Pros Great location - I walked from Golden Gate Bridge to the hotel and it didn't feel exhausting. Staff - Friendly staff Cleanliness - Rooms were clean. Breakfast - plenty on offer. Cons For what we paid and the price jump for one day the room was small. To much water in the toilet bowl. The shower was either hot... More

This hotel was very well located and was generally in pretty good shape. The underground parking was tight, but we traveled everywhere by foot. The breakfast was really good--a greater variety than most Comfort Inns we stayed at--with lots of seating.It's a reasonable (uphill) walk to the curvy part of Lombard street and then downhill to China Town. Fisherman's wharf... More

Typical budget hotel, but with very small rooms and no refrigerator/kitchenette/living room. If you only care about a clean room with the very minimum then this is an OK hotel. Decent complimentary breakfast.

She never cracked a smile. Dealt with her near end of stay on query re airport transfer. I had slip with phone number, but she told... More

Perfect location and great staff. The view of the San Francisco bridge from my room was unexpected. Wish they had a mini fridge in the room however. Although there was street noise it got very quiet at night and I slept great. Would come again.

This was my first stop in the United States, we all had just arrived in San Francisco after our 12 hour flight from Sydney.... we got there and one of the elevators had broken (I understand that they couldn't help it but it was a big pain in the butt for 40 kids) The second night there we all had...

Checked in early with no problems, front desk staff very helpful and accommodating. 10th floor room had amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge - was big enough for 2 doubles and a roll away bed and way exceeded our expectations based on reviews here. Enough street parking around to check in before dropping the hire car at Fishermans Wharf... More

Ok location, not quite by the bay, more like 20 minute walk to the shore. Pier 39 a highlight but again about a half hour walk to get to. Comfortable and clean room although ours looked out onto a block of flats, so didn't have any view and had to keep the curtains drawn so no one could see in.... More

The room was large enough and had what we required. Staff was friendly and helpful. Have never travelled overseas before it was like a new adventure. American style buffet breakfasts are OK once you work out what you like. There was always plenty of fruit and beverages. Once you worked out how far you were from most places of interest,... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
