This is a nice-looking hotel in the center of San Francisco's Financial District, close to North Beach, Chinatown, Embarcadero/Ferry Building, Union Square. It's got an "upscale" look but otherwise lacks in character. The driveway where you stop to unload is cramped and the lobby area feels ad-hoc, or at least not very attractive. Still the rooms are comfortable and large enough, and the service is outstanding.
Unfortunately there are a number of little annoyances that cause me to want to give it 3.5 stars: leaving only one robe in the room even thought they know there are two guests; making us ask for a coffee maker and not giving us everything but tea bags; charging an outrageous $54 per day for parking; promising a $5 coupon for skipping room service and at checkout telling us we have to sign up for their points plan to get it; leaving the absolute minimum number of towels necessary in the bathroom.
