A wonderful stay. Staff was quite friendly. We checked in earlier than thought, yet staff easily accommodated us. Room was very clean, comfortable with a great view of S.F. Huge TV. We utilized the valet parking with a reasonable cost (regular parking available in underground facility...also reasonable, esp for S.F.) Central location worked with eateries down the road. Hotel breakfast...

Everything was perfect during my stay, even with the renovations happening. Clean rooms, thoughtful service, privacy... I will definitely be recommending this to friends and colleagues traveling to San Francisco.

Had a great over night stay. Meet my sister and brother-in- law for dinner and went to a play. I visit the city usually once a month and visit family and friends. Also like shopping in the city. And the great restaurants.

Apparently there are good values to be had at this hotel during its renovation process. That's one reason why we picked it for our family stay on the SF portion of a week-long California vacation; the other was its location in Japan Center in Japantown, as an interesting alternative to downtown, Union Square, or Fisherman's Wharf. The hotel is old...

Great location in the city. Excellent food in many places nearby. Staff warm and friendly. Easy garage parking. Rooms have a great layout and were very clean and inviting. I really appreciate a hotel with patio sliding doors and fresh air!

Overall I had a great stay. The renovation will add a new dimension to the hotel. I used the gym a few times during my stay and the equipment is fantastic. Overall great place to stay in the Bay area.

My wife and I stayed here in early March '17. It is a lovely place and with their remodel, is getting even better. Our room was large and very comfortable. Bed was great and decor was Japanese centric and very pleasant. The remodel efforts did not bother us... heard first noise at 9:30. Parking is super convenient and less expensive...

Definitely was not what I expected from the lavish pictures on the website. The ammenities that were noted on the website did not exist in the hotel. The room was old, the coffee cups were extremely dusty and with lipstick stains. The TV was a computer monitor screen. There were 2 guests in our room but only enough bath salts...

Price offered by the reservation team was not the same charged. Be sure to check and recheck at the check in time to avoid problems. We were without internet so we called the hotel directly. And since we had not e-mail access, we got a nice surprise with the bill left under the door the following morning. The front desk...

I've stayed here multiple times for business because the rooms are always very clean and I like the location since there are so many restaurants nearby. Beds are always nice and comfortable as well. I had a lot of wifi problems the last time I stayed, however. The ping was really slow during busy times so basically I couldn't play...
