The hotel location can't be beat. It's just 4 blocks away from Pikes Market and various water front restaurants and attractions. It is also centrally located near tons of shopping!
House keeping failed to clean our room one day so we dialed housekeeping to inquire why. They said it wasn't cleaned because we probably had the Do Not Disturb placard hanging. I know for sure it wasn't as we are diligent about removing it when we leave for the day. However, they said they would send someone up immediately so we went downstairs to wait in the lobby. We figured 30 minutes should be sufficient time, but when we returned to our room, it still wasn't cleaned.
While the hotel boasts it provides free wifi (and numerous hotspots throughout the hotel), it is extremely spotty. When you do receive connection, it is extremely slow. We utilized the internet to locate attractions and obtain directions. Even the computer provided by the hotel had horrible internet connection!
The parking fee is also extremely high! Other than it's awesome location, the hotel is just mediocre.
