The Best of San Francisco

It was fantastic! The staff were very accomodating, very pleasant, however, the hot water was turned off on the last day without notifying us which in turn delayed by day by a couple of hours. I had dinner at hotel one evening. Main course was pleasant and not heavy which is what I waw looking for but the Thai chicken wings appetizer were chewy & dry. The room was superb as always, great bed! The cleaning crew were very noisy during the mornings talking to each other and banging things around. Overall the location was accessible to many great restaurants, bars, shows, train, shops. You get a good sense of San Francisco's cosmopolitan life style!

Great Location!

This location is perfect for walking around Union Square, close to Coit Tower, China Town, etc. You can be at Fisherman's Warf in 15 minutes. The cable cars are right next to the hotel. The hotel is on the more stylish side of the usual Marriott hotels. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We can be quite picky but we were pleasantly surprised and would stay here again.

Sears fine food, just down Powell street, less than a block. Be sure to arrive early or go on a weekday morning because the line gets long quickly.

Great service and quality finish but...

Great service, well coordinated to make sure you are taken care of. But i guess i got unlucky with a bad view and two twin beds when we wanted one big bed. Thats understandably a roll of the dice, especially when you check in late on a friday. But to compound that, both beds were very soft. But i constantly saw great service, team interaction (even security guards) that made me see where my money was going... but still didn't help that a nice firm clean bed is the most important. Cleaniness and quality finihings in the room were apparent and abundant... just wished i had a nice view and one big firm bed.

great location

The dinning options in/around the hotel were limited. The licensed cabs are loathe to stop at the hotel. A couple of the cab drivers explained how the hotel staff direct the longer fares to their friends who drive unlicensed 'cabs' and only give the short rides to the metered cabs. However there is plenty to see and do within a couple of miles around the hotel so walking is a great option.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Do not try to get a cab near the hotel. Since the hotel staff will only give the shortest fares to the legitimate cabs and save the longer fares for the unlicensed cars, as a result, the licensed cabs will not stop at the hotel. Cab drivers will pick a guest up but just not right in front of the hotel and certainly not if one of the hotel staff is trying to hail it for you.

Great Location

I use to be a flight attendant and have stayed at an array of different hotels throughout different countries. My flight arrived at 8:10 and by 9 .am. I attempted to check in. As I expected, the concierge told me the room was not ready. He asked for my cell number and called me within a few hours. There were a few things I requested from room service during my stay. The response time was less than a minute. Very courteous staff, would definitely re-book reservations there. One of many perks, the trolley pick up is across the street.

Greatn location

The hotel room was perfect,the staff were very kind and helpful, it was a little noisy at night but I guess it´s normal in that part of town, the location is excellent also, you could walk to chinatown and other points of interest, or you could get on the cablecar just across the street, also across the street there was a starbucks and a walgreens that really helped us out when we needed snaks or something, parking and food in the hotel were pricy, but overall it was worth it.

About 3 or 4 blocks from the hotel there is a cable car station, where you can buy tickets and board the cablecar, we bought the city pass, it enables you to board cablecars and all MUNI transport for seven days, it also includes several tickets for museums, the aquarium, and a ride on a boat around the bay, it costs 59dlls. but it is worth that and more.
