This hotel is reasonably priced for the SF area. It is located within 5 minute walk of Pier 39, one of the major tourist shopping areas where you can get a great view of Alcatraz and take a number of various open top bus tours or boat tours of the bay.
Also located a short walk from the hotel is a Safeway and Trader Joe's if you need to pick up any necessities.
The walk to Union Square is about 30-40 minutes one way (go up Columbia tobeiter Stocktorn or Grant for a walk thru China Town on your way there).
The hotel has free Wifi in the public areas, favorite place to check email wad at the heated bbq pits located just outside the lobby area, where you can have a drink too and catch up with work etc.
The rooms are clean and the property is nice. The gym is small but equipped with mostly cardio machines.
Parking is outrageous but so is the rest of the city's paid parking spots, try enjoying your stay on foot and spend that extra money on local attractions or one of the seafood restaurants on the Wharf.
Not a lot of homeless hanging around the hotel although there are quite a few pan handlers at the Wharf. In the touristy ars the homeless tend to be more amusing & friendly although exercise common sense at night around the hotel. Generally asafe area.
Will be back to stay at this property next time I'm in town!
