Well, let me start off with the best things about this hotel. The location was perfect for our needs, the beds were very comfortable, and the staff very friendly and helpful. But ..... I wish this hotel would spend a little money and upgrade their windows. The street noise was intolerable even with ear plugs. We later discovered a fire station was located a block or two away, and since it was the Saturday before Halloween, the engines were busy that night. The following night was the night the Giants won the World Series, and the street noise was unbelievable. So, we probably got maybe 4 hours of sleep per night. My other complaint was the mold on the window in the shower area. It looks like they painted over old mold which is now coming up along with the new mold. Another correction that could be made with new windows.
I understand that this is an older building, but just a little help could make this hotel more enjoyable.
