Great location & character
Posted Aug 16, 2015
This was the perfect location for us. Only 30 minutes from the airport and right in downtown on 1st Avenue, a short walk from Pike Market and Pier 66 where we picked up our cruise the next day. Blink and you will miss the entrance, which goes upstairs. There is no elevator, but the front desk clerks immediately handled our bags both up and down. They were pleasantly friendly too. The place has a unique character about it everywhere within, including in our room. I guess since we reserved our room early (via Expedia), we got the biggest room in the hotel. Our room had very high ceilings, a spacious bathroom, a personal deck, and boutique furniture & fixtures throughout. Everything worked fine and it was clean. My only gripe was the breakfast; it was minimal in variety, low in quality, and served by inhospitable Hispanic folks. I guess you get what you pay for (nothing). Instead, how about offering a coupon to eat at a place down the block? Overall, it's a neat place.
