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.

Second time here and there...

Liked: Rolando and Asal were amazingly helpful in getting us a room and checking us in (after another hotel lost our reservation for the 5 rooms). I'd like to say a huge THANK YOU to them on behalf of my entire team. All of the staff were always smiling and friendly and happy to help with our enquiries or give us relevant information. This is the second time I've stayed here and I will definitely stay again. It's great to stay at a hotel and you feel welcomed every time you walk through the doors.
Disliked: My only fault is the strength of the wifi in my room. It kept dropping off, which made connecting to my office VPN not so strong. It's not ideal when you are on a business trip - but I was able to sit downstairs and get better network.

Best option for what we...

Liked: I liked the view from our room; the space of our room (with a walk in closet), and the bathtub/shower. I loved the location next to the public transport, with dining options near by. And I loved the starbucks in the lobby.
Disliked: I didn't see a proper dresser for me to put my clothes in, but with the walk in closet, it was OK.
