The staff was amazing. I felt welcomed and safe during my entire stay. The pillows were so comfortable. The concierge told us about the bus tours to Alcatraz. They offered dining right in the hotel as well. Fun activities are just a short Uber ride away. Definitely will return.

Don’t book this hotel through a 3rd party provider as I booked 2 rooms and both are next to the elevator. Noisy as hell and as such we won’t be back. The Front desk staff were no help at all in trying to resolve our issue. I’m certain if we had booked direct with the hotel we would not have such a crappy room.

The location of this is very good. Close to multiple eating establishments and public transit (streetcars). The rooms are small but do provide everything you need for a multiple day stay. Only thing I did wish was that the pool was indoors.

Convinient for seeing the city. There is a cable car and tram station nearby. Can be abit crowded with tourists and airline crew . Otherwise nothing special apart from the warm and welcoming concierge greeting you everytime you leave and enter back .
