we took the stairs mostly. The next day, I was pleasantly surprised that they made the bed, changed the towels and everything. Don't count on breakfast as I think they buy unsold pastries. Awful stuff to start the day. Just get the fruits. Got the value for my money but will not do it again.
