New, modern hotel on the Embarcadero, in front of the Ferry building. I got a corner room, beautifully decorated, comfortable and spacious. The bathroom was huge, with an awesome bathtub (that was like a swimming pool) and a separated shower. Every afternoon they leave you chocolates, the weather forecast for tomorrow and a piece of paper with nice quotes! Great detail. Also, if you agree, they leave you the San Francisco Chronicle every morning, hanging from your door nob in a nice little bag.
The staff was amazing, especially Monique, the concierge, very helpful.
Breakfast was delicious (only menu, no buffet) and even though I didn't have dinner or drinks at the restaurant, it was always full of people and seemed like they were having a good time.
Location was amazing, at the beginning of Mission St, right next to Market St and the ferry building. Bus 14 and Cable car F stops on the same corner of the hotel, MUNI station a block away, and a 10 minute walk to Union Square. The neighborhood is clean, with beautiful views of the Bay Bridge, has a good nightlife atmosphere and many places to eat and drink since it's very close to offices.
I know it might be a little more expensive than other hotels I considered booking in SF, but for me, it was worth every penny. I recommend it without hesitating.
Ps: finally took some photos of the room!
