    Fabulous

    The room was new, clean, and well-appointed.....especially the bathroom. The floor to ceiling windows were a nice touch....allowing plenty of light into the room and affording a good view of the city. Flat screen tv was also of good quality. One of the reasons I chose this hotel was the spa services available in the same building. The concierge was very friendly and helpful.

    The room was a bit on the small side....although the large floor-to-ceiling window helped to make the space seem bigger. Some of the staff (e.g. restaurant hostess/bellhops) were not very helpful and seemed ill-informed about hotel policy (e.g. regarding parking validation). They were dismissive of one's questions. The spa was nice but the spa reception area was too bare-boned and simplistic. Would've expected a more upscale design.

    Very good

    Large rooms, comfortable beds, spotless and modern bathrooms. Comfortable bar area.

    Parking was very expensive. Some of the staff were lovely, but others almost ruined our stay through constant daily demands to see our passports and being unclear about the policies of the hotel. This was unfortunate, as the hotel itself was excellent.

    Requested a king bed but received 2 doubles; restaurant overpriced and limited menu, outrageous parking fees

    No problems.

    Very expensive internet! 10 usd for 20 minutes. Most hotels offer internet for free. This is the reason I will choose a different hotel if I ever go back to SF.

    Superb

    Location in the city center, within walking distance of shops, restaurants and public transport. (Cable car, bus, train) On arrival we got an upgrade and had a wonderful room on the 29th floor, overlooking the city.

    In a hotel of this price range free wifi should be included!
