"Nice hotel in an "almost good" location"
The hotel is very nice, we a had a flawless stay, with all the amenities expected for this category of hotel, good wifi (included in my rate but expensive otherwise), training center, comfortable beds. The view from the 17th floor was very nice. The only minor issue with the room was that the wardrobe doors that were banging. The main concern for us was the location. Although it is very close to the Convention Center and Union Square area and walking distance for the Powell St. train station connected to SFO, the area is not too friendly, especially in the area located South and West of the Hotel where it is not recommended to wander. Even the walk to the convention center, which is only one block away, although not unsafe, is not nice because there is not much going on around, you walk along a Western building of the convention center where there isn't seem to have a lot of business going on most of the time. I was ok during day time, but I would not feel safe to walk at night in that area.
Two of us recently stayed at this hotel and we could not fault anything at all. From check-in to check-out, everything was wonderful. Our rooms were spotlessly clean, the beds luxurious and there was a fantastic view from the large windows in our rooms. The Staff were so helpful and generous with their combined knowledge as we had several questions to ask while on our first visit to San Francisco. The hotel is just minutes walk away from the nearest BART services. The only downside...having to leave!
"Great luxury and downtown comfort"
What a nice guy who took our car for the valet parking! We felt welcome from the very first minute. The hotel has great luxury and nice views when you have room on the 16the floor or a higher. The restaurant is fine if you don't want to walk around the block to Market Street. The gym is difficult to use if you are not experienced. Even with help from the reception staff we did not manage to the machines working.
"All of the bases covered"
For a large impersonal convention type hotel I am pleasantly surprised to say I can find nothing to complain about. My room on the 23rd floor is a comfortable size has a well appointed bath with a great spa shower and the most powerful hotel dryer I have ever encountered. It is quiet, clean, well maintained and has great views of the bay. The gym is a decent size with enough cardio equipment to serve all of the early morning rush and access to a nice outdoor terrace. The restaurant Luce is acclaimed and while the hotel is situated at the edgier edge of SOMA its a great base for exploration of the Embarcadero and other key parts of the city. It may give my favorite Kimpton hotel a run for its money.
"Ideal convention hotel"
Moderately sized, great service, quiet, located very near the convention center. If one's attending a meeting there andcan stand the upscale rates, one couldn't ask for better. The concierges were especially knowledgeable and helpful, explaining bus routes and even mentioning special sculptures along the way.
