We loved the history of the lobby. Beautiful hotel.

Everything was excellent. Especially like the wine hour. Will definitely stay again. Just can’t say enough good about the Sir Frances Drake

The timer on the bathroom was obnoxious because the light went off while I was in the shower. I had to fish around in pitch blanch darkness to find the light switch. Also the toilet runs every time you flush it. My advice, fix the toilet and with the savings you can forget about the light switch timer.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!! Horrible experience!!!!! Do not recommend!!!!!! Paid $70 for valet- guy did not get us a cart for our luggage nor help in any kind of way while it was raining which would have been the least he could do. On top of that he did not tell us we had to call 20 min prior to leaving to get our car Thus making us wait ONE HOUR in the cue because they held our car hostage and “there was nothing he could do” says the valet guy. Thanks a lot! Room was dirty and small. When we called for housekeeping nobody answered after numerous attempts so I had to call with my own phone to the front desk which they still never brought my extra towels. Place has no customer service. Valet was the worst experience of my life.!!!’ Telling all my friends to not stay here. WORST HOTEL IN SF!!!

The live music on Saturday night was nice. There were too may people in the lobby, though.

very nice building, well designed room in 3 days cleaning lady didn't find time to clean it. we just asked to change our towels when we see her

Old and not kept in shape. Rooms very small. A real disappointment.

The location of the property is awesome. However this time there were some areas that needed attention such as the air conditioning unit, the room location, first nights room was not available upon check in so had to move to a different room.

You shouldn't have to pay to clean your room …..have never experienced that before at any hotel having travelled extensively, especially when there is a $29 extra charge for service. Also there was a complimentary tea and coffee which was at the paying area.....was a bit confusing...ended up buying breakfast instead, and I don't want to leave my room just to go get some coffee,,,,should supply that in the room. Overall good experience!

The hotel was great, the consider was not helpful all
