As a hotel Front Desk Manager for a Major chain, and a 1,000+ room hotel in San Francisco, I can appreciate utilizing tripadvisor - it really can make or break you as a property. With that said, I am SHOCKED to read so many good reviews about this hotel - My experience just did not match.
I typically stay with the chain that I work for, but our properties in the city were full so i had to choose another. I checked Tripadvisor and saw the pics and booked because they had a good rate - it was only about $30-40 cheaper than all the others in its comp-set - but hey, thats dinner - right?
At check-in, The place lived up to my expectations. Pretty sweet lobby - cool staff... good guys - and then we got to the rooms... WHOA!!!! I couldn't even bring myself to set my bags down! It was just out dated and really .... just dirty. I'll let the pics speak for themselves - no point in writing a novel. So needless to say that because of this, I immediately lost all faith in the property and felt rather deceived that what they advertise is so far from what they actually have.
Guys & Gals - lets be real - I do his for a living. You can trust me - skip to the next hotel - tons of good ones in the city. Dont waste your time here.
