I stayed in a queen-size bedroom, that was close to elevators, which was torture when I needed to sleep. But the hotel infrastructure, staff and location are good.

Sehr schönes Hotel in super Lage mit klasse Personal. Wir können von hier nur Gutes berichten. Wir kamen bereits etwas früher an und durften trotzdem bereits einchecken und unser Auto parken, wodurch wir unsere Erkundungstour durch San Francisco schon früher beginnen konnten. Danke dafür an das unkomplizierte und freundliche Hotelteam! Die abgeschlossene und sehr große Parkgarage ist hier ein absolutes Plus, so mussten wir uns um unser Auto keine Sorgen machen. Ich würde unbedingt ein Zimmer mit Ausblick empfehlen, dieser ist wirklich super in diesem Hotel. Vieles ist vom Hotel aus bereits fußläufig zu erreichen, aber es gibt auch eine Bushaltestelle keine 2 Minuten vom Eingang entfernt. Die Gegend selbst hat einen sehr sicheren und sauberen Eindruck gemacht. Wir würden bei unserem nächsten Besuch in der Stadt auf jeden Fall wieder hierher kommen. Klare Weiterempfehlung!

Air conditioning in room is loud and doesn’t switch off, staff don’t care and are dismissive on approach, and elevator situation in lobby is a joke.
