The street had many homeless people which made us uncomfortable. There was loud drilling going on in the lobby. The lobby was small with no place to sit to wait for members of our party or car service. The lighting was poor. The gym was a joke -three trea
Three treadmills for a hotel that size. No plug for phone by bed. Bathrooms dated.
Walking distance to many tourist attractions, bus stop outside, Wholefood Market within walking distance for fresh food supplies.
Very expensive for the facilities provided.
Building work drilling and hammering!
It was easy to check in and they cleaned everyday.
No fridge in the room at all. Placed a $1500 hold on my credit card and did not tell me that this would happen. Dismissed me when I questioned it and explained that it would be up to a week after we checked out that they would release the $1500. This figure is over and above the total coast of our booking.
I was worried about the location on the Market St. corridor, but it appears the city is cleaning up the area (a Whole Foods is coming soon in the next block over). Lobby was under construction and the music was a bit too loud, but nice bone structure and you could tell it will look good once completed. Hotel staff was fantastic. I needed medication refrigerated, so they sent a minifridge directly to my room at no additional cost.
I appreciated the upgrade to a King room rather than the Queen I booked; however, the room was right across from the ice/vending machine and closest room to the elevators and was quite noisy with guests coming/going at all hours. Not very good sound proofing.
