          We had one of the small rooms and it was perfect for what we needed. Sleeping and showering. The location of the hotel is perfect. Plenty of restaurants and bars in the area not to mention it is minutes away from BART and the trolley.

          We arrived around 12pm from Melbourne and were able to leave our bags (in a separate room) until our room was ready.Checkout was 11am. I found check ins in the US were either 3pm or 4pm everywhere we went!

          I'm not sure about the laundry facilities. as for a shared bathroom we had a jack and Jill bath but there was no one in the adjoining room. I'm guessing you can request your own bathroom but it'll cost extra
