    An older hotel located in Jack London, it has its charm. The decor is nautical themed, color patterns are orange browd wood, complemented with a shade of blue (ocean). Amenities aren't all that great and it does get noisy with the train tracks being close by, but it does have a great view of the harbor and sunset.

    This hotel was just OK. After not being able to get a room at the Marriott, Courtyard, or Parc55 in San Francisco, I stayed here.
    The trains seem to go by every 15 minutes or so and you can hear the gates go down, the alerts go off and sometimes a train horn blowing. Made for a very difficult night of sleep.
