    Our 11th floor room smelled like a sewer; the fragrances installed in the room and bath gave me a headache. Only stayed one night. Great location did not help. Meal at Scala tasty. Left as soon as we could. Avoid.

    Yes, Natter, I agree with others - ask to move to a quieter area. We were in a corner and didn't experience a lot of noise. So sorry! Definite tell the management - we want you to enjoy your stay in SF!
