We had such a wonderful stay here! Staff was incredibly friendly and seemed like they were happy and having a good time at work. The room was beautiful - the recent renovation was top notch. Hadn’t been there since before the reno and it is truly stunning. Overall a wonderful trip! We will definitely be back soon.

Rooms are in need of update. Bar and restaurant need to stay open later. Security needs to patrol and night more to keep public quieter. Water pressure issues in shower need to be addressed. Old in room ac units need to be replaced!

Great place to stay for special occasions! My wife and I loved all the amenities the hotel offered. Great walkability! Fantastic restaurants on the warf, and cannery row. So much to do, great rooms with a view or secluded courtyard patio options. Can't wait to stay here again!

Hotel is really nice. We did miss not having a fridge or coffee maker in our room, but there was coffee in the lobby. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly and genuine. They helped us with suggestions where to go and how to get there. The only issue we had was the very early morning noisy garbage collection outside of our room which woke us up much earlier than we wanted.

I loved the hotel, its amenities, and location! Close to art museum and several restaurants nearby. The bed is very comfortable. Pool and hot tub are nice pluses. Drinks at the bar were great too. Highly recommend!
