In early January we stayed at the Lodge. The location can't be beat as you can walk to just about everything. The staff are helpful and courteous. Parking is non-existent. You drive up and they valet park your car for $14/day + tip. If you leave anything in your car you would want later...too bad. But, they are very prompt in getting your car when asked and are very nice.
The building is older and I like that. We had a room with two queens and a sofa bed. It was a long room with windows facing East Bay. The wooden floors are beautiful and squeak nicely, the little area for coffee was nice with a small refrigerator, the furniture is getting warn and not very comfortable and the lighting was really pitiful. Why do they put such low wattage bulbs in hotels? Another minus was the tiny flat screen mounted on the wall near the two beds. You had to sit on the beds to watch anything and it wasn't convenient at all. We had a gas fireplace which was appreciated this time of year.
The area outside - the courtyard - would be great in the warmer months and I would return to this property again, given the chance. Building old and furnishings too but there is enough here to make it all work out nicely, even if not perfect.
