    It is brilliant hotel, I loved its perfect rooms and delightful stuff. Very tasty food for dinner and breakfast. Panoramic bay views, more than clean room. A shopping mall and a market, everything you need is near the venue...

    Fantastic place for celebrating anniversary, recommended. The hotel is very clean and the room is big. Downtown San Francisco district certainly deserves to be visited. Liked that they had onsite restaurant Luce, no need to go somewhere else.

    The location and the room

    The bell desk was rude to my girlfriend. After the bell desk took my bags from my rental I was to drop the rental back. The bell desk didnt advise me to see the front desk before I left. Consequently, my girlfriend could not check in until I returned over an hour later. I also found the bell desk pushy and I became quite annoyed when they insisted on calling me a cab when I could have hailed one from the front.

    IT is a new building and has amazing views if you have a room on the upper floors. I also like the lap pool. The location is fine, not in the center of Union Square but close enough.

    Valet parking is really expensive.

    Good location, nice service and very good gym -

    Hotel service people made a mistake on the bills when we did check out - 1 person told us we have paid by 3rd party when we did check in, means no need to make payment. When we check out, the other people print the total of 3 days bills asked us to make payment again, it's really confused.
