First time visitors to San Francisco, decided to stay at the hotel based on good reviews and photos from photos from the hotel site deemed impressing but I guess after the covid outbreak, the really is somewhat different from the photos, the room I booked wasnt the one shown on picture, no deal breaker but the room itself had microwave which we had to go one floor down, no bottle waters available for guests compared to other hotel brands and tv cable sometimes had in picture freeze, no breakfast buffet I guess because of covid regulations. Overall it was ok, hopefully after this whole pandemic is over things might go back to normal.
