Feel like Kings!
The hotel is right beside Union Square and is in the thick of action in SFO. The look feel and aesthetics of this property will make you feel like kings. The staff is friendly and are always ready to help. We booked one room for three people but were denied availability during check-in. Thankfully after 2230 minutes of delay and scare, we were able to have a roll away bad. It would be good on the part of Hotels.com to make sure the promised rooms are made available immediately.

Fantastic hotel
We had an absolutely amazing time! The hotel was gorgeous. My only complaint is the valet. The valet desk was vacant when I was checking out and ready for my car. They were unapologetic about the situation despite the $60 parking charge.

Great choice! Great location!
We are very happy with our decision to stay here for a girls, weekend getaway! The hotel is as pictured with a great staff, and who can beat a daily complimentary wine hour?? The Starlight lounge was also very cool and convenient for ending the night. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit :)
