I loved this timeshare city resort. Mind you, I am not a big lover of visiting big cities with all the noise, traffic and congestion, but I am a sucker for deals! When you check in, you are referred to the concierge desk for help planning your vacation stay. Here we met an absolute gem of an employee, Elle. We know timeshare "updates"(aka presentations) well where there are timeshare sellers, whose business is to get you to buy into some form of timeshare program. Elle said it would be only 60 minutes, but it ended up being 80 minutes when we had to "end" our meeting. It would have gone on for hours if you allow it. For our 80 minutes, we received 2 $69 Bay Passes for free, which we thoroughly appreciated. Elle picked up that we were interested in the passes when we first met her. While timeshare updates are kind of pushy sometimes, just remember that they cannot make you buy a timeshare. If you agree to a set period of time, hold them to it if you are not interested in buying their programs. We also got a light breakfast with the update, yogurt and OJ for me and a ham, cheese & egg breakfast sandwich for the wife. Elle was invaluable with info how to get to the AT&T Giants game and provided several discount cards to nearby restaurants. Now parking, the going rates for off street parking is $25-50 per day at various nearby lots/hotels. The Wyndham Canterbury valet parking is over $34/day. I went for the valet service as we got a heck of a good deal via RCI for the week @$189. One of the perks of getting into a timeshare program, which RCI and Wyndham each have there own programs, which are confusing and frustrating for person new to the timeshare world. Our 1 bedroom/1bathroom unit was Very clean and had a microwave, small refrig,sink,blender, toaster. While we were half way back from the street, Tuesday 4am trash truck was heard as was loud accelerating motorcycles. Turning on the a/c helped some as we sleep a bit better when it's cool anyway and the operation seemed to drown out the outside noise. Probably ear plugs any where in SF would be wise if you don't do well with city noise. There is 7-11 and a Wallgreens 2-3 blocks away as was a couple of mom n pop grocery stores.we brought some bread, jam, cookies, chips, popcorn etc with us from home for most breakfasts and snacks. The Wallgreens drug store also had some fruit and stocked a few food items, but heck this is SF and the restaurants are wonderful. I saw a Jack in the Box restaurant in the area for some fast food. Being that I am not a big fan of staying in big cities, I would not buy into this timeshare, but would visit again in a few years happily!
