I just returned from a get-away with my sweetie to the Wyndham Canterbury. I had never been to San Francisco, and when I told him where we were staying (near Union Square/ Financial District) he said that would be a great area, and he was right! This is an old hotel restored, and it is really beautiful. There is no restaurant, but one is being built. Shame on you if you can't find food in SF-- everywhere is food, and we successfully ate our way through town. There are small stores nearby too, for snackety stuff. We had a one-bedroom unit with no view but who cares? Walk in any direction and there are plenty of views. Every one of the staff members we met were gracious, up-beat, helpful, knowlegeable, and professional. On my tour (no pressure at all) I saw the Presidential suites, which encompass a whole separate building next door. Impressive, Wyndham! It takes a zillion points to stay in those, but oh well. Kudos to Wyndham for supplying recycle bins in the room! It's too bad there is no stove or cookware in the room, but there is a microwave, refrigerator, DW, toaster, blender, etc. Amusing that there is no stove, but a complete set of sharp knives for......microwave cooking..... whatever. The ONLY drawbacks I found with this hotel were not enough lighting in the bedroom (otherwise gorgeous), and the air conditioner blows directly onto the bed, so you're either hot or cold, depending on if it's on or not. I was surprised to find that the windows actually open (no screen), which was kind of nice. The bathroom was awesome, with beautiful tiled shower and the usual ton of towels. No, I do not work for Wyndham, but one would think that I do because I only have good things to say about their resorts. Go if you can to San Fran and get out and WALK and bike and you do NOT need a car, and who on earth would want to drive there? One hint: we wish we had rented a car for one day to go to Muir Woods (beautiful) and Sausalito, etc, because we succumbed to a tour (Tower Tours, booked at the desk) and ended up bailing in Sausalito and taking the ferry back to SF to escape the tour guide from......well, let's say it was like being on a Saturday Night Live skit with Phil Hartman or Bill Murray doing an impression of gung-ho tour guide, but we were stuck and it was expensive and we wished we could have spent more time at the woods, etc. Just when we thought it couldn't get any worse---the guy NEVER stopped talking, and it was like listening to children's television or being read to like kindergarteners-- he started mentioning the musical celebrities of Marin County and then SINGING bits from their songs.... it was painful. Later after we had bailed we were approached by someone else who had bailed, so we weren't the only ones who were appalled by the experience. Yes, I'm being mean, but his name was John and unless you actually like wanting to poke sharp objects into your ears, better check to see if someone else is driving your bus. Or just rent a car. But then, now there is really something to talk about from our trip!
