    great for business which is what i went for

    simple place for business. very clean, beautiful view of the city and part of the bay. staff was helpful. good for late checkins, as checkin is 3pm, so make sure to call or check in prior to arrival.

    pool was closed for renovations, but that really isn't a complaint since they will be upgrading it which is great. maybe breakfast was kind of expensive, i payed $19 for the buffet when it was just me. so kind of high, $15 would have been more reasonable given the limited choice in food.

    Front desk was extremely helpful. I needed to cancel my reservation to relocate closer to the hospital where my family member was undergoing surgery for a brain tumor. However, I had booked the room through Expedia. The manager assured me that the hotel would not charge a cancellation fee, given that Expedia advertises no cancellation fees except as subject to the hotel. He was willing to be put on the phone with Expedia to explain the waiver. While on the phone with Expedia, I was put on hold for 30 minutes, then reprimanded by the Expedia representative that I would be charged a cancellation fee of the first night's stay. She refused to let me speak to the manager, and also refused to speak to the hotel manager who had happily obliged to discuss the matter with her. I was continually placed on hold, only to have her come back to the phone to reprimand me. I am grateful to the hotel manager for his hospitality which was in stark contrast to my telephone encounter with Expedia.

    Expedia and the false advertising of no cancellation fees, as well as the rude telephone spokesperson.

    Very Solid Hotel

    Very good value. Nice looking and simple hotel for a very reasonable rate. Just what I was looking for. Nice breakfast and good views. Took my wife and baby with me on a business conference trip. Room worked well for the baby with enough space for the crib provided unlike other hotels I saw. Overall very solid hotel.

    Location was not the best but I knew that going in. Some of the surrounding streets were a little sketchy at night. Not a big deal for me but maybe for some others. Parking pricey at $45 a night but all hotels in SF are about this expensive.
