I booked this hotel with no prior knowledge except reviews found online, some which were good and some not so good. We found it very convenient and fairly quiet but extremely convenient to public transportation which was a consideration. We rode the BART from the airport right to the front door and back again. We used the subway once and the muni buses many times. The buses are clean and efficient and on schedule. When you go to a bus stop you can dial 511 and enter the ID number of the stop and it will give you the schedules and numbers of each bus that stops there. How convenient is that. We had one that stopped right outside the door that we could catch right by Ghirradeli Square and ride safely back each evening when we were done sight seeing.
The drivers were helpful and courteous . As seniors we rode cheaply and it is way better than renting a car and paying $40-$60 per day to park at your hotel and trying to negotiate the hills and lack of parking at other venues.
The Whitcomb staff was courteous and helpful, especially the concierge'. They have free wifi and you can use the business center computers by the concierge' desk to print your boarding passes for free.
The area around has some homeless people that show up every evening but they never bothered us.
Overall, we found it a good place to stay with clean rooms, quick elevators and helpful staff.
The halls were rather dark but they were not long.
There is a restaurant but we never ate there so I cannot give an opinion. There is also a Starbucks right in the corner of the lobby and we did take advantage of that a few times. There are some nice small local restaurants across the street that serve more than adequate breakfasts. My husband and I ended up splitting them most of the time as they were so large.
