Ordinary room but let in too much noise, decent location, neat amenities

Location was pretty good. Just a few walking blocks from Pier 39. On the fifth floor, new building (across the street), the room was filled with noise: chatty pedestrians, drunken revelers, noisy cars, sirens, etc... The room decor was Boring. It was clean enough, but I wouldn't black light it... Bathroom facilities were adequate. The amenities were great for this trip. Shaving cream and ear plugs delivered to the room free! Good breakfast, different menu each day! Staff was professional enough and nice enough.

Location is the best thing.

The hotel is just too noisy with street noise from the events in or out of the hotel that were loud and noisy.

Dishonest Bellman

The room was fine, nothing to brag about, but not bad. The staff was friendly. We asked the Bellman to call a cab for us. He called an unmarked limo without a meter who didn't know the City, made us get out 5 blocks from our destination and charged us more than double what a real cab did door to door on our return trip. I have to believe the Bellman was getting a kickback. Management did not respond to my complaint. I can't recommend this hotel.

Older hotel

The room was adequate but old. The location was not very accessible to attractions in the area without taking some sort of transportation. The staff was disinterested.
