What it's like

The Bristol bouquet of Gerbera daisiesOne guest wrote the Bristol to say her room—one of 102 guest rooms—felt like her bedroom at home. The Bristol’s décor is uncomplicated with bright colors and modern art prints and the windows look out onto the city or bay. Guest rooms are pet friendly, with water and food dishes for the asking. All the rooms are non-smoking.
