We have just returned home after a 10 day stay in America - 5 of these days where spent in Sanfrancisco at the Metropolis hotel.
This hotel has a great array of positives -
We got the shuttle in from the Airport fine and dandy, all well on that score. we checked in to be greated by a pleasant man, who highlighted that there would be complimentary tea and coffee served in the Library between 8am and 10am. Normally in the USA its room only nothing added extra at all. He also gave us a list of diners that would do breakfast.
The staff also highlighted we could have free wireless in our room, we used this to get onto our mobile phone and check places out, also there was a free computer to use, it was a little exra that really helped.
The rooms are fine, yes a bit plain and the soundproofing could have done with some attention, but always cleaned everyday.
The Location - here is where it wins and loses at the same time.
What a great location to get to anywhere in the city - on the F line your at fishermans wharf, take a bus ride to the coast, tale a walk and your at union square, the underground is just round the corner too, probably the best thing about the hotel is how it links in to other attractions and transport................................ But......heres the downside.
The whole place felt adgey, an undertone that could make you feel unsafe. I was clock watching most nights to get back to the hotel before dark.
The noise in the evenings also became frustrating from police sirens to people drumming and whailing in the early hours.
Many homeless and people that seemed kind of strange liked to hang around the place.....but this personally did not effect the stay and we would visit this hotel again.......
