                      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.

                      Close to my daughter's home. Walking distance to emabarkadero and city shoppig.

                      Bar cost very high even for San Francisco!

                      we had 2 spa treatments and would highly recommend the spa to our friends.

                      no daily newspaper, street noise was excessive.

                      The proxility to Union Square shopping.

                      The expensive parking, and the dinner menu was not versatile. We did not find anything appealing, and left.

                      Modern hotel (fairly new), clean and professional staff.

                      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.

                      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!

                      Some modern features (like a button for regulation of thr room access (do not disturb, make up etc.)), the lobby restaurant

                      Hotel tried to charge amounts without explanation,the ceiling is pretty low, my room didn't have panoramic windows etc.
