Hotel is in a good location with with transportation options all around. The location is very centralized and not far from many attractions. The room was a little worn but overall it was nice.

The end of the California Cable Car line is just around the corner from the hotel so you'll always get a seat. Very well organised self-parking system within the hotel building. Nearby shops include Whole Foods with a good deli.

Our overall hotel stay was less than expected. One lady working the front desk one night was super rude when we asked for a few extra towels so we could shower. Was taking a shower and all the sudden was cold and couldn’t get it to warm up so gave up. Took forever for the water to get warm some days eventually gave up and just felt with it. Someone broke into someone’s suburban when we were there one night. Made us feel super unsafe after that knowing that anyone and everyone can just walk in and use the parking garage to park. A parking garage with so much security shouldn’t be getting broken into like that. Anyone can just walk through the front door and get on the elevators and go down into the parking garage especially at night time or when security isn’t paying attention or on their phone. Very disappointed the toilet made a weird noise after flushing and sometimes wouldn’t flush. It would take a few times before it would actually flush. Luckily we didn’t spend much time in our hotel room so only noticed it a few times. On a plus side they did let us check in 2 hours early. Our flight was early and we were actually looking to check in 4 hours early, but the manager told us to come back around 1 and he would check us in.
