We liked the room and staff was friendly. Wifi was not great and other guests were terrible. In the late evening and during the night there was a lot of noise from people having conversations in the hallway. Even after asking if they could be more quiet it wouldn't stop. It was like sleeping in a youthhostel.

This is not a fancy hotel, but it's clean, reasonably priced, in one of the fun places of San Francisco, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The street directly behind Lombard (Chestnut) has delightful shops and restaurants. Don't miss the side streets between Lombard and Chestnut they also hold some very fine dining establishments. All in all this is... More

The location is a sure winner! Right on Lombard street, next to bars and restaurants, and also has parking (limited so you might want to keep your car there...) The room we got was facing the street and it was a little loud since the windows did not isolate the sound too well, but it was bearable. The good? Great... More

The room was clean and comfortable. The customer service was excellent. We arrived a few hours earlier than check-in but the front desk allowed us to park our car there so we could go out and see the city without having to find other parking around town, which would have been very costly. They provided a nice map of the... 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.
