Disappointing - 2.0 out of 5

Brenda S S, Mendocino, CA Thu, 3 January 2013

Room was small but did have large walk-in closet. It appeared to be clean and the beds were comfortable. Extremely close to Bill Graham venue. Very annoyed at the long waits for the 2 of 4 small elevators that were in working order. Worst hotel shower ever - long wait for warm water and miniscule water pressure. No in-room coffee so had to trek downstairs to the crowded Starbucks every a.m. Ice machine had ice about 1/2 the time. No room service available at all. Electrical outlet needs replaced. Might have been better satisfied at half the price I paid which was around $750 for 3 nights + $45/night for parking. I'd probably opt for the Best Western next time there's a concert at that venue.

Liked: Room was clean; very close to Bill Graham venue. Friendly, cheerful maid service very helpful.
Disliked: 2 out of 4 small elevators operable; very little shower water pressure; no in-room coffee & no room service available; had to set a bag in front of electrical outlet to keep plug from falling out.

Liked: Nothing
Disliked: I did not like the fact that the hotel charged me even though I already had a prepaid reservation. I also did not like the fact that the front desk gave a complete stranger a key to my room.

Liked: Near city center, Lyft ease. At least Starbucks in lobby Brendan bellman helped w luggage delivered by airline
Disliked: Staff at desk rude and not helpful at checkout. No in hotel eating. Only Starbucks. Many drug addicts and homeless loitering outside was scary for my kids. They were approached by them.


Good - 3.55 out of 5
