you know the song!

Hotel location was THE BEST POSSIBLE. We were 2 minutes from the bus or cable cars which take you anywhere you want to go! Consierge was very helpful no matter how mundane the question. This was not true however with the Tower Tours people at the hotel---they had a hard time tearing their eyes away from their computer screens(surfing) and at times seemed annoyed that a person may not know where something was--but then again I'm a tourist!

Hotel fine/Orbitz misled re: parking

The hotel was fine but Orbitz misled me about the parking situation. When I first brough up the hotel on the internet it stated complimentary parking. However, after I booked it online, there was no mention on parking. I had to pay nearly $50 a night for parking which severly negated the bargain. Orbitz needs to be more careful.

Nice Stay

Hotel is nice and clean and staff is helpful. Beds are very comfy. In central location close to most touristy things. Worse case, its $12 taxi ride to anything.

Perfect walking distance from shopping.

Nicely within walking distance to shopping and landmarks. Lots of places in the hotel to purchase bottled water. (A problem I have had in some other hotels.) The always bustling lobby gives the hotel a nice energy. One negative was the bathroom being so tiny with the toilet right in front of the counter and a foot away from the sink. I barely had room to put things. I kept thinking I was going to drop items in the toilet.

Don't bother standing in the enormous Starbuck's line in the hotel lobby. There's one on nearly every corner.
