I mainly chose this hotel for its price, I would have preferred to be nearer Fisherman's Wharf. However having now stayed there I realize how lucky we were to have chosen this hotel rather than one in a more commercial location. We were able to get a bus ($2 per person) from the Embarcadero (15 stops) which took 20 minutes to Van Ness Avenue then walk the short distance to the hotel. If you book tours there is a complimentary pick up and drop off so again the location was not a disadvantage. The welcome was friendly and efficient. Our room was a pleasant surprise after our New York hotel, large and modern with two Queen size beds and a fridge. Free wi-fi. The view wasn't great but nothing to complain about, we were on the 14th floor so it was quiet. We didn't eat at the hotel as Polk Avenue is one block down and we discovered plenty of reasonable restaurants and supermarkets/food shops. There is a pool and gym but we didn't have time to use either. I have already recommended this hotel to both family and friends, and would stay there again.
