Excellent location. Lots of things to do in the area. We parked the car & walked everywhere. Rented electric bikes and it was a blast! Comfy room & bed. We will definitely be back. Nice getaway.

Booked room with (2) queen beds. Was given room in a very undesirable location. Room was on 3rd floor and directly above the brewpub. The restaurant had outdoor seating and the area was full. Noise level from the room was extremely loud until 10:00 PM close! This is a "business hotel" that connects to the convention center. Strange that there were meeting rooms and monitors with schedule of events on the same floors as the sleeping rooms.

We had a great stay. We only stayed 1 night. We were very close to the free trolley stop and to Fishermans Wharf. Check in and check out were easy.

Breakfast was included, but service was lacking. Many staff members but they stood around talking. Had to ask for coffee, drink refills. Had to ask three times for pancakes included on the buffet menu. Noticed some customers got better service than others. Noticed other people had to ask for the same things we had to ask for. Had more than enough staff, just didn’t provide the service.
