The location was perfect, so close to everything, it was a short walk wherever we wanted to go! When we come back to see a giants game we are definitely... More

We often go to SF Giants games and we occasionally stay overnight in the City. Our favorite stay by far is the Hotel Griffon, located on the Embarcadero and just a few blocks from AT&T Park. Fantastic location, excellent bar/restaurant (Perry's) downstairs and very comfortable rooms. The staff is very attentive and the parking option is a bonus.

We recently stayed at the Hotel Griffon for a friends birthday! We had so much fun! From the second we parked to check in we felt like family.

The room are nice and you definitely have more space than you would expect given the type of hotel. However, it's a big noisy with a lot of machinery running inside and outside the room. This is pretty typical in the US though. Note that I end up checking in quite earlier than expected and the reception did everything possible... More

Hotel Griffon is from now on our go-to hotel in San Francisco. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, every staff person treated us like an old friend returning, even though this was our first stay. Oliva was warm and friendly, granting our request for a late checkout and arranging a taxi for us. Larry brought a... More

This is my new favorite hotel in all of San Francisco! It sits right across from Pier 14 which is a gorgeous new pier constructed to view the stunning lights display on the Bay Bridge. This is the prettiest and most peaceful part of the waterfront. It's not crowded and congested like Pier 39. This is urban nature at its... More

Just a block off the Ferry Building and next to stops for buses, street cars and cable cars, is this cozy and super clean small hotel. The staff was friendly, effective and courteous. They were knowledgeable of the area and helped us book a tour even when it was not a sale for the hotel itself. The rooms are small,... More

I had the opportunity to visit San Francisco for the first time over St. Paddy's Day Weekend. We selected this hotel for its proximity to our office, and in the past our company has stayed at this hotel. I was not prepared for how friendly and accomodating the staff at the hotel was.
