The location of this hotel is perfect. San Rafael is beautiful. You owe it to yourself to spend time here and experience this town. The art, food, and people are great. The hotel is easy to find and is close to pretty much everything that tourists want to see in the Bay Area. The staff is helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The hotel doesn't feel like a 'cookie-cutter' hotel stay. The whole experience makes you feel at home. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
