This hotel has an excellent location for both tourists and business travelers.
For location, it can't be beat. It's right above the BART (connection to SFO airport) and other metro lines. The California cable car also stops right out front, as do some bus lines. And just a 5 minute walk you can go to the Ferry Building for food, and catch the F train to Firsherman's Wharf (and other stops along the way).
While the hotel was built in the early 1970s, it's very updated, the rooms are large, the elevators are fast. The rooms are impeccably clean and have great furnishings.
The hotel staff is friendly and professional.
The breakfast buffet is expensive (but all big-city hotels are).. but very good. For a cheaper breakfast, there are choices (McDonalds, bagels, etc.) within a 5-minute walk. The large Embarcadero center has several restaurants, too.
Like much of San Francisco, there are vagrants around the block. Unlike NYC in the last 20 years, San Francisco has chosen not to help them. This does require the hotel and local vendors to watch carefully. But that is not specific to this hotel.. it's everywhere in San Francisco. Including on the BART, where on my trip back to the airport a vagrant decided to stand up and pee on the train on the seat next to me. OMG.
While the vagrants are basically harmless, you do have to watch out for them (and keep your kids close at hand). I do not understand how NYC can help them, but SF cannot.
