I stayed here for two nights with my family over last September. We chose this location because it was only two blocks from my firm's San Francisco office in the Embarcadero Center, which allowed me to spend a few hours getting in some work in the morning while they slept in. However, we would stay here again even with no business obligations. Upon arrival, the desk clerk offered to upgrade us from a no-view suite to a spacious Bay-view suite on the top floor. My son was particularly excited when he discovered that this also included a bird's eye of the electric trolley line. My wife and I loved being so close to the ferry building and the surrounding market -- lots of things to see without feeling quite as touristy as Ghiradelli Square or Fisherman's Wharf. The only negative is that it is REALLY difficult to get a cab right outside the hotel. The staff are really helpful in this regard, but it is easier to walk a couple of blocks down to Market Street.
