I will say that this place is great for a single person, needing to be close to the downtown/restaurant/shops area and maybe only staying 1-2 nights. As a family with little kids, I felt a little unsafe. I also realize that there were a lot of protests recently that make the city look very different than our previous visits. That said, the room seemed clean enough. Everything was slightly askew (nightstand far out from wall, tv strangely tilted, the bed foundations rocked/tilted) and the bathroom is very claustrophobic with a lower ceiling. The view is very pretty towards the bay. I tried to cancel my reservations after arriving on site because of my concerns but after that was declined, it all turned out to be okay in the end. I think it's just better for singletons.

Property was really run down. The interior had a weird smell and only one elevator worked. It seemed like there was some homeless people living in the hotel. We stayed for 4 nights and every night was some crazy person screaming about something.
