Individual guest reviews

  • Views are gorgeous and unbielivable, some hotel staff didnt seem to know decent coffee / morning snack places besides Starbucks. Great location in Financial District close to the office building my meetings were, the rooms are very nice and clean, lcd tv and a well stocked mini bar including a ‘lovers’ kit .

    Restaurant facilities rather poor.

  • The location is great, fabulous food quite probably the best hotel experience in SF and wonderful restaurants in walking distance as well as the Ferry Market Building. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, also, at some point, the heatcooling vents should be cleaned.

    The bed in my room was very uncomfortable and the valet parking took 45 minutes to get my car.

The hotel is clean, staff and service is all around excellent, every employee is very friendly. The rooms are beautifully furnished, and the rooftop terrace is a nice addition.

    Suite was a bit small.

  • Small and great location, the Ferry Plaza has incredible food too, just a 30 minute walk to the Fisherman'. The decor is serene and pleasant, complimentary coffee service is in the lobby and the staff are professional and friendly. Rooms are well marked and cool terraces to relax on outside. Perfect choice to explore sf.

    We loved the hotel and would absolutely stay there again, t as nice as the price, very slow wifi internet. The mattress was a little thin and drinks were undrinkable, my napkin and silverware were dirty. The eggs were not hot.

  • Location was convenient and the design/, we loved our room was large and looked out at the bay. The hotel was excellent, price was very reasonable and staff were consistently friendly and efficient. Bed was very comfortable and ample storage space and was very quiet.

    Not a good value, well nothing really and the towels in the bathroom are awful. Printer charges are ridiculous and gym facilities could be better.
