Great service from Sara at the front desk. Nice room and amazing view at the upper floor. Although the valet parking is pricing which I think is expected in area like San Francisco but still worth it.

The view from the upper floors is fantastic. The rooms are neat, modern, and feature USB outlets, night lamps, and a huge TV. The bed was the most comfortable of the three hotels I've recently visited in the area. The staff is especially friendly and helpful. In particular, Sara went the extra mile to make sure I have a fantastic stay - thanks!

The room is very clean and the hospitality was amazing from the very start. Thank you especially to Sara at the front desk for clear instructions and kindness. The hotel is going through renovations but it makes navigating through the hotel no harder.

The staff is good. The location is extremely good. But when we made the booking, there was no mention that the hotel is undergoing renovation. Wish I knew that. Also we stayed in renovated room. And the things are already falling into pieces.

Beautiful Stay! Refreshed contemporary design, and sleek new interiors, even during construction -- ask for a newly renovated unit. Great location and beautiful spot in the city walkable distance to downtown.
