Hotel can't handle large reservations

Stayed here on NYE and waited over an hour to check in (think massive, curling lines, practically out the door). To make matters worse, the line to get our car the following day was even longer (apparently they use a separate company for parking). Location is good if you want to be in Civic Center, but avoid this place during holidays/big events in that area!

Horrible

Save yourself some aggravation and please spend some more money to stay at a nicer place. Every set of bed sheets I saw had stains on them. Also - URINE LEAKED FROM THE TOILET IMMEDIATELY ABOVE MY ROOM INTO MY BATHROOM. It was a disgusting and traumatic experience. Seriously - you can do A LOT better. If you are still having doubts, get a sleeping bag and sleep in Golden Gate Park. At least there, you'll know whose urine is dripping on you.

The hotel is old and opulent, though this means that some of the facilities are a bit old fashioned (e.g., tiny bathroom, shower only, no tub). For me, the free wifi more than compensated. I dealt with the staff several times, and they were always helpful.
