We stayed here at the end of a trip up the Californian coast for a 6 night stop in San Francisco. The parking garage was easy to find to save the cost of valet parking although the self park charge was quite high at $45 I've found this is normal for San Francisco and not the most expensive. During check in we were advised of some renovation work going on and they apologised for any disturbance. We were given one of the (very) newly refurbished rooms, the decor wasn't really to our taste but it was inoffensive and added some character. The room itself was plenty big enough for two (there were 2 x queen sized beds) and the bathroom/shower was great. There was some noise from the road outside during the night but this is fairly typical of staying in a city hotel, although double glazing would certainly have helped! Unfortunately we were woken/disturbed the next morning by the workers banging and drilling for the refurbishment in the room next door, not very pleasant. We did ask for a room change away from the work but were advised that nothing was available straight away and we should check back with them later. We no alternative we had the same noises alarm clock th next morning. When asking for the second time to be moved we were given the same excuse that there was nothing available straight away, the helpful clerk did check and advised us that they would be finishing later that day as th rooms were due to be let. With this knowledge we thought we'd stay put rather than have th hassle of moving. Thankfully the third morning was much quieter and stayed that way during the rest of our stay even though work continued during the day. A happy end to what could have ruined our stay, the staff helped as best they could I'm sure and were not dismissive of our problem. In fact all staff we encountered were friendly and helpful.
The location of the hotel is perfect for Fishermans wharf, being a 5 minute walk. It is also close to the cable cars and trams if you are wanting to go downtown, we had a car for the first couple of days but returned it as it wasn't needed. North beach and little Italy are in walking distance for some really good restaurant. I would certainly come back to this hotel for a stay in San Francisco, next time the refurbishment should be finished!
