Disappointed

The hotel would be great for a couple but not a family! The room was VERY small when you use the pullout sofa bed. The bedding for the sofa bed had stains or wasn't washed, yuck! I called the desk and they NEVER brought up clean bedding. I had to carry it to the front desk and rescued the new bedding do my kids could go to sleep. The AC never worked correctly. We ordered room service and put the tray in the hall by our door and it was never picked up. It sat in the hall for 2 entire days! The pool is great for toddlers, as it's very shallow! The best part of this hotel is the Starbucks and the close proximity to AT&T Park.

Great Location and Accommodations

Spent the weekend in San San Francisco to go see some of the sites and attend a giants game. Hotel is within walking distance to AT&T ball park and after attending a night game it was nice just to walk back and crash at the hotel. Hotel is valet parking and has in and out privileges. Hotel room was clean and quiet at night. Would definitely stay here again.

Overnight Getaway

Overall, the hotel met our expectations. Parking was a bit tough to find and the hotel offered parking is a bit to expense for us. We didn't get to use the pool but it looked nice. The price for the location could have been about fifty dollars cheaper for the location.

Great Location

This used to be the best place to stay in San Francisco if you were going to a Giant's game, then the price went through the roof!! Never again.

A great stay & wonderful location!

Great hotel. My room was very quiet and the housekeeping staff was great! I do wish they had a wider array of room service choices, but there were great eateries in walking distance, so I really didn't mind.Oh, but the best part was the coin laundry and dryer available 24 hours. I totally went home with clean clothes!!

Clean and friendly

Staff was great -- friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive. The room was clean and had a gorgeous view of the Bay Bridge with plenty of natural light. Room for improvement: free wifi was slow and the pillows were overstuffed/stiff. Easy fixes and not terribly important.
