"Great staff, walking distance to lots of shopping"
Got to hotel early, room was ready & was offered & accepted an upgrade with a nice view. Room was clean & despite being nearer the elevators was quiet.
Beware of the fancy elevators-- we were engaged in conversation and didn't realize that you need to enter floor number OUTSIDE and then look for the appropriate bay to alight. Made for a hilarious first trip to our room (another couple had just realized the same, but the quickly closing door separated their party).
Barbary Coast coffee shop is super tight squeeze, but it was nice to grab a quick bite.
You should know that hotel is nicely situated to nearby shopping and the walk wasn't too sketchy. Later, we walked to the theater (right turn down Market) which looked really close on a map, but that walk was sooooooo sketchy (even before sunset, so we taxied back after the show because we were afraid to walk that stretch again). That's definitely not on the hotel, but travelers should be aware.
Last but not least, the drive to & from the hotel off the Bay Bridge was REALLY easy. Sometimes you find yourself turned around for an hour on crazy busy one way, pedestrian-filled streets trying to get to hotels in SF, but this is not the case for Parc 55.
We'll stay here again!

They just reopened in April so the whole hotel is very clean. I strayed in imperial club room (thanks to Expedia sale, price was the same as for regular room in Westin). Room was amazing, large, very clean, nicely designed. Here "quiet room" truly means quiet. Loved the small tablet that was easy to browse for hotel amenities and "things to do" around. Was easy to find all information I needed, starting from menus to activities.
Their restaurant Anzu is great. It is a bit pricey but fine dining is never cheap. The same restaurant was serving breakfast which was included into my room rate (extra charge for regular rooms). Well I'm glad I tried it and it's totally worth the money. If you're considering whether to pay for it, give it a try. It is buffet style breakfast that includes Japanese meals too. Sorry I can't remember the names but I'm sure you can find them on Nikko's website menu.
Nice pool, gym, business center (I only used gym though). This is again extra charge for guests not staying in imperial rooms (same for internet).
The staff is very helpful and will do all it takes to make your stay pleasant, just ask. I guess hotel is being liked by many guests - they're already sold out on many options for July. All in all I loved it and will try to stay there again, especially if I get imperial room for such a reasonable price.

This hotel has been upgraded and now has a more safe and professional look and management staff. As a lone traveler I felt very safe and the room was very quiet and comfortable with a beautiful view of the bay. I love the location too as it saves so much time to not stay in SF but I am still close to the shopping that I love in the city. The hotel staff at the front counter and staff in the cafe are first rate.

This hotel is clean and comfortable. It's not "full service", in that it doesn't have a restaurant or room-service on premises, but I didn't really miss that. But, each room is comfortable, clean and modern, with fun retro touches. For example, my room had a Rubik's cube (4x4x4), Tootsie Rolls, an Atari (pre-loaded with original games), and was quite nice. I'd highly recommend it.
