Comfortable business trip

Located in the heart of downtown San Francisco. It was especially nice being there during the holiday season (Thanksgiving) since the whole area was really lively. The hotel was nice and comfortable but because it's so large, it didn't really have a very personal touch to it.

Great central location

Great location for downtown. Lovely restaurant but expensive. For such a fee one would expect a pool , jazucci or more such leisure facilities.

I found this hotel to be a little

I found this hotel to be a little dated, but location is great for getting around town with the trolley car stop right outside the hotel and close to shopping and some great places to eat

You cannot do better for yourself

You cannot do better for yourself in all of the important aspects of a stay in San Francisco. Cannot be better. We stayed 4 nights and it was as best as it can get.

Located in union square, many

Located in union square, many high-end fashion stores and restaurants in close proximity. 40 minute walk to fishermans wharf. Our room was on 30th level, had beautiful views of golden gate bride and the bay. Highly recommend.
