My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this location. Everything for us was flawless. We had a clean room and all staff members were very accommodating. Grant it, it's not a five star hotel but very conveniently located to many venues we wanted to experience. The restaurant offers a pretty tasty breakfast. The happy hour menu isn't bad either....

I decided to stay at this hotel as I was working nearby, but the location is unbeatable for any tourist. The hotel is close to Fishermans Wharf, where all other hotels (Marriot, Sheraton, Hilton) are located. The hotel was renovated on the outside, but rooms are still a little outdated. My room was very spacious, close to the business center... More

Good sized room and facilities though expensive. Most staff were grumpy though as were many others in the service sector on the wharf. For instance, housekeeping were not happy that we didnt go out early enough to fit their schedule for room cleaning. Acted like it was a b&b! Good location.
