Hotel has a good location, nice sized rooms, well maintained, clean, free parking. The owners have obviously invested a lot in the hotel (considerating its location). So, why after all that, would you hire the worst desk clerks ever? Upon check in, the first clerk...More

Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San

Response from Lisa S | Reviewed this property |
Parking is free, but I'd say they only have about 15 spots. I got there early and it wasn't a problem, but it filled up fast. It's one of the last hotels in the Wharf area with free parking that I know of.
