The best aspect of our stay was the room, which was large, and well furnished. It included a small balcony. I asked for a quiet room away from elevator and ice machines, and got it. Located in a quiet block on Island near both Convention Center (my wife walked to the events there) and the Gaslamp District, it provided a quiet area for arrivals and departures in our car. So, we would return. However, the hotel is starting to show its age. Some of the furniture and the hanging closet doors showed need of attention. The restaurant is only for breakfast and lunch, although competing with the nearby nightlife probably makes in uneconomical for it to be open for dinner. The valet service is hit or miss. It took forever to get our car parked the first night; and we had to handle our own luggage. All in all, a pleasant stay, but the hotel just didn't provide that professional service to make it memorable. Finally, and this is one of my pet peeves with all hotels, the pillows were all microscopic in size, not even twin bed size, let alone king. Why can't hotels go back to normally sized pillows?
