The hotel staff were great and the property is wonderful especially the rooftop terrace with cafe. The only things I had issue with were that the beds were very hard and they do not have duvets only thin blankets. I am a very cold person and my friend runs hot so I had to ask for like 4 blankets to sleep "comfortably". I also wish they had body wash and hand soap instead of just the tiny soap bars.

The staff at the hotel was engaging and friendly. They willingly gave advice on how to get around, places to eat, and places to shop. The property is a relic of the past and very well maintained and beautiful. My room was large with everything I needed in there - fridge, large desk, tv, and coffee machine. The area around the hotel is full of dining, drinking, and shopping options and PETCO Park was a 15-minute walk away. There are homeless and sketchy characters in the vicinity, but they were not a bother. I would DEFINITELY stay again.

I LOVED THE ROOM IT WAS SMALL BUT HAD HIGH CELINGS, BIG BATHROOM, WINDOW TO OPEN LET THAT FRESH OCEAN AIR IN MY ROOM. I CAN NOT SAY HOW COOL THE ROOF TOP SITTING AREA WAS. 5 TABLES AND CHAIRS WITH UMBRELLAS, OVERLOOKING THE BEAUTIFUL CITY, HARBOR BOATS SAILING PAST, AND THE FREE COFFEE AND EXPPRESSO WAS AMAZING. THE MANAGEMENT LET ME CHECK OUT RIGHT AFTER THE MARATHON, THAT WAS A HUGE BIG THANK YOU FROM ME.

the hotel is not as nice as what pictures show. Over all was ok but not good as it showed. System is old school, no parking, not enough staff. My most concern was the bed. Very uncomfortable. Mattress was very stiff and every move/turn, makes the bed bounce. So woke up multiple time at night with my partner. Don’t recommend at all. Its worth spending few more dollars to stay somewhere nicer. This wasn’t cheap either. So was expecting better hotel
