Michael, Thank you for your comments and maybe I can shed some light and help you out. Our WIFI is actually the fastest up and down of any hotel in the Bay Area (30 mbps). We have put extra emphasis on this because we know how important it is to our visitors. However, WIFI issues are the number one complaint in the hotel industry, so we work hard to adapt our guest systems to ours. Also, unfortunately homelessness is a real problem in all cities and especially the Bay Area. We are very fortunate to have much less of an issue than San Francisco or even Downtown Oakland. We are protected from most problems by our freeway location. And yet we get the wonderful water views and glorious sunrises and sunsets. Try us again as I'm positive you'll have a wonderful time. As you mentioned our great staff will always make the difference. We hope to see you again, real soon.
