You can’t beat the location of this hotel near Fisherman’s Wharf. We walked everywhere! HOWEVER the hotel is under construction and the roof repairs were right over our top floor room.

You can’t beat the location of this hotel near Fisherman’s Wharf. We walked everywhere! HOWEVER the hotel is under construction and the roof repairs were right over our top floor room. We asked to be relocated but the desk staff argued with us and wouldn’t do it. We decided it wasn’t worth escalating to a manager because before arriving we tried to get info over the phone two times. We were put on hold for the manager and hung up both times after waiting over 15 minutes. Obviously we were not impressed by the desk staff and management. We won’t be back. Read less

It works - close to all of the tourist attractions - the cable cars - restaurants and even a Trader Joes! But is has definitely been around for a long time and was definitely worn.

It works - close to all of the tourist attractions - the cable cars - restaurants and even a Trader Joes! But is has definitely been around for a long time and was definitely worn. As one sensitive to dust, I did bring my dirty vent photo to the front desk. While they did apologize - during our 3 night stay - it was never cleaned and no they did not discount our room rate. The room rate was actually more on Wednesday and Thursday than it was on Friday - they said it was because of all the conferences in town. This hotel is not really in the business area of SF - so I thought that was odd. If you need parking - they have it but it is so rediculous to park that it's not worth it. I actually rented a car and the pick up location was right across the street from the hotel. I didn't get it until were ready to drive away - that saved me rental days and parking fees! Read less

Hotel was in an ideal location and we really enjoyed our stay here. It’s not until we have left - i now realise there was a pool there which was not shown anywhere or labelled. I loved San Francisco. The American diner was handy but there was no bar so we could have a drink and socialise.
