One thing this hotel house is location - only 1 block from Cannery Row, aquarium, etc. The problems we encountered is that this hotel is poorly designed. We were here as part of a long trip down the coast. Therefore, with my husband and 2 kids (8 and 11), we had 2 suitcases and 3 duffels. Kids are old enough to wheel their own bags - problems occurred when going to our 3rd floor room. You go up elevator with luggage cart, but upon exiting, you have to go down about 6 steps, go outside to outside entrance room, and then up to room which is about 8 steps up. It was a very strange set up and if anyone was a bit older or needed help carrying, etc., they could not do it. Forget about it if you have a cane and need to get your bags to your room. Also since this is an Express, there is no bell boy to help. We only stayed 1 night and we of course had to make the trek downstairs the next day. This is actually our only complaint - the location was great, the breakfast was great, the hot tub was decent. However, I would not choose to stay here again for the aforementioned inconvenience. The alternative would be to stay on the 1st floor -- we did not realize this inconvenience when checking in - although we are not "first floor" people to begin with - always like to stay a bit higher.
