I've stayed at this hotel many times for business and I have always been very happy with the hotel. The only problem I had is one time I was in a room next to the elevator and it was extremely loud. At 11pm I had to call the front desk and request to be moved to another room. They were wonderful and switched me to another room without any sort of hassle.
This trip there were some interesting issues with the temperature in the meeting rooms (too hot), but it was only one session on one day. The key at any downtown hotel is room location. I have been on both sides of the hotel and I love the view of the Tribune tower on the even numbered side of the hotel, but it can be loud (street noise). I strongly recommend getting on a high floor if you have an even numbered room. The odd numbered rooms face San Francisco (in the distance) and are much quieter. The only rooms I would AVOID are rooms ending in x17, x19, x20, x22.... (for example 317, 319, 320, 322 or 417, 419, 420, 422 etc.) these are the rooms near the elevator x20 and x22 are across front he elevator which is not terrible, but rooms x17 and x19 are backed-up to the elevator and it is REALLY hard to sleep in those rooms. Even after having a beer at Pacific Brewing Company I still could not sleep! I will NEVER stay in one of those rooms again!
The people who work at this hotel are awesome!
