After seeing the corner suite on the 3rd floor, which we were told was surprisingly available, and the room we had reserved, which had an internal view, we were persuaded to upgrade to a suite for the bargain price of $244 per night. The views ot the city and water with the sunshine streaming in sold us and made it worth every penny. As previous reviews have mentioned, the breakfast is really great. The presentation is very elegant. Even though the photos make it look like the breakfast room is underground, it is at street level with an eastern view and lots of light. The evening wine reception is a wonderful amenity which unfortunately we were only able to enjoy our first night. SF is a great city for walking, and we spent most of our time away from the hotel. Take advantage of the written information that is available at the front desk suggesting things to do. We never happened upon the coffee room or the exercise room until the last day. The coffee room is the first room on the left when you enter the hotel; it is like a living room. The exercise room on the breakfast room level has several modern looking machines and even a stability ball. We loved this hotel. Our only slight displeasure, due to the location of the hotel, was not having easy access to public transportation and not providing parking for a rental car. On the weekend street parking is not a problem, but during the week it is more difficult. We did take advantage of the town car the day we left to take us to the downtown Bart station so we could take it to the airport. We feel we were able to enjoy a luxurious vacation at a very reasonable price, since at high season this suite is more like $459.
