This was our first trip to San Francisco and we fell in love with this location and hotel. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms, which did tend to get hot. There is no air condition in the hotel so make sure to open the windows and keep the curtains drawn while your out and about. The staff was very attentive and professional. I love the residential neighborhood feel and parking was never an issue. The location is great for dinner down on Fillmore street and you can easily access the Bart if you want to venture out to other districts.
Pro's: the breakfast buffet is wonderful! They have an assortment of fruit (freshly cut and presented beautifully), spreads and jams, biscuits, breads, croissants, and juice.
Wine reception in the evening is great as well, but I quickly learned that wine and cardio do not mix well in San Francisco (the walk down to Fillmore is not bad but you will have to go up hill on the way back to the hotel). They have a great mix of reds, whites and blends, and the wine consultant knew a lot about wines and shared some great suggestions as well as stories!
The room's are comfortable, clean and have everything you need.
Con's: the only complaint and it is was really not an issue once we realized what we had to do was the heat on the first day. We had not opened the windows and once we came back to the room after a day of site seeing, the sun had heated the room up to a point we just could not bear to site in there. Open the Windows's immediately and draw the curtains if you are heading out and you will be fine!
