Very Good 8.0
Inspiring location; expect surprises
I had a nice stay. The books and quotes everywhere are a nice, inspiring touch! I got room 215 at first, without a king bed like I had reserved, the noise from the street was a bit much and the floor/bed didn't seem level. I called reception the next day and they got me something much nicer on floor 7. The chromecast on the TV worked in 215 but not 708. Beware: There is an "amenity fee" of $30 per night, that you have to pay at checkout. I was surprised!

Good 6.0
Concierge is great but the rest is questionable.
The concierge was great BUT the parking is $60 per day. We rented 2 rooms and for some reason they started calling at 11:59 a.m. telling the other room that they needed to leave or pay for late check out. However, they never called our room. They also refused to work with us to refund or even credit for a later stay when we thought we would reschedule because of Corona. We even offered to keep one of the rooms and spend the credit at the hotel and they still said no. They said either we keep the reservation or lose the money. The hotel blamed and blamed the hotel.

Great Location but a bit outdated
Great location, nice staff, hotel a bit outdated and some rooms extremely small and dark - window facing brick wall. We had to ask for a different room even though we booked the highest tier.

Had a rough Uber drop off to the Emblem from SFO. As soon as we walked in the eucalyptus aroma of the lobby was a pleasure from the rough ride previously on. Check in was a breeze. Hot towels and a refreshing drink was given. Great staff. Excellent room. Awesome location. Will definitely stay
