The staff and the decor are just wonderful. Freddy, the bellman greeted us warmly and was a great source of information and help to a couple of SF newbies. The desk manager was just as helpful. We had a corner king which was large, comfortable and very nicely decorated. While not on the trolley line, it didn't seem too far...

My wife and I stayed for one night. I found the room online and the rate was very reasonable for Mother's Day weekend. Check-in was smooth and the bell and desk staff were accommodating, polite, and informative. The room was clean with all of the appropriate amenities. The only negative is that the bathroom doors were not solid. They were...

Staff are all very helpful and friendly. And there is wonderful place just outside the door for shiatsu and reflexology - great after day of lots walking and shopping! Parking in the...
