The staff tries hard but it doesn't overcome the negatives about this overpriced hotel. The decor attempts to be sophisticated and posh- "classic" paintings and sculptures, furniture from a bygone period, etc. It fails and comes across as dilapidated and outmoded.
Checking in takes ages. The best word I can think of for the bed is squishy. It's definitely not firm. WiFi is quite weak; I tried all of the available networks. At least they have multiple routers. The breakfast needs improvement but it is edible. The scrambled eggs were weird looking. The cheerios and fruit was good.
Overall, it's not worth the price even if it is the Bay Area. If it's a choice between this and a roach motel, then stay here.
