Good location on the edge of town, with views out to the East Bay (not the harbor). As everyone posts, the sound of the waves is probably the best feature. next is the shower. Updated, tiled and roomy, with a double-headed nozzle for a great shower.
Nice comfy bed. VERY clutch laundry room.
The reason I marked it down from Very Good to Average: It is spendy, and when you factor in a couple issues, which I found a little surpriseing for a hotel in this price range, I felt it needed to be marked down.
1. The breakfast area is nice but the offering for a luxury hotel are pretty bland. The orange juice is pretty tough to stomache. The eggs appeared to be powdered. Had a pancake-making machine that did not seem all that appetizing. again, for a hotel in this price range, I thought I was justified in expecting a bit more in that area.
2. The TV not only was not high-def, I don't even know if it was standard def. The picture was pretty bad.
Overall, a good hotel. And the positives far outweight the negatives. I am simply speaking in terms of value. I thought the price was a bit high given the negatives.
