Our honeymoon couldn't have started better! There was a complimentary bottle of ice cold sparkling wine waiting for us in our room when we arrived at the Washington Square Inn after a long, long flight from Finland. That certainly made us forget our jet lag for a while! We had a cozy (yes, tiny) room overlooking the Coit Tower and... More

The North Beach location on Washington Square is perfect. My standard room was small, no room for a chair, but nicely appointed. When I bring my wife, I will upgrade to a larger room. My outside room was quiet enough; it would have been quieter if I had closed the double-paned window. I love that the windows open! They provide... More

The best thing about this hotel for us was the great neighbourhood feel the surrounding area has, so different from Union Square. There are restaurants and other eateries in abundance all nearby. They all look good quality. It made choosing where to eat very hard. The square is charming and historic Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower were excellent places to... More

We stayed five nights in this lovely guest house and for once in my life I can't think of anything negative to say. It was a pleasure from start to finish. The breakfast was of such good quality it was as though it was being presented to someone special. The long shared table overlooked a green park where people were... More

They will not accept cancellations within SEVEN days prior to arrival! They will charge you for your "stay" if you cancel within the seven day period. I travel extensively and have never come across anything like this. Most places are 24 hours, and some even extend the time into the afternoon. Not these people!

Almost All Bed and Breakfasts throughout the country have a similar cancellation policy. We always explain our policy before you make a reservation and if you make the reservation online you have to check a box that says you have read and agree to our policy. Small properties like us would not be in business very long if we did... More

All that everyone else has said about the willingness to assist in every way is true. The owners could not have been more hospitable. The price is expensive. At a time when most B&Bs and hotels were offering discounts and incentives, Washington Square did not budge on their price. It is in a great location. The parking garage was only... More

Thank you for your review, we just wanted to correct your statement that our parking garage closes at specific hours. The garage does close late at night but we have a key at the front desk and our night person can always access the garage 24/7for you, no curfew needed. We do feel we offer a good value for San...

This is our second stay at the Inn. Washington Square Inn is within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, shopping and many restaurants. You can easily catch a bus to go to Golden Gate Bridge, Union Square, Golden Gate Park, etc. The inn is very elegant and reasonably priced. The rooms are comfortable. Breakfast is good. We enjoyed the wine... More

We made reservations based on good reviews in several inn guides. We called 3 days before our arrival and had a choice of 3 rooms. We selected one and when we arrived were disappointed to see that it was very small. My first reaction was, "Oops, we made a bad choice in picking this inn." However, our attitude totally changed...
