    You really should visit Michael Minas before it shutters. The food - the tuna tartare is great & the famous lobster pot pie rules - is what brought foodies here, but the service is king. Read more

    Walk past the reception, make a left and ride the glass elevator for the best views overlooking the bay. Then hit the Clock Bar for an inventive cocktail – try the Hawaii 5.1.

    Even if you're not staying at the hotel, ride the glass elevators up to the top for great views overlooking Union Square. Come back and do it again at night.

    Do not get a room near the elevators. They sound like planes going by every 5 seconds. Hard to sleep.

    If you stay only for two night take the green choice and don't get room service. You get to choose between free wifi, bonus points or a free movie I think. Plus you get a $5 voucher for food/drinks
