What a great Boutique hotel in the Heart of the union square. We were in a corner king room in the top floor and had views looking right at Union Square and Nob Hill. The staff was ultra friendly. Our room was spacious with a very comfortable bed. Piano and guitar in the afternoon while Sherry and Tea was served... More

Great Central location in an old fashioned boutique hotel. Really old world charm and it was the exact opposite to staying at a large corporate chain hotel. Staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for them. The free wifi was great and worked every time without a hitch. Free coffee every morning was good and only a stones... More

We stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon to California. I would sum this up as a traditional American City hotel. The location is good (more for shopping at Union square than tourist attractions at fisherman's wharf), decor is dated, service great, not enough lifts/elevators and the rooms are small. We had 2 suitcases and you would have... More

We stayed at the Kensington Park hotel for three nights in July 2014. The hotel is totally OK, with good location (only steps away from Union Square). The rooms are a bit on the small side, with one cupboard being actually blocked by the bed. Bathroom, toiletries: OK. No fridge. The free WiFi works perfectly, which is not something I... More

A quirky hotel with unusual decor. The room was comfortable but had limited tea and coffee making facilities. Coffee was available on the 9th floor between 7&10 am. Tea and sherry (odd combination!) were available in the reception area between 4 &6pm. There is an amazing cafe next door for breakfast - lots of variety - very good standard and... More

The location is great. Bike rental place is just around the corner, all the shops are within few min, same with restaurants and coffee shops. Walk through China town to pier 39 and fisherman wharf. Not a,short walk but nice. We walked to mission district too but I wasn't one of those great walks. Morotons steakhouse next door- it's excellent.... More

We're staying at the Kensington Park for the first time - only place we get a res. Good things about it: Location - smack in the middle of Union Sq, shopping, restaurants... Rooms are small but sweet. Beds are definitely comfy. No gym & the gym that is available is a few blocks away and Horrible - a closet with... More

We had a nice room, clean and tidy. The room was one of the smaller ones but suited our needs. Right by Union Square so a great location for everything. Friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed our stay.

We picked this from a short list provided by the SF operator/air line. A great choice for location, staff and definitely elegant style. Unfortunately old style elegance doesn't allow for all modern facilities in the rooms , e.g. fridge, AC etc. Great bed and hot shower tho. Would stay here again.

We stayed here for 5 nights, the hotel is nice, very small rooms,it has charm and character. Bed was comfortable & clean. Great Location, close to BART station, & just off Union Square. I would stay here again, just for the location. Maybe needs to improve room Service dining, as there is any after 9pm.
