We recently stayed at the Washington Square Inn and found the experience very rewarding.The staff were very cordial and efficient ,especially Brian the manager who couldn't have been more accommodating. We both enjoyed the breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice and look forward to staying at this venue again.

We have stayed at the Washington Square Inn each time we've visited San Francisco. The rooms are beautiful, romantic, and comfy. Views out the window of the square, Telegraph Hill, etc. Nice wine, cheese and cookies are placed on the table downstairs in the afternoon. The Inn is within walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Telegraph Hill, City Lights Books... More

The rooms are small but boutique, we loved it. The staff were so friendly. Breakfast delievered to your room was such a treat and so relaxing. It is a bit away from fisherman's wharf and it is fine walking downhill, but uphill in steep San Francisco streets was tough so we opted for a taxi most nights. This place is... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location. The staff are extremely helpful, the parking (difficult in San Francisco) is easily accommodated in a parking garage a short distance away, and they offer a nice wine and cheese in their elegant lobby in the late afternoon. The rooms are very small, and it's an older hotel, but I would return here,... More

Had the pleasure of visiting the San Francisco area in early November and was so pleased we chose the Washington Square Inn to visit for a couple of nights. We have used the Select Registry Guide on several occasions with much success and this time was no exception. Nice and quaint accommodations smack dab in the middle of where you... More

We wanted to walk and see San Francisco and we don't like big chain hotels. This fit the bill. Furnishings were unique, some antique, it was quiet and very clean. There were extras like wine and cheese in the early evening and everyone was friendly and knowledgable without being too familiar.we'd go back.

My wife and I stayed for 8 nights at this great B&B located in San Francisco's North Beach. The inn was well maintained and very smartly decorated. Our breakfasts were served in our room and items picked the night before from a card left outside the door and then attached to the outside door handle. Wine and cheese were available... More

My husband and I stayed at the Washington Square Inn the first week of November. This is a hidden jewel: very well maintained, quiet place to stay in a very central location. The staff was very attentive and the rooms, although small in comparison to a hotel, well decorated and very comfortable. I would stay again in a heart beat... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in early November. Our room was quite small but well appointed, clean and quiet( 2nd floor). We loved the North Beach location on Washington Square park- great for people watching, especially Tai Chi in the morning! We also loved the wine and cheese happy hour; it was a great way to meet and talk... More
