Le Meridien Hotel
We stayed here to night before our wedding at SF City Hall. It was a great location and only a 10 minute drive. It is right by the embarcadero and we had a room with a view of the bridge. Everyone was so nice from bell hops to the front desk. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We stayed here during our wedding weekend since we didn't want to trek back & forth from Oakland. The rate was great , the Bay view (from a high floor) was wonderful through the floor to ceiling windows, bathroom was spacious & they actually had really good soaps, shampoos, etc. I like the decor, but I saw a few rooms & they literally were all alike. Very gray. We actually were offered a suite, but it seemed to be the same size as the executive king room, which made the suite seem small & grayer. Kind of depressing, actually. So, we went for the more spacious single room. Their restaurant is ridiculously over-priced, as is their bar. But they have these great drinks--a cucumber gin smash (or something) that is just heavenly. Ordered room service very late, but the food was not great. And maybe this was just me being whatever, but I was also a little disappointed that they didn't do anything special for us--all of the staff knew we had just gotten married (I had gotten ready at the hotel), so a bottle of wine in our room would have been nice, right? Or even a free drink at the bar when we came in to have martinis at 1am after the wedding? Nope. Bottom line: it's a great place for business travelers & tourists, but a romantic weekend--not so much.
