Neighbourhood
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.

The night desk clerks were delightful and the morning ones were just as nice. The staff made us feel welcome more than we expected from a big chain hotel. The room was immaculate and quiet, despite being right on Lombard Street. The free parking was awesome and they even let

newly remodeled room, clean bathroom, a bit noisy from other rooms, very basic breakfast, parking on first come first serve basis, excellent location, a good choice for exploring the city for a couple of days, ideally without the need to move your car

If your parking is full...is there a lot nearby to use, and if yes, do you know the cost?
As you may have seen our lot is about 15 spaces.. and it is first come first serve, there are a few places to park near us, but specifically there is a public parking a block over its about $15 for entire night it closes at 12 and opens around 7. However AFTER 6 you can park on the street til 9 am in morning for free and the front desk can help you with that when you check in. Thanks for the question!

"Go for the first floor; no lifts so you've got to lift cases up stairs."
"no elevator so plan on climbing - parking is tight access - so be careful"
"choose rooms as far from the front as possible to hope for quiet."
"Small parking lot. If you get a space leave your car and walk or take Uber/Lyft"
"Go to another hotel"
