    Noisy ground floor room and unsatisfactory customer service

    I would not stay at this hotel again. Having been travelling in the US for 14 days, stopping at various places, this was by far the worst night’s sleep I had. We were put in a ground floor room right by where the cars drive in and there was constant vehicle and other noise. My partner got quite tearful at one point because of how little sleep she managed to get and overall it was an awful experience. When this was mentioned on check-out, there was no attempt to provide compensation or another remedy - merely a vague comment that we should have asked to change rooms. As this was the middle of the night that would not have been a viable solution and frankly I found the handling by the front desk to be very poor. Fortunately we’ve moved on to a much nicer hotel but I wouldn’t come back to this one and would caution against staying here (particularly on the ground floor).

    Top Notch Hotel

    Phenomenal front desk staff and very clean rooms. From check in to check out I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here in San Francisco. I frequently travel to this area for work and won’t hesitate to stay here again.

    Great Hotel & Great Location

    Room was beautiful, roomy and clean. Concierge was great for pre-booking a taxi for me to the airport the next morning. Bar service was not so good as I waited about 20 minutes to be served. The bar tender did not seem to observe who was waiting the longest. In the evening, I would recommend putting 2 bar tenders on so both sides of the bar are covered.

    Room was comfortable and serviced daily.

    The Reception staff were exceptional. Mislaid a backpack and the staff did everything in tracking the taxi I left it in and the return of the lost item. Particular thanks to Maggie,Corinne & cctv lady.

    Perfect stay in San Fran

    During my travels across the US, my partner and I stayed in this hotel during our time in San Fran. Check in was easy, we had assistance carrying ours luggage to our room which was great! Our room was a great size and it was spotless! The location of the hotel is great and it was a good base for us to see all the sights of San Francisco! I would definately recommend!
