Starting at 6:30am, breakfast was prepared for its guests without fail. Hot pipping scrambled eggs, bacons, muffins, DIY waffles, fresh fruits and dozens of variety beverages await you. The capacity of eatery area near to the front desk was about 120 guests. Just outside the buffet bars, was an outdoor pool and a hot tub. Adjacent to it was a miniature tennis-cum-basketball court. Some part of the day, all we want were to relax and laze around in the hotel. It rents basketball, tennis, and badminton rackets for free. Beside these, there were rentals for novels and board games (including Scrabble, Monopoly, Boggle, etc.) at the front desk. It was so fun without even stepping out of the hotel.
From Monday to Thursday, the hotel serves complimentary snacks from 5:30-7:30pm. The variety of food changes everyday, except for every Wednesday's BBQ (grilled chicken/beef). There are dishes like vegetable tacos, chicken wings, meatballs and spaghetti, corn dogs, fried rice, chips and dips, and nachos. Cans of soda, beers, and red wine were self-service. All these were worth a hearty dinner!
We had a corner room on the second floor that faced the waterfront. The room never failed us. Stepping into the room was a kitchenette with a giant GE fridge, wooden cabinets, and excessive storage for food. A family-like stove and a microwave were tucked in the corner. The first idea that jumped into our mind was to do some simple homemade food for ourselves, which inspired us to head to nearby Albertsons to stock up on raw meats, pasta sauce, pasta, two cans of Campbell's soup, microwaveable food, and a big tub of Dreyer's double-chocolate-fudge-brownie ice cream.
During nighttime, we slipped into our bathrobes after a hot bath and made ourselves cups of peppermint tea while enjoying the free high-speed Internet access and doing research of San Francisco and tomorrow's adventure!
That's what I call the "home touch", and we truly felt it for the two and a half weeks we were here.
