The daily quiche-type dish at breakfast was kept on a warming tray but was only tepid and usually not very tasty. Otherwise the meal, included in the room rate, provided more than most hotel buffet breakfasts, including healthy choices for diabetics such as hardboiled eggs and yogurt to balance the cereal, porridge, and toast.
The staff, every single one of them, could not do enough for us! We were beguiled by the overall charm of the place. All the little extras: complimentary daily newspaper and cookies; free apples, oranges, coffee (both caf and decaf), ice and bottled water 24/7. Daily 'happy hour' with wines and heavy hors d'oeuvres gave us a chance to unwind and to meet new people. The location on Bush Street between Taylor and Mason was perfect--a three-block walk to Union Square, a few blocks more to the Market Street trolley, and no loiterers hanging around. Also a lot of recommended restaurants within walking distance. Our bedroom, a queen with fireplace, was just the right size and had been outfitted as though someone knew all our personal quirks and preferences.
