Great location for families!

Walking distance from a complex with ice skating, bowling, hands on art museum, & IMAX. Also walking distance to a huge shopping mall with an excellent food court. Walking distance to BART stop and major bus stops. (I am calling walking distance 4-6 blocks). Ferry building is an easy, flat, but longer walk. Good food, light rooms, very clean and exceptionally quiet. Great computer in lobby for boarding passes only.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Eventhough eating is close by, it works way better to plan ahead and eat before returning to the hotel for the evening. Chevy's does take out and is only a 3 block walk. North Beach Pizza delivers to the hotel - front desk has a menu.

MY FIRST HOTEL STAY

I was in a vacation to San Francisco for first time and the hotel is awesome with great rooms and close location to city Downtown. There is no parking in hotel and Valet is bit expensive but overall its a decent hotel to stay.

Good location for the price

We were allowed to check in early around 12PM PST. The staff are nice, place is clean but the only drawback is that our room is on the 4th floor so our view was the next building office.

It was great!

The location of the hotel is great as it is near all forms of public transportation. Restaurants are near by and it's walking distance to Union Square and Chinatown. Definitely a good find to stay at!

A good hotel.

It was a great hotel with good service. Thankfully the weather was nice so not so bad walking to see the sites. A little dissappointed that the indoor pool was too cold to swim in since this is one of the main reasons we chose this hotel over others that were closer to Union Square.

Nice location, price's right but parking

We attended a hearing, spent 3 nights, all ends well. The only small/big problem was the parking, we know it will happened, but we didn't expect the parking was REAL EXPENSIVE (THAT MUCH $43.00 + TAX)a night. My husband lived in San Francisco since 1962 and I since 1988. He worked for the City/County of San Fran so we know how parking will effect us. But the Hotel's excellent and we'll coming back for sure. Thank you!

Would recommend for business/pleasure

I stayed in this hotel for business, and was highly satisfied with their service. The staff were quite helpful in making sure that I had a pleasant stay. They had umbrellas ready in anticipation of the weather; helped arrange for shuttle pickup to the airport, gave good recommendations to get around the city, and places to vist. The room was spacious, comfortable, and included free ethernet connection (cable provided). It would have been a bit more convenient if the rooms had free wireless rather than ethernet, but overall the ability to go online in the guest room meant more productivity. The room in which I stayed did not have a mini fridge, but this did not affect the quality of my stay. Overall, I was glad to have stayed here, and would recommend this place to others.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

The LOWES theater + IMAX is just 2 blocks away; SF MOMA is also within a few blocks. The hotel itself is conveniently located near the Moscone convention center, and is near major public bus routes. The above ground trolley is also within a few blocks. Dining options are unlimited in the vicinity.
