The hotel is in a very good location for when conducting business in the Embarcadero area of San Franscisco. Value was good considering what other hotels were charging in the area. The lobby, atrium and overall architecture of the facility was impressive, however, the actual rooms are very standard and not in pace with the rest of the facility's design and decor. I found it odd that the towels and facecloths were in baskets sitting on the marble floor near the toilet? The height of the shower head was designed for someone 5'4" or less. And counter space in the bathroom was very inadequate. Despite that, I would probably stay in this hotel again for my next business trip.

This is a business traveler-oriented small hotel with small rooms and an array of services on request. It is good if you don't want to pay for a lot of extras you will never use. There is a fitness center with 2 ellipticals and 2 treadmills, as well as some weights, though when we were there one treadmill was not working. We also had an odd glitch: we checked in around noon, which is done at a kiosk kind of like an airport check-in device. Later, when we were sound asleep after 11 pm, suddenly somebody opened the door and turned on the light, scaring us out of our sleep and out of our wits. It turned out that the computer system had gone down and the staff wasn't sure whether our room was occupied, so they sent an employee to look. Honestly, if you don't know whether there is somebody in the room it is better to call the room, or call and then knock; anything other than just barge in. So I do recommend being sure that the deadbolt is locked before you go to sleep. Also they responded to our objections by trying to explain themselves, rather than apologizing, and we had to push to get them to do something minimal like not charge us for the night when they prevented us from sleeping.

The guy at the bar was rude and had an attitude both times I asked him for something within his reach. One day I asked for a few limes (that he uses for cocktails) and he took like 7 minutes and then said next time he would have to charge me the price of a fruit bowl. He only gave me a hand full and I tipped him $5! He was just a jerk overall. The rest of the staff was OK. I travel a lot and I felt that the staff here was a little impersonal and just didn't enjoy their jobs.

Le Meridien is a lovely hotel, but lacks any real personality or uniqueness. On arrival there was an incredibly loud protest at the front entrance (those wanting the hotel staff to unionize). They were very aggressive and loud, which started the visit on a tough note. Our room was lovely. No complaints there. The challenge is with the location - on one hand super close to Ferry Building/Embarcadero, and Union Square, but somewhat in a no-mans-land of the Financial District, so few restaurants, stores closed on weekend, dark blocks. Which leaves no one on the streets but homeless people which is a little unsettling for tourists.

This was our second stay. Both visits have been for a full week. Some SF's best views if you're bayside on the higher floors. Check in was great. The executive lounge is convenient particularly as there are no minibars in the rooms. Coffee, tea and bottled water are supplied to the rooms each day. Bathrooms are well stocked and the daily housekeeping is excellent. All common areas are always very clean and tidy.

This was the first hostel I ever stayed in and I couldn't be happier.
Great location, friendly and helpful staff, great simple accommodations, a great overall experience. Hostels are extremely social and Green Tortoise is no different.
Met many interesting people and made some friends for life.
I highly recommend this place if you travel alone to San Francisco.
The feel of the Hostel will make you feel like part of international family.
I'd like to thank the staff for their help and courtesy.

Pocket Guide: San Francisco Financial District - Ferry Building Hotels
The bulls and bears of industry tread the streets of the Financial District, home to the city’s tallest buildings, including the iconic Transmerica Pyramid. The towers give way to The Embarcadero, the broad, palm-lined avenue that begins at the San Francisco Giant’s AT&T Park and ends at Fisherman’s Wharf. The road passes by the Ferry Building, a landmark transformed into an artisanal food market.
