“best choice for san fran stay”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

couldn't fault this place. great location, on the embarcadero sea front, great views of the Bay bridge, opposite the ferry building, 5 min walk from the shops at Union Square.
Personally found this a much better option than staying in the overly touristy area of fisherman's wharf. If you need to go there, the tram takes about 5 mins and costs $2.
very comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast. Didn't try the restaurant in the evenings as there are so many choices available nearby.
will return to san fran soon hopefully, and will head straight back to this place

Dear wearethebryants:

We are delighted to hear that our location was favorable for all activities you enjoyed while visiting San Francisco, and that we could provide a comfortable, urban oasis after your endeavors. We are privileged to be near several muni stops – all, as you mentioned, for $2.00—that will take you virtually anywhere in the city. If for any reason your interests are not conducive with the muni system, our team members would be happy to assist you with accommodations during your next stay.

Thank you for your kind feedback. The next time you are in San Francisco, we look forward to hosting you again.

Warm Regards,

Melony Williams
General Manager

This is a boutique hotel that is very comfortable, & close to all parts of the San Francisco area. Walk across the street to the market & try all kinds of fresh fish & veggies, plus chocolates to die for.The view of the bridge & water from our room was relaxing.They have a great restaurant on site, & many more in walking distance. Stroll to the museums or take a taxi to Fisherman,s Wharf for sightseeing.Go on a tour of Alcatraz & see the sea lions.Book a ticket online before you go to avoid long lines & sell outs. We will definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the water, market, & bridge or you will be looking at a building.i...

As a visitor to San Fransisco I relied on the hotel staff and they did not dissapoint. Always helpful with arrangements. Stayed here because of the location and it was wonderful,near the ferry terminal but loved the yoga and all the other amenities offered.

We stayed at this hotel because it said it was pet friendly, and they are! They gave us a doggie package. which included a doggie bed, a toy, and doggie treats! They even give you your own doggie towel. For a pet friendly hotel, I would give this establishment a five star rating! If you want to stay at a beautiful San Francisco hotel I would definitely give this place a try. We loved it and would definitely be back.:)
