For Traveller, you could easily access to Cable Car it’s on the right side of the hotel. This hotel is the highest building around that area. You could get a nice view if you get a high floor room.

This particular property is managed very well. The staff was kind and greeting us, especially since my group and I were very late. My room was exceptionally clean, and the bed was super comfortable. I could have laid in it all day. The view I had was very nice. And the location of this property is awesome. Regardless, if you want to do things walk to places, take a rideshare or get to certain conferences or business meetings.
