Location and staff.
Room was very noisy and bed/pillows were uncomfortable. Hotel was much older than I thought and bathroom felt like it.
dreadful old hotel smell of ancient aircon and foul cleaning products; poor gym; tatty furniture
Unable to check in because i booked thru a 3rd party website. My mother bought the room for me as i was visiting in town. Staff was very nonchalant. Unfortunately i never even got the opportunity to stay. So you guys charged my mother's card. And i never got the experience. I had really high hopes as all my local friends recommended you guys. The room was clearly booked for me but my mother took care of the transaction. And without her present, it seemed like it was so much hassle for your staff. Especially if the fare is covered. Leading me to stall in a city im not from until she lands. And just my luck, her transition was delayed. Essentially ruing my first experience in the bay area. Hope u can be empathetic to the whole ordeal. Hope not reaching. But if you can offer just 1 night i would be elated. Sorry jus had to vent
Everything was great especially the staff. We really enjoyed the wine and cheese happy hour every day.
the hotel is a excellent hotel. we stayed here because hotel is next to the ferry terminal that goes to fisherman wharf pier 1.
parking was 33.00 per day. the car was parked at another location. the area is bad. would not dare to walk out of the area.
