Very charming B&B in the heart of North Beach convenient to Fisherman's Wharf, little Italy, Chinatown, Ferry Building, Cable Cars, shops, and restaurants. The Inn is well appointed with decor the suites the Inn. There is no a/c or elevator so take that into consideration. We didn't miss either because of the time of year we were there. The Inn... More

The location of this Inn was best part. Easy and close to lots of places to eat. It's right in North Beach. Easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf and other great attractions. It has a very old house feel and no air conditioning. Though it wasn't extremely hot, it was stuffy and warmer than we are used to for sleeping. We... More

The best part of this hotel is the location. It is right in North Beach, the Italian section, with fantastic restaurants. It is a 5 minute walk to Chinatown. Coit Tower, Lombard Street and Fisherman's Wharf are within a short walk. Truly the location can't be beat. We picked this hotel since we had stayed at another Four Sisters property... More

We stayed four nights as part of our California road trip in September, visiting from the UK. Like many places it has pro's and con's and you'd always need to pick places that suit best what you need. Overall we liked it a lot, and the location is a winner for us. Positives: -wonderful location on Washington Square, which is... More

Just returned from a trip to the US with our last stay of two nights in the Washington Inn. Having flown in from Las Vegas we were underwhelmed with the Washington Inn. We'd expected a chic boutique hotel but instead had a French Rennaisance style B&B. No lift so had to lug two 23kg cases up the stairs, no air-con,... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. I am so pleased that you enjoyed our location in the heart of North Beach as well as our breakfast fare and service. The flashing lights and constant motion of Las Vegas do seem like a world away from the understated elegance of Washington Square Inn so I... More

We stayed here for three nights whilst in San Francisco and on a four week road trip around California with our friends. We had booked room 11, a Deluxe Queen with a bathroom. The room was extremely compact but very cosy. It was extremely well appointed with very tasteful decorations and soft furnishings. It had coffee making facilities but no... More

Roamer7456, North Beach is certainly a popular and bustling neighborhood, we are so fortunate to have such a wonderful location. San Francisco temperatures range from 50 to 70 most of the year with few exceptions. Normally our coastal influence cools us off quite effectively in the evenings. Our staff is always willing to help with luggage and strives to provide... More

We just returned from a 7 night stay at WSI. This was our second time to stay there. We stayed in one of the premium rooms with a private bath. The staff were very friendly and always helpful and courteous. Our rooms were always kept very clean and made up every day. We had the option to have breakfast served... More

We have stayed at 2 other Four Sisters inns (in L.A. and Santa Monica) so that we had big expectations for our visit to S.F. We stayed here for three nights. It is expensive. The Inn is well located at Washington Square in the heart of little Italy and close to Chinatown. It is an old gracious mansion. The main... More

Really a great area. Prices typically high for SF. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a noisy location, but that didn't bother us. The rooms could use an update. The carpets really need to be replaced.
