    5/5 Excellent

    Excellent location for Oakland or San Francisco visit. Ferry to San Francisco 100 meters out back door 45min (Max) and $6 to ferry building. In downtown meeting San Francisco in less than 1 hour during rush hour. Restaurant is rarely busy, maybe location although public parking right across street. I have thought the restaurant a bit inconsistent. Plank was busy, and was staffed as though it stays busy. The time I dined at Scott restaurant I was satisfied overall. Nuts at happy hour stale. Would rather fresh high quality peanuts over stale fancy mixed nuts. Of course fresh mixed nuts would be top drawer... The staff is always courteous, helpful. Eighth or ninth stay, likely to return in future...

    Not the best experience

    The main areas of the hotel did not have air conditioning. One of the elevators was out of service. I lost my valet ticket instead of the staff locating the car from the ticket number i provided verbally she made it like i was asking for a car that wasn’t mine. Even when i told her the rental Car contract is in the glove box to check for verification. It also was 15 minutes before we even saw a valet to come pick cars up. The room was decent but the walls were thin so we could hear our neighbors.
