This is a really great hotel. Staff are outstanding, in particular, Blase on reception was exceptional. Breakfast is first class. Our room was well equipped and offered a good view of Alcatraz.
It's right next to the cable car turnaround, so it's really easy to get public transport to the rest of the city.
The icing on the cake is "compulsory" free drinks between 1700 and 1800 in the lobby. I haven't come across this before and it surprised me how many people we got to know that otherwise we'd never have spoken to.
Only mild criticism is room 411, one of the king suites, is above Starbucks which opens at 0500. The Starbucks staff appear to start setting up at 0430 when my wife and I were woken by them moving supplies around and playing music. To their credit, the hotel staff moved us as soon as we spoke to them about it. I suggest that the hotel management needs to do something about this as 411 is an incredible room, but I wouldn't stay in it again unless the Starbucks problem was resolved.
An outstanding hotel with outstanding staff. I'd be delighted to visit again.
