Other than the construction and the inconvenience of the parking, this place is a PERFECT place to stay. Despite the disruption, we were given a wonderful room on the top floor with a beautiful scenic view of the harbor. Our room was clean and comfortable, but at times we could hear the elevator which was adjacent to our room. Parking... More

The ad said this property was being "updated with a new, modern look with renovations." WRONG! The entire hotel is under major construction. The only entrance is through the parking garage. The main hallway out of the elevator is dangerous. The rain leaked everywhere, was still leaking as I walked to leave, and the ground was wet, muddy cement. Plastic... More

Great view of the harbor. Close to the maritime museum and the aircraft carrier the midway. There are a few good restaurants close by. You can go for a walk down to the Aircraft carrier Midway and back to the hotel and see several sailing ships.

“Top floor has partial view of the bay.”

“WE had a room on the second floor, there was some traffic noise, maybe a higher floor would be better. We were not kept awake unduly.”

“The upper floors have a better view of the harbor.”

“We chose bay view but with all the high rise buildings next time will probably pick just a city view which is cheaper”
  • Can I just say this is my favorite thing in their hotel room-every lamp had an outlet!
  • Large kingsize bed. The room had fridge, microwave, desk, storage. Was great.
