Although I was staying in San Jose for a week w/an old friend, I decided to drive into SF on Sunday morning to reaquaint myself w/the North Beach area. After starting off at Sinbads- next to the Ferry(sic) Building, I went over the hill and parked near Columbus & Broadway. After some shopping I decided to stop at the Saloon- a favorite watering hole w/great live blues/rock and roll music from 4 pm until 2 am- 7 days a week.
Not feeling ready to drive back to San Jose, I stopped at the desk of the Royal Pacific to see if they had any rooms available (some 6-8 years ago I would stay there when I did not feel driving back to San Jose where I was working at the time made good sense).
So the same owner greeted me, said there was a convention and they were booked, but somehow found me a ground floor room- H/C and probably being saved just in case. At 2 am they let me have it for $99 which was the same price I paid back in 2005. Upon checking in to the room I noted there was no A/C , complained and the price went down to $89. The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the next morning the desk man helped me fix my iPhone I had dropped in a glass of beer the previous evening. He said place it in 4-5 # of rice to dry it out. Where I asked would I find rice? He repliied, "... you in Chinatown!!".
So, for a more than reasonable rate I got a good night's sleep, had a FREE PARKING SPOT and
was able to fix my phone with a rice remedy I never would have thought of.
What a bargain- thank you Royal Pacific !
