SF

Good overall, but the staff was secretive and suspicious when I checked in. They allowed someone who had my last name to take my room. They approached it like we had already checked in, but then the staff person left immediately to find a supervisor. The supervisor was equally coy about what was going on and divulged nothing of value. Finally we were given a room and not told what was going to happen immediately. The staff person called my room to tell me that everything was fine about 30 minutes later. The parking is convenient but really, really, really expensive. $45/night. However, there isn't anything really cheaper for overnight. Great location!

Weekend get away

very helpful and friendly staff. Close to museums, and great part of the city. The only negatives were crummy towels, and slow Internet. But, the positive is that computer in lobby and Internet were free ( as opposed to the Marriott Marquis ). If you need two beds, they were queen size and room was nice size. Way less crowded, less touristy

Great place to stay and go to see the SF

We came to go to the Giants game. We were able to check-in early and walk to the ballpark(about 1 mile away). Nice big clean quiet rooms.

Close to the Stadium

Valet parking was really expensive, but we were only able to save a couple dollars paying for street parking. The hotel was very clean and nice looking. We were checked in quickly even though it seemed everyone was there at the same time. Our room was very clean. The bed was firm but comfortable as where the pillows. There was also a desk and a nice sofa. That bathroom was clean. The shower was super clean and the shower head was very nice with good pressure. The hotel is 15 minute walk from AT&T Park and a great restaurant Gordon Birsch.
