Good value for a weekend getaway
Room was very clean and comfortable. The rooms have been nicely updated. The service was excellent! The location was great with easy access to shopping and many popular bay area destinations.

Card keys
The card keys did not work, I went to office back and forth 4 times to resolve it. The guy in front office told me he is handicapped and could not work with me to my room. If I need somebody else to help, I need to wait for at least an hour. Luckily I opened the door after many tries.
