The hotel is pretty nice, and clean and conveniently located near the gaslamp district with many nice (but pricey) restaurants closeby. Taxi to hotel from airport is about $11.
There are some minor things that people should know:
(1) it is right across from the greyhound bus station. There may be broadcasts at 4:30am annoucing buses leaving. It is ok if you are still on eastern time zone.
(2) a tram line runs right next to the hotel, so if you plan to hold a meeting then occasionally the tram noise will drown out the speaker.
Therefore, ask for a quiet room and at a higher floor. I stayed on the 7th floor and had no problem whereas colleagues on the 3rd floor was a little bothered.
