"Great location and views of the bay..."
I stay at this hotel as much as I can when I stay in San Francisco. I highly recommend the corner round suites as you have a great view of the bay bridge and have a nice spa tub to enjoy the view from. I have stayed in the rooms with a huge party balcony but didn't feel very safe as random people can just walk onto your patio. The restaurant is a somewhat cool place to hang out at during happy hour and you are right across the street to the Ferry Building with all the great shops and restaurants.We also walked to a Giants baseball game from here so bring your walking shoes as San Francisco has a great walking-running path along the bay.
Cannot explain how amazing this trip was! The hotel stay was beyond amazing! Never experienced such great customer service like this. You guys go above and beyond what hospitality is. We were in town from Las Vegas and with us being in the hospitality business as well this definitely put you guys at my top of the list. Cedric did a top of the line job and got us a great room. Hank you so much Cedric. Also Alana and Greg made us feel so welcome and was very attentive to our needs. But to top it all off was Edward. At the end of our stay he picked up our luggage and let us keep it with him for about 5 hours till our flight left. Upon us returning from sightseeing for the day and came out with it and we try to grab the luggage and he said that he will take it to our car which was parked out on the street and said that you guys give the royal service from the time that we arrive to the time we check out all the way up to getting us to the car. That comment right there made my whole stay worth it. Edward is absolutely top notch! Thank you very much for the great hospitality and keep up the good work. We will definilty be returning 😃
"Crazy loud, poor customer service "
The people who built this hotel were apparently too cheap to invest in effective sound-blocking windows or sound-proofing between floors. Additionally, hotel management prioritizes its party space rental clients over hotel guests, so be prepared to have thumping music in your room if any one of the hotel's multiple terraces has a party going on. Our experience was that even if you were 2 floors away from the party, the music came through loud and clear. Street noise is another problem - even on the 5th floor (hotel only has 8 floors) the street noise from the Embarcadero was quite loud. Be prepared for 24/7 cars and trucks, engines roaring, honking and sirens. When we alerted the hotel to the excessively loud noise their response was "it's a party, it should finish by 10:30...at least it's not midnight!" This was on a Sunday night. The manager I spoke with literally refused to require that the party goers turn down their music at all / manage the party in a way that it didn't infringe on hotel guests' enjoyment of their rooms. L Service in the Americano was slow and the food was passable but not good. For what this hotel charges, you can find a much nicer experience in SF.
"Great Hotel with great service!"
We have stayed at this property twice, and every time it has been perfect. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great hotel in a great location. The restaurant quality of food was excellent as was the service. Highly recommend trying the Old Fashion dessert, was delicious!
"Nice location, but cramped"
Couldn't beat being right on the Embarcadero and steps to the pier and the Ferry Building. Made it convenient to walk to lots of attractions. Nice hotel, but room was cramped and bed too soft for my liking.
