    Yes they will valet park for you, we did this for the 3 nights we stayed. No issues at all. When you book directly with the hotel there is an option to add the cost of parking.

    Can confirm - no A/C. Mostly not a problem in SF, but it may also be useful to no that there are no screens, either.
