I booked this hotel at a very reasonable rate. I arrived but the gate was closed so I had to park on the street (bring quarters). I checked in easily, and was given the single king room at the top floor. The building itself is beautiful, a testament to the character of classic San Franciscan architecture. The hotel is located...

I stayed here over the long Memorial Day weekend. Due to other cancellations, it was booked the day of arrival. While it is certainly not a luxury hotel, for the $100 per night total that we paid over a holiday weekend, I would recommend it if you are looking for a centrally located hotel. The hotel is about a 15...

The hotel itself was actually a relatively cool art-deco, European style hotel. The rooms were clean, although the ones along the street were loud. Their continental breakfast was nothing but a joke with pathetic looking fruit, stale pastries and possibly the worst coffee in SF. Also beware of the gate on their parking area, it will close on the back...

The room itself was OK, but the walls are very thin and you can clearly hear people above and next to you. We were awakened at 7:45a by some very loud young kids above us. The door lock from the outside on our room was very unsecure but it had a deadbolt we could use when inside the room, so...

As my friend and I arrived at the embassy hotel late thursday night we were greeted by a nice man at the desk. For a reasonable price in a fair location it seemed perfect for the night but that was far from true. The first room we were given seemed to still be inhabited with empty beer cans and unmade...

Not sure where to start really. The room was dated and smelly. The bathroom had what appeared to be bloodstains on the floor, the shower reminded me of a shower from Prisoner Cell Block H. The corridors were dark and dingy. It looks like this place has not had a lick of paint since it was built in the 1930's....

Nice service. FREE PARKING THROUGH EXPEDIA. DID I SAY FREE PARKING. How many times have we all stayed in a big city hotel and thought we were getting a deal only to find that we had to pay another $30 plus tips for parking. And this parking is fenced. King bed. Fine. A little hard. But fitted sheets! Small TV....

Omg!! I cannot believe that Wyndam Vacation Resorts had the audacity to give this hotel away for a FREE 3 day/2night stay!! I regret with every fiber in me that I didn't pay $99 for an upgrade to another hotel!!! Let me start by saying that when the airport shuttle dropped us off at the hotel, he had to ask,...
