The hotel was undergoing a remodel and the floor we stayed on was one of the first to reopen. There were some issues but they resolved what they could and comped us for parking for what they could not fix. Excellent location and staff and we’d definitely stay there again.

Wow! Great, elegant, tasteful, yet artfully modern remodel of this grand classic hotel. The bar is hip and bustling, and dinner was truly exceptional, (and we are spoiled foodies!). Our room (facing the tennis courts) had a spectacular panoramic view, including downtown San Francisco and the Golden ...

This Hotel is in a great location. It actually feels like a motel as all rooms open either to the pool or the balcony above. My room was fine as far as cleanliness but the design feels dated and tired. The property has huge potential if refreshed. I would stay here again because of the location and ...

This older boutique hotel is located right next to the convention center which is perfect as that is where I was attending an event. The room I was in this time was spacious and very nice. However because I was facing out to a main street it was noisy a bit later in the night than I would have ...

Nothing to like really. In most ways it was sufficient for a budget traveler. It could be cleaner for sure as I found a few hairs in the bed but otherwise it was “clean”. The shower took forever to drain so you were standing in your own shower water when you were done. The tv was small but worked. ...
