Location, location, locationfrom ABGerber
The decor is very handsome and the bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in, period. The pool is not of resort caliber, but it is well tended, heated and my two boys were happy to splash about after a day in the city. HOWEVER, there is a huge difference in the rooms overlooking the alley as opposed to those by the pool. The noise from the alley kept me awake all night. They were able to offer me a different room for the second night of our stay and it made all the difference in the world. The rooms on the "pool side" are larger and very quiet at night.

Not bad...from North_Wales_Lass
Bad points: The tramps outside dampened the atmosphere, and we felt we couldn't go out at night. Insultingly small swimming pool. The restaurant was shut when we were there (was in 2001, sure it's all renovated now!) so had to eat at Lefty O'Tooles (like a canteen) and a HIDEOUS diner, was like the diner on 'No Batteries Included'. Is also quite a way from the Wharf and Alcatraz, especially with all them hills.
Would not go back to San Fran, not many things to do there!

Best bed on our tripfrom sandterrs
This was one of the best rooms we stayed in our our trip to America.
The room was very nice, recently redone. The bed was the best part of it. It was soooo comfortable my husband and I did not want to get out of it.
We found the staff at the reception desk very friendly and helpful. We were even upgraded to the Club Section.
This place is close to everything, especially the shops. There is a great restuarant across the road. I can not remember the name of it but if you walk out the front of the hotel and look to the across the road to the left it is on the corner.
Only con was the homeless people on the street, they scared me a few times but most of the time my husband was with me. I don't think it would matter where you stay in SF, you would still encounter this.
We had a great time but remember to bring your winter cloths. We were there mid July and it was COLD.
t be going back..from Ade_J
The negatives predominated however - starting with my online reservation of a king balcony room - I didn't get a king bed and I didn't get a balcony room either.
Their own website states "each room equipped with wireless internet access" - they aren't, so lugging a laptop six thousand miles did annoy me slightly as it was one of the deciding factors of my choice, almost as much as the next to useless webTV that is there. If this was a UK hotel I would be reporting them for fraud.
As has been stated in other reviews, if you're not in the club section the rooms are tiny even by SF standards (my party had rooms in both sections). The twin non-club rooms we saw were too small to even store two people's luggage - bear that in mind if your planning a stay of any length.
rThe air con in the club room was woefully inadequate - nothing but low speed - and what really irked me was that California was in the grip of a heatwave for the first few days of the visit and the hotel dealt with it by 'rationing' everyone's air conditioning by setting the minimum available temperature to 68 degrees from a central control - absolutely unbelievable!!
Housekeeping in the club room was sporadic with beds and coffee forgotten on some days, but fine in the other room - aside from a few years worth of grime on the windows that somewhat clouds the view!
All in all it was a place to sleep for a couple of weeks, but not one I will be returning to..

Top Local Tips for San Francisco
Dottie's True Blue Cafe Get there around 7:15-8am and you won't have to wait as long. You will wait 30 minutes-1 hour if you get there around 10am-noon as brunch is the thing to do in San Fran. Try the famous pancakes and any of their pastries-to die for!
Avoid Alcatraz I loved this city, and i saw every main attraction in 3 days. Very interesting places like Ocean beach, the park, Golden Gate, and the warf. But avoid Alcatraz, it was very dissapointing, nothing to do or see really, and too many restrictions on food and smokers, yet its a dump. For an Australian the sea food at the warf was a little dissapointing also. everything else was great. The seals at peir 39 were also very amusing.Lots of Aussie and kiwi trees too, they could almost have a colony of koalas in all the eucalyptus trees.
Alcatraz go on the earlybird trip its quiet, also dont buy a ticket on the web as they dont have the family ticket, can save about 14 dollars buying at the ticket office. Buy a 3 day ticket for the trams, its saves loads of money, also go to 6th floor at Macy's and take your passport, even bigger savings to be had.
