After a long flight from London we were immediately greeted with a warm welcome from the check in staff. They congratulated us on our marriage & said that they'll be a bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room. The room was huge, modern & so comfortable with a great view of the cable car station. The hotel was very central a 5/10 minutes walk to pier 39. & Alcatraz. Breakfast in the hotel was reasonable & delicious too.
We cycled the golden gate bridge and used blazing saddles which was a few doors down from the hotel. Bicycle hire was $9 per hour. I would also recommend booking Alcatraz online prior to traveling as it tends to get booked up.. Again amazing!!
We did get a taxi from SFO to hotel including tip this cost $70 which we found out this was expensive. On the return I booked a shuttle online with super shuttle
I recommend that you book this prior to traveling to save money and it didn't take long either.
As a travel agent back in the UK I would definitely recommend this fabulous hotel they simply couldn't do enough for us.
