Wonderful hotel near Union Square

The staff were great, especially the Concierge, Kathy. Always cheerful and ready to help with whatever I needed. Room was on the small side, but we didn't need much room, weren't there that much. It's right on the cable car line (if you can catch one that has space), convenient to good restaurants and services. Food was pricier than expected, but that was true all over the city.

Great service and good location

Excellent customer service. Very friendly and helpful from door staff, check in, concierge. Everyone was always smiling. A great location with access to public transportation to get to anywhere in the city.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

City Pass--you can purchase at the information center at Market and Powell just 4 blocks from the hotel. Great if you are there for the week. Includes a Muni Pass for 7 days so you can use the trolley, Metro or bus system to get around everywhere and includes tickets to attractions, such as the Aquarium, A Cruise of the bay and more

perfect weekend in San Francisco

O.K. but not 4 stars

I like to think when I get to a 4 star hotel they treat you as such. I have a real problem with being nickled and dimed. They want $50.00 per day to store your car. 1 block away it was $20.00. Then you get charged $12.95 if you want to use WFI or high speen ether net from your room. You can get 1 free hour if you drag your net book or lap top down to the lobby. Not much fun from the 19th floor. Staff behind registration desk was not very knowledgable about the area either. Not a total loss. cause rooms were very nice. beds were supper comfortable bathroom nice size and clean. Maid service quick and efficient. BUses, cable car outside your door. Great location to go anywhere in City.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Get "City Pass" worth every penny. Unlimited trolley, bus and cable car rides, many attractions included. P.S. good for nine days. I was there only four and was able to give remainder to another traveler when I left.

Family Weekend

Staff was extremely nice and helpful. They gave us a larger room with a roll away bed to give our family of four a little more space. The location was very good and we walked to many places, Japan town, China town and fisherman's market. Had concert at Warfield, so that area is sketchy by the tenderloin. Many good places to eat. It was nice place to be for the full city expereince

Great Location, Great Food and Atmosphere!

I had an excellent time. The hotel is situated in a perfect location. The food in the restaurants was perfect but the portion may have been just a bit too much because they left me stuffed. I also enjoyed the bar in terms of atmosphere and beverage selection. Only negative was that the I wish the gym had just a bit more equipment (bench to do crunches on) but the basics were there, treadmill, eliptical, etc..... Had a great stay! Definitely recommend it.

Walk around and do not just stick to the main streets. I found this great Scottish import store on Sutter and was able to get some of the UK candy that I normally can't get unless I' in London! A real treat.
