In town for SF Pride weekend. Great home base for festivities and discovering the city, during first time visit.
Service was great, check in was swift and reception made me feel like they were awaiting my arrival. There was an instant feeling of warmth and calm upon entry into hotel from the busting downtown city streets. Plus we got to instantly greet Max the Hotel mascot Pug! Too cute!
Common areas and hotel room were impeccably clean and very well maintained, making for an extremely comfortable stay. Rooms were nicely lit and had some modern touches without loosing comfort and charm. Our 3rd floor King Executive was a bit smaller than our Texas standards we are used to, but comfortable with sofa to relax on, and armoire for ample luggage storage.
Hotel was easy to find, easily accessible to all modes of transportation. Muni and Bart subway station is only a few blocks down. Grabbed a taxi near hotel entry, and made it to fisherman's wharf in minutes. Had reliable and good eats at Lori's Diner just down the block, and Sotano Grill, just up the hill on Powell St, both minutes walk from hotel. All the shopping you could want just over a block and half away at Union Square.
Would highly recommend to friends and family.
