Excellent hotel. Had a great visit. I extended for an extra night. My only complaint is that it was a pain to extend for another night. Had to book it online and then check out and back in. But… great property.

The hotel is very nice, clean, great location. This is not my first time at a Riu Hotel, that is why I chose it. However in this location the staff during breakfast was not friendly, nor flexible. I understand that it is a busy time, but refusing to give us a table for five unless everybody is there was annoying. Our last day we end up having separated tables because of this. I did not like it at all.

Friendly staff, clean hotel, great location! Breakfast buffet was awesome but there is no on-site food available after breakfast. Refrigerator in room but no microwave. Parking is expensive and hotel guests pay the same parking rate as public.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Riu. Our room was very clean and quiet with a comfortable king bed as well as a couch. We booked a Superior room which are on the top floor with a large angled window. They aren't a hotel know for views but we could see Coit Tower from ours. All the windows in the hotel need a good cleaning would be my only complaint. The toilet and tub/shower area is small as others comment on but we didn't have a problem with it. The breakfast in the morning was fabulous! So many choices of breakfast foods, you will be amazed. The lines can get long but they do a good job getting people seated rather quickly. There is plenty of seating areas for their guests. Lots of staff are there taking away your empty plates and cleaning tables for the next guests. HELPUL HINTS-They don't have a laundry room but we found a laundromat called Wash This 3 blocks away. A cute place painted with murals inside in a nice neighborhood. There is a Safeway Grocery in the parking ramp across the street. Don't pay crazy prices at the nearby 7 Eleven. Ask where Safeway is if you want snacks, soda or bottled water.
