Great for girl's weekend”

Lots of local bars and restaurants all within a block behind the hotel! Clean and safe area, didn't notice any homeless in the block surrounding the hotel. $40 self park or free street parking from 6pm-9am worked out very nicely for us! We had a car, but were out all day and went to left before we needed to feed the meter. Stayed 2 nights with 3 girls in a king room. Rooms were very spacious by San Francisco standards, even enough space for a rollaway! Only complaint was that the bathroom had no fan or ventilation so it made it hard for the next person to get ready after someone showered!

Value for money and good location!”

For San Francisco price, this hotel is value for money for me. Late checkout fee was not too pricey too! The location was good too as hop on hop off buses picks tourists here in the morning. Room and hotel was clean and well maintained. Quiet also for a good night sleep since we are on a high floor, and view was great too. Walking distance to the city center too. Will highly consider staying again in my next visit to SFO.

Excellent”

The staff is incredibly friendly! The rooms are decent, your basic hotel room. Parking is $40 plus tax overnight, but apparently you have to pay to park anywhere in San Francisco! The pool is heated, and goes from 3.5 feet to a whopping 8 feet deep! I really appreciate that they have a line of blue tiles to indicate where it starts getting deep (super helpful for my 4 year old who’s just learning to swim!). There is NO free breakfast, but you can get the breakfast buffet for $17. A lady at the front desk said kids under 12 eat free, but we opted to walk to a local place for breakfast, then use some gift cards at the Starbucks a block away. We will definitely stay here again!
