The facilities were beautiful, and the interior smelled great. You get this cool array of Bliss Spa products in your room: aromatic shampoo, conditioner, soap, and lotion (aka "body butter"). The gym and pool with a Jacuzzi is nice, though small. The service was average (they didn't have matches!), but overall, it was a nice place to be in a good location.

How can anyone go wrong with a garlic restaurant?! The food is fantastic; everything is infused with copious amounts of garlic, including the bread, olive oil, and mashed potatoes. Go with the surf 'n turf, served with your choice of tiger prawns or crab to go with a delectable piece (choose your size) of prime rib. Yummy!

We rented bikes at this placed called Blazing Saddles, which has several locations in the Fisherman's Wharf area. We biked for about 4 hours -- started at Fisherman's Wharf and went along the bay and the beach, over the Golden Gate Bridge, and into Sausalito. We took the ferry back!
