I was not at all happy to hear about your experience down there. Hopefully we were able to play a small part in changing your experience in San Francisco. I trust the trip down the coast was even more relaxing and breathtaking. Take care.

Well managed hotel close to numerous restaurants,and easy access to bay area.Handy location for San Francisco generally--a cable car line immediately adjoining to the north, interesting small restaurants just around the corner, reasonably priced for San Francisco and pleasant rooms that have been recently updated/remodeled.
