The city was crowded in the period and I have stayed there due to lack of better options. If there is availability in another hotel of...

I am sorry you are upset about your inability to cancel your pre-purchased reservation. The terms you agreed to when you purchased the room were that it was a non-cancelable and non-changeable reservation. This rate program is the most discounted program, which is why it has the strictest terms. When you first called to cancel and claimed you weren't told...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
