With the exception of our valet and two pool bar bartenders the staff here are young, inexperienced and in some cases downright rude. We couldn't get service at all in the main bar 207. We prepaid for the trip, including all fees, but were charged an additional "mandatory resort fee" upon checkout for amenities we did not ask for or...

Stayed here for a conference. This was a perfect place to stay because it was literally across the street from the convention center. No cabs needed, everything was in walking distance! I loved how Gaslamp had a mixture a shopping, and great restaurants nearby. In regards to the staff, they were very accommodating to my needs, with very little wait...

Great location. Easy access and walking distance to Gaslamp and Embarcadero. Small but efficient room. Staff was great...very friendly and attentive. Rooftop patio is a nice place to unwind by the fire with a local brew.

Our stay was excellent !! Check in was fast. Our room was outstanding !! Very clean and great layout. Location is great for taking in the Gaslamp Quarter. You can walk to wherever you want to go. My advise is to use Uber rather than taxi !! A lot cheaper !! Would stay here again.

If you're young and want a party vibe this is the hotel for you. The rooms are very modern and dark. On weekends the hotel can get very crowded and be very loud late into the night because of people drinking and partying. Its located right at entrance to the gaslamp district. Endless amount of bars and restaurants right out...

Just got here last night but flew in late and was treated by a very friendly and helpful front desk agent named Olivia. She took the time to accommodate my requests and went through the many features of the property's offerings. Was nice to meet a friendly face after a long trip... great job.

If you are attending a conference and getting reimbursed, then stay here for your meeting, its only a 5 minute walk to the convention center. Also, location good for Gaslamp restaurants. The rooms are kind of tight with the double beds, not much room for walking around. Housekeeping did a good job. Water was very hot for showers. Lots of...

I stayed here this weekend with my husband and had an incredible time. The room was nice, nothing too glamorous but not understated either. The entire hotel makes you nostalgic for all the great musicians life has given us. We checked out the rooftop bar and the view was mesmerizing. There was a relaxed vibe, nothing pretentious, just great music...
