The Hyatt is a beautiful hotel right on the Embarcadero. Our room was a suite that overlooked the Bay Bridge (beautiful view). The staff were very accommodating with bringing what we needed to our room (i.e., a full length mirror and extra chair). The hotel is within walking distance to everything you need (restaurants, shops, etc).
Well located. Affordable (except for parking). A less hectic feel than Union Square places (for more "suburban" out of town guests).
