Stayed here with my family for 4 days (2 Adult / 2 Child) from Friday to Monday.
Landed around 9PM in SFO and grabbed a taxi from the airport which cost us $55 including tip via taxi meter.
Travel time from SFO down to hotel was around 30 minutes as there were no traffic on that evening.
The hotel is tall and massive.
We were upgraded to a higher floor with a good view of the city skyline.
Breakfast food selection here were pretty good. They have dumplings (Chinese assortment) and Japanese selection for food.
Our breakfast wasn't included in the room rate but as a Gold HHonors member, we have an option for a $20 per night credit at their F&B outlet which you could use for Breakfast or for a certain number of HHonors points.
So basically we opted-in on Breakfast. We paid around $30 net for 2 adults including the discount and kids eat free.
The room we had was really big comparable to any European Hilton rooms we normally staying.
The two only bit downside were the room was a bit dated and needs some upgrading especially the carpets and window curtains (regular washing maybe). With regards to the surrounding of the hotel, we found it a bit dodgy. Been to some Asian, South American and European less fortunate cities but the number of 'aggressive' homeless people here felt like I'm not in a first world country - or let's say first world city.
Needles everywhere just literally outside the hotel. Very intimidating homeless people as they keep on asking money from you.
The air conditioning and heating facility in the room works really well.
On our first night, we were starving and couldn't find any thing interesting food to eat in Room Service menu and the Burger King in front of the hotel was a life-saver.
The hotel is just beside of one of the Cable car (tram) main station going to Lombard Street down to Fisherman's Wharf.
The hotel is around 5-10 mins walk to Union Square where you could start doing your city bus tour.
The meeting point for Yosemite bus tour is same way to Union Square.
The distance from hotel to Golden Gate Bridge by Uber is around 20-30 minutes.
All in all, it's a decent stay.
Great location with many nice restaurants in the proximity. Hotel is outdated apart from the lobby. Hallways and bathrooms are also not upgraded. Service is good. Toiletries specially soaps and shampoos needs upgrade to higher quality.
