Wow, what a great hotel. We enjoyed 3 nights in a lovely suite. The wine tasting, expertly led by Anne, each evening is a great way to meet fellow guests or unwind. The breakfasts are healthy and just what we needed to start the day. Yes, the hotel is at the top of a big hill but it is very quiet at night. It is easy to walk down hill to some great places for dinner and taxi back up the hill for less than $10. Can't wait to stay again next time we're in San Fran.
