We stayed here for nye and wanted to see the fireworks and sunrise for the ny in SF. The hotel was walking distance to the ferry building so it did its purpose. The hotel’s lobby was beautifully decorated with big Christmas tree and everyone was taking photos. The service was quite nice as well. The only downside i would say that i tried to call guess service to request the extra slippers but they never answered the call. We tried the next day to order room service but still nobody was answering. Whoever i talked at the front desk, they told me that i can use the phone in the room but it just never worked :/ we prob will use different hotel next time

Great location. Central to everything. They messaged me before I got there to tell me they upgraded me to a larger room with a market street view because we were celebrating an anniversary. But when we got there they downgraded us to a normal room with a view of an office building and alley. The restaurant is... Jaw dropping. Even if you don't eat there, go see it! Most beautiful ceiling in all of San Francisco. But to be honest the good isn't that great and very expensive
