As with many of my hotels, I got the Kensington Park Hotel from Hotel Tonight. It was one of the less expensive properties on the day's list, and after reading many glowing reviews, I picked it. One of the main reasons, aside from the price, was the effusive praise of the beds. People were saying these were the best beds... More

Upon check in we were upgraded to a suite on the top floor. The room was absolutely beautiful along with the hotel. Unfortunately, the fan in our room didn't work and there were a few other glitches (like getting our car from the lot. Things were backed up for a little over an hour). Nothing too terrible. We told the... More

The hotel is situated in a great place. You can walk to the train, the trolley, the bus and yes is so closed to the shopping district. The hotel staff were very pleasant. The hotel was clean and the room was well kept. My only suggestion to people booking here is if they stay in room #51 on the 9th... More

The only good thing I can say about this hotel is that it is in a good location. The rooms are very tatty and in need of decorating. I stayed on the top floor and the direct view from my window was all the various bits of rubbish left on other roofs. I have stayed in San Francisco several times... More

I had to switch hotels from The Orchard to The Kensington Park as the rate in the Orchard went to high for the second week of my trip. Quite a gothic reception area and the rooms were pleasant and the usual size for the Union Square district. One major issue was the lack of aircon but I knew that before... More

This property is fabulous. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the location was fantastic. Just off the cable car line, you have easy access to the Wharf. Union Square is one block over and there are countless shops and restaurants to keep you busy for days. The rooms are nicely sized and we had a King sized bed which... More

The Kensington Park Hotel at Union Square was a most delightful stay. Beds were a dream, room was clean and cozy and the location was awesome to getting around town, or walking to a great place to eat or shop. All recommendations from Vincent on places to eat were spot on delicious!
