  • Great location in the city, very convenient to the Bay Bridge and local transportation, fisherman's Wharf/Ghiradelli Square and the Financial District. The best hotel in sf and near the Ferry Building. Twice the price, worth every penny and s restaurant just off the lobby was excellent. All the staff were professional, the accommodation were very comfortable and the continental breakfast was also a nice treat in the mornings.

    Poor service and nobody cared, tiny, tiny room. Small elevator, mattress too soft.

  • We liked the location and in the evening the bridge was lit up and also beautiful. Hotel staff were all excellent and service was great. The room was quiet and continental breakfast was nice. Matt the manager was amazing.

    Not noisy at all for being a block from the embarcadero and the extra fees for parking are high. The window is small.
