5* service from all-----bellman, front desk staff!
We were in San Francisco for 2 nights before heading up to Vancouver for the 2010 Olympics. Hotel Monaco was in a good central location for visiting the many sights of San Francisco. Upon check in at 11 pm, we were greeted by a pleasant front desk staff AND a great bellman , orig from New Jersey- We were told that our room was an upgrade to a 1 broom suite ( I did call that AM and told the front desk that we were coming into SF for our 40th bdays AND 10 yr wedding anniversary) . This was a pleasant suprise to both of us- Our room also had chilled champagne with a card from the staff wishing us Happy Bdays and happy anniversary! WOW--Nice way to start a vacation!!!
The suite was on the 7th floor- Nicely appointed- Clean, spacious-- the hallways were also nice-not your typical hotel look-
Each night at 5pm, the hotel served wine at their happy hour next to the lobby. We arrived 5 minutes past the end of happy hr- the front desk gave us 2 coupons for a complimentary wine at the bar adjascent to the hotel lobby! Another WOW!
Many restaurants to choose within a few blocks from the hotel- just have to ignore the MANY homeless people scattered throughout the streets.(big dissapointment in all of SF- unfortunatley)
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel to anyone visiting in the SF area- may just recommend a room on a higher floor and possibly not facing the road, as traffic noise is faintly heard in the rooms.( typical in any city hotel-coming from NYC area)
