Embassy Hotel hotel description>>
Seriously think about staying here!!!
I stayed at the Embassy in November 2003. It was pretty bad. When we checked in, our reservation was cancelled. They then gave us our allocated rooms and mine, was one that had not been completed!!! Although the room was changed, the shower would not work. Eevn though I complained to the management about it, it wasn't fixed. The neighbourhood and I cannot stress this enough is really awful. We did not feel safe during the day walking and during the night, I would advise people to use cabs. The free breakfast that they provide, is not appetizing. Needless to say I shan't be making a return trip!!
We Wouldn't Even Stay The Second Night For Free!!!
We received a two nights free stay at the Embassy Hotel as a free gift for attending a time share presentation. Having read the reviews from Trip Advisor.com, and knowing that this was not the Embassy Suites, we were prepared for the worst, which is exactly what we got! The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is one of the worst in San Francisco, which includes pan handlers, transients, prostitutes and drug dealing. Upon arrival we were greeted at the counter and given an actual key (as opposed to the what seems to be the standard, in today's technology, a key card) We then boarded an ancient elevator, which had a door that needed to be opened from the outside with a door handle. The elevator held only four people at a time and would not operate unless the entry door was closed. (At one point we waited approx 10 minutes for the elevator on the fourth floor, due to the fact that the entry door hadn't been closed on the ground floor.) Our walk to our room was met with trash left in the hallway (which was still there the next day) by other guests. Most of the other guests seemed to be students of the Culinary Academy located across the street from the hotel. Upon entry into our room, we discovered several black mold spots on the bathroom walls, poor patch jobs to the bathroom tile, a picture which was hung upside down and very few amenities. After spending the night listening to the neighborhood locals scream and yell, hearing the numerous sirens go past the hotel, waking to the sound of the guest in the room next door throwing up, accompanied with the odor of vomit, we decided to check out, even though we still had another free night stay left. The only bright spots were that it was an architecturally interesting building, which was built in the 1930's, although it needed serious remodeling and the Temple bar and grill had pretty good food.
A place to avoid!
An awful place in one of the worst neighborhoods in San Francisco. Our room stunk, the bed sheets were sticky, the bathroom was old and small. We found broken glass under the furniture. No computer outlet.
