My wife and I stayed for five nights at the Kensington in September. It was our first trip to San Fran so we didn't really know our way around. Well as you can guess from my title we found this hotel was in the perfect location foe just about everything. The cable car, restaurants, shopping china town, the hop on... More

This hotel was a great location for the start of our journey down highway 1. We travelled as a family with 4 adults staying in a corner view room, with 2 double beds. The room was clean and tidy, not very spacious as there was 4 of us - although this is a 4 person room ( no where to... More

A small boutique hotel that is in a fantastic location, just off of Union Square. We stayed for 4 nights in May and had a corner room overlooking the square on one side and Nob Hill on the other. The room was a comfortable size for the two of us and very clean and tidy with lovely décor. The reception... More

The hotel has a great location in Union Square. Very comfortable rooms and beds. The best part of our stay was dealing with the hotel staff. They were so pleasent and helpful. We had some changes in our travel plans and they were very interested in making our stay a great experience.

I stayed here during my first visit to San Francisco. The staff were incredibly kind and very helpful. They helped us figure out transportation and let us store our bags there the entire day after we checked out since we had a late flight and wanted to keep exploring the city. The rooms are small, but cute and clean. The... More

We were surprised to find the hotel actually a few floors above a theatre! (You can't hear any noise at all). The hotel has an old fashioned charm with extremely tasteful decor, and nice little touches like free tea and sherry in the afternoon, accompanied by a piano player or guitarist. The rooms are very comfortable, in fact the beds... More

The doorman and desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. They will make a dinner reservation if desired The Farallon is next door and they offer preferred seating. The room was not large, but certainly adequate and nicely furnished. This includes a coffeemaker and mini-fridge. The bathroom was plenty large and with all of the items you might need. We... More

No air conditioning but windows open and it was nice to have fresh air in the roomm For warmer days there is a quiet ceiling fan to move air around the room. WE stayed... More

This was our last stop on our road trip of California and I was so glad the last hotel made a memorable experience - the beds are so comfy could not wait to sink in them after a busy day and reluctant to get out in the morning . The staff were all so helpful and friendly always wiling to... More
