Family get away

Rooms recently renovated and staff very accommodating. Not as close to sightseeing, but used cable car system to get everywhere which added fun! Front desk suggested to ask for short time discount pass to save money on cable at.

Surprise parking fees

We arrived at the hotel just to find out that we have to pay an extra $80 plus tax for parking ($40 per day). The location was great and I know that parking is impossible in San Francisco, however I would have liked to know that I will have to pay extra for parking when I booked the room. The parking was not mentioned anywhere, so I assumed it was included in my stay. I just wish I was informed prior about this fee, which ended up being a third of my room reservations, so I could research other parking lots in the surrounding area or simply prepare to pay the extra expense. Other than that, the hotel was great, room was clean and the staff was very friendly, would definitely recommend for a stay in San Francisco, but expect to spend a lot more.

good disability bathroom facilities

Good experience. We were given a room just a few doors from our friends from overseas which made our visit much more convenient.

Comfortable stay in San Fran

I was only in San Francisco for 2 1/2 days and this was a great spot to stay. It was on a direct bus route to the Wharf, direct access to the cable car and right down the street from the Herbst Theater where I was going for a show. Very nice staff and room was average but comfortable and I had a great view of the city.

terrible internet service

Service at cafeteria (breakfast) was very slow, and didn't provide buffet as advertised. Wifi connection was terrible, extremely slow and stopped constantly. Parking in the hotel was very expensive.

regular ol' hotel

Nothing special. Had what you'd expect. Wifi was just a little bit flaky, but complimentary. Staff was sometimes curt, and refused to be flexible about an accidental $15 movie charge. No breakfast. I doubt my wife will go back.

weekend getaway

If you are traveling as a tourist,then you probably won't stay in the hotel too much. Thus,as tourists the only time we were present in our room was in the morning(shower, get ready) and at night (take shower, internet,bed). Nice,clean room. Overall, average hotel for short-time visitors.

Too many extra charges

The only thing that I notice from another cities that I been before it's that they charge 41 dollar per parking per night wich is too much money when they supose to provide at least a parking space to each guest. The other situation was that they charge a bussnes center fee if you want to print out you boarding tikets when in Vegas ny, los Angeles hotels they don't charge for this service. It's a beutiful city but too expensive too....?
