As our son was getting married in Alameda, we had a large group of people coming in from out of town. The combination of having a hotel van that will drive you within 3 miles, and also having some "lounging space" called "The Library," where we could hang out (they even gave us a tray of wine glasses!!) was PERFECT for our needs. I didn't want family to have to rent cars, and we wanted to use public transportation to go into SF, so we used the hotel van, and really only had to wait 25 minutes one time at the BART. Kayla and Dorothy at the front desk were so friendly and helpful with maps etc., and we owe a special thanks to Karla (there were 9 rooms full of us!!) for keeping the pancake machine (our nieces favorite :)) and eggs hot, and the breakfast area ready for us all. Russell and Carlos were our usual drivers, and Manuel was constantly working on fixing things, painting, etc......A BIG SHOUT OUT to JD Covarrubias because he runs a great operation!! If you want to stay at the Ritz, go ahead, but if you want clean, efficient, very friendly and really reasonable.....this is the place!
