We visited San Francisco for the weekend and did not want to pay the high price for a hotel in San Fran. This was a very nice option. The hotel is clean and well-appointed. The BART station is right across the street and it is only about a 20 minute train ride to the city.The hotel served free wine, lemonade...

I stayed here for a convention downstairs (Oakland Convention Center). I loved it. Easily accessible from airports via BART, lots of restaurants in the area. The room was comfortable, clean, and stocked with everything I needed (internet for a $10/day fee, bathtub, hair dryer, TV w/ HBO, coffee).

We stayed in this Marriott because of the proximity to downtown San Francisco. The hotel was about a block away from a large B.A.R.T. subway stop, so it was easy to get to and from San Francisco for pretty cheap. The hotel was a nice, we were only there for a night but everything was pleasant. The view from the...

The hotel location was my biggest concern for safety and it was actually in a good location within walking distance to restaurants and Starbucks! That said, you still want to keep your eyes open and be aware of your surroundings - it is still a big city. The hotel itself was nicely appointed. But, I had to book to additional...

This is a nice hotel for such a big one. Clean and comfortable, though the rooms could use some renovation. One odd thing: no place in the hotel can you get an espresso or cappuccino. They send you down the block to Starbuck's. Wifi was expensive, so we didn't use it

I'm a business traveler and stay on a bi-weekly basis in SF. Some weeks, the city is simply impossible due to price per night. I stayed many times at this hotel and commuted back to Financial District. The hotel is across the street from BART and it's a breeze to get to town; super convenient at a reasonable price. Hotel...
