It was fine
We went there for a pleasure/vacation to San Francisco. The hotel was fine, it wasn't very fancy but we didn't spend much time there. The only thing we would change is that it was not very near any real night life. Their in hotel restaurant was too expensive - we never even tried it.

Needs total Improvement
This hotel needs to be rebuilt from scratch. No pillows. Sheets are dirty. I travel, if not so often, at least once a month. This is the worst hotel I've been to.

Soon to be Demolished
Hotel used to be one of the better ones, but it is in serious decline. This hotel is only for budget travelers.

Not impressed. Do not recommend it to anyone.
On the second day or our stay at this hotel, my Rolex watch was stolen out of our room. I have made several phone calls to this hotel to try to resolve this issue and after a month, I still have not gotten a response back from this hotel. I do not recommend staying at this hotel to anyone.
