There was spotty wifi connection but rooms very very clean and comfortable. Parking was first come first serve but not enough for everyone in the hotel. However, staff helped by putting our car safely by handing them the keys. Overall a good value for the area.

We booked a room for handicap access on the 1st floor, was given a room on the 3rd floor and NO Elevator. the best the hotel could do was to put us on the 2nd floor. And was given the only room left, So 3 people had to share a queen size bed. Thank goodness we only stayed 1 day.

We thank you for your business, we really appreciate our Wyndham rewards guests, this sounds very unusual, we always reserve any handicap room in advance for those who request it. If we are not aware of your needs upon arrival there is a chance that our accessible rooms can be taken, however we would give you a room with the...

The room was extremely small. The shower curtain was torn.the safety lock on the door was missing. there were stains on the curtains. The cleaning staff left...

We are sorry for the noise, we are not in the rooms and sometimes have no idea, however we are more than happy to come and ask the guests to be quiet and respectful of other guests. We are sorry your stay was not what you anticipated. We will make sure that we check the room and make any changes...

Our room was nice and clean, staff very friendly. However, When we specifically requested our sheets be changed they were not. And when they say limited parking, they mean it- there were about 10 spots and they were very narrow!!

The hotel is well priced for the area. Great location to visit the Northern area of San Francisco. The breakfast was a basic meal. The beds are comfortable (soft), for those who like that style. Resturants close by, along with some great pizza places for the kids.

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
