Quiet, comfort and terrific staff and location
Posted Oct 17, 2016
I attended a conference at this hotel in October. From my late arrival to my crack of dawn checkout I could not have been treated better. Every staff member is efficient, warm, friendly and ready to make my day easier. The room was spacious and spotless. The bed was just the right level of firmness with fluffy pillows. Everything I needed was there. I especially appreciated the cleanliness of the bathroom with no hidden mold or mildew. I had a room overlooking a quieter street and I recommend you ask for this since SF is a noisy city. Check in and check out were flawless. I needed a cab to the airport very early and the front desk knew exactly what time the cabs line up outside. The restaurant serves an excellent buffet breakfast starting at 0630 daily which is important for business clients.
The Anzu restaurant has a nice quiet bar and very nice and efficient staff. I ate there frequently but have to say the menu was more exciting than the food turned out to be. Portions are small, which is fine, but when I order a duck confit appetizer I expect more than a tablespoon of duck. The fois gras torchon was likewise miniscule. The ahi tuna tartar appetizer is not good at all - mooshed ahi spread thinly over flavorless mashed potatoes - recommend they just take that off the menu entirely. On the upside, the express lunch is quick, efficient and tasty. Several choices and very reasonably priced.
Special shout out to Romeo who checked me in.
