Food was outstanding. We ate both breakfast and dinner here at the buffet. Both were very very good with tremendous selection. Lobby area is beautiful. They have a pianist who plays in the bar during happy hour. He is amazing, especially considering that he is blind. Apparently he has been playing here for years.
The room was fine but nothing to write home about. ...not new, no safe in room, wifi was $9 for 2 hrs.
Location is excellent. Wharf area is about 2 blocks away and a very easy walk. Lots of stores and restaurants within a 3 block area. The cable car entrance is just steps away.
All employees were quite pleasant. Nice place to stay.
