    I know this is a stretch to ask. Three of my friends and I are planning a trip to stay in San Francisco for about 5 nights I believe at your Hotel. Two of us are paying for the room we will stay in. My question is if it's possible to pay the fee for the room little by little? Instead of all at once sense it is only just two of us. It's just if possible I'd like to have the room paid off before we get there. Your answer would be greatly appreciated! Or if there is an alternative solution to my problem id like to hear that as well. Thank you for taking your time to read this.

    We paid up front too. Sorry, I can't answer either. Perhaps contact the hotel direct.

    We are a family of 5 from Singapore. Please advise if it's possible to add extra bed in your superior room with 2 double beds. How frequent is your shuttle bus to tourist destinations and what time does it end? Is parking available? At a cost or is it free? Look forward to your early reply.
