I've stayed in many hotels in San Francisco and so far I think this is my favourite. At first I was a little leery of staying in the financial district but when I realized how close I was to everything (my preferred mode of transportation is walking), I was thrilled. It's easy to walk to the Ferry Building (Farmers' Market on Saturday), to Chinatown & North Beach and even to SOMA.
Our room was large and the king size bed was very comfortable with great pilllows and sheets. Two robes were provided (hotels that only provide one drive me nuts). There is nothing trendy about the decor but it's inobtrusive and very comfortable. The bathroom was very large with a separate and spacious shower and nice amenities. Maid service was sympathetic and inobtrusive. The concierge and front desk staff were very helpful, with the exception of one person (who helped lose the fifth star in this review). All in a all, a great stay and I can easily recommend this hotel.
Why did it lose a star?
The gentleman who checked us in was okay at first but when he found out where we were from, not that pleasant. I guess he didn't like a city in our country. Wow. That was WEIRD, dude! When we asked him for restaurant recommendations for lunch (we had just flown in and were tired) he just vaguely waved his arms and said "there are hundreds around here, take your pick". Unhelpful. However, subsequent front desk staff were lovely.
Low battery in our in-room safe.
Lodgenet was terrible quality.
I don't like paying for Wi-Fi. I find it cheap on the hotel's part.
Overall however, I like the hotel and I'll stay there again for sure.
