I was staying on business, so the room was prepaid. When I checked in and provided a cc for incidentals, I asked and they advised the cc would NOT be charged.
3 days into my 5 day stay, they charged my cc the full room rate stay which was over $1300!
I went to the front desk and the night clerk took down my information. When I went down in the morning to check again, they were unaware of the situation. But said her manager would be in at 9:30. Daniel didn't arrive tell after 11am. The front desk lady Marisa sent the info to the accounting dept to get it straightened out. They only refunded $908 that day.
The other $400 was refunded the day we checked out.
Very inconvenient. If you don't want you money taken from you, check your bank statement when you stay here.
The rooms were bigger than the Sir Drake.
One bock up Geary and you are in The hood.
If your in San Francisco, you should spend the extra dime for the Westin or Marriott or some place closer to Union Square.
