We spent four nights at this hotel. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very clean. This is an old building so be prepared there is no air conditioning, only ceiling fans. I had only wished there would have been a larger vanity in the bathroom. There is not much space for toiletries. The concierges were both... More

My wife and I had a wonderful visit to San Fransicso recently and enjoyed the Kensington Park Hotel quite a lot. It was a lovely place, small and intimate and the rooms lovely, especially the wonderful beds. All was well until one of the two elevators near out room began making rumbling noises and we requested help. The front desk... More

In order to like this hotel, you have to be the kind of traveler who places no value on things like amenities, convenience, cleanliness and comfort in your hotels. Whenever I see a hotel labeled "boutique" I know its really code for OLD. I made the mistake of believing what others wrote about this hotel. BIG MISTAKE. Sure, this hotel... More

This is an older-hotel but has been excellently maintained and looked after. The room was immaculately clean and very comfortable. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant but within a couple of blocks there are several diners for breakfast. It is in a very central location with Union Square 30 seconds walk away. I paid about $280 dollars for the night... More

This Hotel is lovely, & close to everything, walking distance if you prefer. It is also a short cab ride to the warf. Rent a car down the street, & go across the beautiful golden gate bridge, or walk on the bridge, go to Muir Woods... The rooms are a bit small, but have comfortable beds, & clean! Equipped with...
