Editorial review:

The design and service at this trendy hotel are highly praised and it has a great location in the Embarcadero with beautiful views of the bay. It's close to the Ferry Building, which is a great place for foodies. The spa is incredible and the rooms are fantastic. There are also free rooftop yoga and stretching classes held every morning, for those who wish to relax.

  • Gym is small, there is no pool - Staff was friendly and helpful - Outdoor terraces are beautiful
  • Room had a view of the bay bridge - Front desk staff are very helpful - Bathroom was rather lame

            Helpful, friendly staff. Terraces are great, nice views. Easy walk from hotel to local market, ferry, pier. Low key atmosphere. Bar/restaurant busy and fun.

            Access to private parties on the terrace is through hotel room corridor. Loud guests walking by at late hours.
