nothing, other than it was close to where I had to go.
1. lousy management. staff cannot handle disturbed customer. There was a shouting match between staff and customer 2 breakfasts in a row. 2. Heavy weed smell and it was so bad that the entire hallway and the rooms had the smell wafted under the the door. Staff didn't deal with it. I was with 4 other colleagues and we were in 4 different rooms on 2 levels. We all had the same problem. 3. noisy customers in the middle of the night and no one actually did anything till one of my colleagues complained about it. 4. Staff not helpful 5. minimal housekeeping...bathtubs not even washed for a 5 day stay ( shower mode was still on). Absolutely no idea why they throw away perfectly good soap every day! 6. Fitness room poorly equipped and i am not complaining about machines. There are NO towels there and NO wipes. It was gross with someone else's sweat on the machines! 7. I have had better breakfast at similar hotels in the past. The eggs were like rubber. Coffee was bad. Bananas were mostly bruised. etc etc 8. Pillows were awful.
My room and bathroom
The view sucks,it's dated needs renovation badly,no exciting feeling to be there...I had jet lag and fell off to sleep and I was very hungry when I woke up and so around 12:40am I got up and went downstairs to the very old candy/vending machine.The machine didn't take any bills and it has no debit card swipe and so I went to the front counter and the person there said that it only takes coins and so I went back up 3 flights to my room and but luck I had change.So I'm looking for the soda machine and it was upstairs and it was out of everything but the diet drinks.Not happy at all....Why does it cost $3.00 for a small drink? Then I had breakfast Saturday morning and I was just too through when I had just swallowed powdered eggs.I paid $170.00 a night and you mean to tell me that they can not afford real eggs?Then I get a cup of what I thought was apple juice and it was so nasty! And then I got a cup of orange juice and that was gross too!!! They only added about 5percent of juice and the rest was water... I mean REALLY???? Never again...
The hotel room was a nonsmoking room, however our sheets and the room all smelled like cigarette smoke. There was a mixup about our reservations - we had been billed as a no-show the day before. It seems to have been fixed, although I haven't gotten my credit card bill yet to see if I was actually charged for the extra night.
I found the hotel room to be quite shabby.
I had an event to attend in Berkeley and the hotel was convenient, affordable, and comfortable. I will visit again on my next trip.
Everything was fine.
breakfast, parking, easy to find,
no sound separation between unit. can hear snoring next door and squeaking from above. took over 4 hours to get someone out to unclog the toilet and the water underneath the tub.
Ok hotel to visit the city of San Francisco. For American standaard a good continental breakfast.
Hotel is according to the hotelmanagement structural not safe during a earthquak and they put that un a sign at the entrance. Would be good to mention that on the bookingsite. Very thin walls, you can hear the guest next door talking. The location doesnot look an area where you safely walk in the surrounding in the evening.
