Our family of four arrived by car. The valet was friendly and efficient. Check-in was quick and easy. Mostly friendly service, but seemed rushed to check us in, even though no line behind us.
Overall an up to date room, clean, spacious, flat screen tv, mini-fridge, wi-fi. Added bonus: children staying in the hotel can request a fishbowl w a goldfish, for duration of the stay, to keep in the room. It was a nice touch for our kids.
Bathroom was large, however only complaint is no counter top space in bathroom. It is a pedestal sink, w a small square shelf next to it, which includes towels. Since there were 2 adults and 2 kids in our room, this tiny 18"x18" shelf did not accommodate even 2 of our 4 standard sized toiletry bags.
Disappointing: Day before our departure, we booked car service to the airport w/Max, the concierge. He assured us the car had been ordered and would arrive the next day. Fast forward to the next day, and our car never arrived. Turns out Max delegated booking our airport car, to a new employee, who did not follow through. We approached the valet and front desk, and they began making calls for cabs- for a 4 person can. Finally at the 11th hour a Prius shows up for 2 adults and 2 children w 4 suitcases. We squeezed in and the cab driver zigged and zagged to the airport, and we just made it. We were furious to have been put in this position b/c of Max (concierge) and his employee, but Frederick, the front desk manager did finally get us a car at the very last second, and paid for the fare.
Hotel itself is on Fisherman's Wharf, and is around the corner from Ghirardelli Square. If you are seeking to be in the middle of the hustle and hustle of FW, this is a great hotel.
