All the staff was super nice. We had three rooms and they were really clean. I am sorry we left a lot of mess in one of them.

This hotel was in a perfect location to walk to Fisherman's Wharf (about 20 minutes) however the route 30 bus is also close by. The rooms are clean and comfortable, there is some noise so if you are a light sleeper I would ask for a room towards the back of the hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful...

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
