When you arrive to your room & the Hotel has a cute, little note accompanied by ear-plugs? Not a good sign. But, the 1st Problem? When I had called to book this Hotel (new to us) - I had clearly asked about their room-types. We travel with a child & like her to have her own quiet space while we can stay up & watch TV. They told me that that would be a 1-bedroom Suite. While this was $50/night more than the Marriott we normally stay at - it was worth it to us to have the separation. Not the case. There's a giant hole in the wall separating the Living Room from the 'Bedroom' - no door. What's the point?! The beds are facing each other just 10' apart. I called right down & they explained I'd need to have booked adjoining rooms if I wanted privacy. Not gonna work. Now, to the noise. Our room bordered Geary Street. The street performer (on the drums) was out 'til 10pm, sirens whiz by throughout the night & bar-hoppers are squealing with delight until 4am! Even with our white-noise on - I got very little rest. Grandma had her own room with an interior, alley view - she slept well. When I called to complain to the Manager re: both the wrong room description + public noise problem - they gave me $20 off my Bill. Bathroom was too small to even turn in - decor is quite comfortable & modern. Housekeeper was friendly - although, didn't get me the spare pillows I requested in person. Elevators are small & slow - not enough for this busy hotel. Great location.
