Location, friendly and helpful staff, parking.
Excellent location for piers and boat to Alcatraz. There are 2 supermarkets, a subway and starbucks all very close. A tram stop is also close.
Everything was fine
A very good location for proximity to either Downtown or Fisherman's. Very good staff, both pleasant and accommodating to requests. A good sized room, good bathroom and excellent toiletries and comfortable bed.
I was very disappointed that there was no fridge as trips to the ice machine to keep water, drinks and milk for coffee cold were very frustrating. Also lovely Wolfgang Puck coffee sachets in a tiny $5 coffee maker!
It was close to the wharf and had good parking. The beds were very comfortable.
It was so loud. We could hear the people above is walking around. Also we could hear everything happening outside on the street and conversations. It would have been nice to have a fan to drown out the sound. We will never stay there again!
Excellent location. Room was spotless. Staff very efficient and friendly.
