The doormen at the hotel in their costumes think it's smart to act smart with their guests. They're unhelpful, do not u load luggage from the cars unless asked and on the rude side.
Rooms are abominable - tiny like pigeon holes. The bathrooms are actually pigeon holes - the WC and washbasin share the same standing space.
The Airconditioners make the most God awful sound, their breakfast is highway robbery. All in all, the experience was so sub par, it ruined San Francisco for me.
It's a run down property. Don't stay there. Look opposite the street and stay in the Marriott or the Taj Campton. This is an expensive waste of time.
