    Location, availability of Uber drivers, value. Near enough to family in SF to get together with a short Uber. My purpose for the trip was to help a family member and I was not at the hotel much except for sleeping.

    My room this time was on the Main Street in the Wharf Building and the Marriott hotel across the street had trash pickup at 3 am which was very noisy and lasted over an hour including loud talking and clinging of metal containers. Lost some sleep due to this. Otherwise hotel was quiet. Will specify room location next time!

    The view of our room wasn't great but we checked in late at night and leaving early in the morning,so we didn't care. It was clean ok but behind the drawers and the TV stand wasn't for a long time, lots of dust and coweds..The parking was very expensive, $57.00 total. The other hotel we had stayed a week ago 2 blocks away it was $26.00....Unbeleivable priced! The wrapped sandwich that we had from the "snack booth " restaurant (it was closed), it was very good and priced fair.

    Garage parking price, $57.00 total...too expensive...

    We found a condom in the bed!

    We walked into our room and decided to check the beds before we went to sleep because we heard of bed bugs at this hotel. And to our surprise we found a condom! We called the front desk and they sent up a security guard (not a manager, which was weird). They switched our room but offered no other accommodations. After we called to complain they said they couldn't do anything more than they did...they also mentioned they would call us back and never did. Not a good experience.... I can understand a messy room, maybe a cigarette but an open condom on the bed is unacceptable.
