An early Christmas gift surprise for meFirst I do feel that some areas of the hotel are dated especially with its beach ball mural in the elevator vestibule on the 4th floor and some of the Miami-Vice shaded furniture in my room. The room décor seemed out of place. It was whimsical for a Caribbean Resort and not for a hotel in a sophisticated city. However outside of those few minor cosmetic things, this was a solid hotel in San Francisco. Most of my time in San Francisco does not include visiting Fisherman’s Wharf; I visit SoMa, Castro, Outer Sunset or the Mission. So socially, I was out of my element, preferring to stay in the greater Union Square area. However there are a number of conveniences around the hotel that helped me not to notice that I wasn’t in my usual neighborhood. Trader Joe’s, Safeway, Ross: Dress for Less and Cost Plus World Market were all within two blocks from my hotel. So many conveniences were in the area that I nestled in and got cozy. I ended up scratching last minute Christmas gifts off my list and I found plenty of wonderful California wine to bring over for the holiday dinner. I started this review with some of the areas that could be improved, but the lobby and the ground floor common areas of the hotel are contemporary and comfortable to lounge in. There are fire pits to relax by. The hotel is designed to encourage congregating in. It makes the atmosphere welcoming. Plus, a Sheraton bed is always a good one! The staff was lovely, polite and engaging. I was warmly greeted and quickly given the key to my room. They were so professional and personable that I felt at ease in staying here. The F-Market and Wharves trolley line runs on the street north of the hotel. This is my lifeline to my usual life in San Francisco; it takes me through SoMa and into the Castro as well as dropping me off for the BART to get to the Mission or over to Oakland (where I had to go this time.) There are about 5 bus routes that are within two blocks of the city to connect you throughout San Francisco. It was a wonderful stay.First to Review
