The location (on the water with a fire pit on an upper view deck) , the wine and cheese happy hour,lobby coffee, the delivered breakfast tray, the bicycles, the newspaper, the nearness to ferry and restaurants, shops and movie theater, close paid parking, wifi make this a great stay. We had a quiet room, but without a frig.

What a wonderful experience!! From the moment I entered the front door until I checked out I had a smile on my face. The staff could not have been more sweet and accommodating. From the complimentary breakfast in your room or on the waterfront deck to the wine and appetizers during happy hour the experience made our time there exceptional!!

We stayed here last week on our last night in California. Hotel room was modern and comfortable, spacious bathroom. View from deck over San Francisco Bay was gorgeous! Staff was professional and customer focused. We got to enjoy the fruit market on Thursday night, had dinner at Guaymas and it was delicious.

Decided to stay out of the city on a recent trip to San Francisco . This hotel was a boat ride across the bay passing Alcatraz on the way . Wonderful atmosphere , very clean and friendly staff. Despite being right in the middle of town it was very peaceful
