I was in SF on business over a weekend, and so I brought my wife up for the trip. The location is fabulous; a two-block walk from the Ferry Building and all of its restaurants. Additionally, you can catch the streetcar and the cable car nearby. The service is friendly and professional, and are more than willing to assist in... More

Located at the Embarcadero offering an enjoyable, trendy experience. It was comfortable walking to restaurants and the ferry building. Seems much more exotic than being in the city centre. Having cocktails beside the Bay Bridge was a fun event.

I was meeting my husband here to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary. I arrived first, checked in and while chatting with staff they sent up (to my surprise) a really nice bottle of chilled champagne to start our celebration.Our room, though small, was more than adequate, very clean and well appointed. I loved the brick walls, nice touch!! After my... More

We arrived at Hotel Griffon early afternoon (before check-in) on a Saturday. Noel was very helpful in getting us an early check-in. We really enjoyed our proximity to the Ferry building and all of its shops and cafes. After a long day sightseeing and eating dinner at Perry's, we went to bed.....only to be woken up from the band starting... More

Just had a great experience at the Hotel Griffon. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were small but beautifully appointed and comfortable. The location was great--just off the Bay, near the Ferry Building and in the heart of the business and financial district. Lots of good food nearby. I would definitely go back, either for work or...

We were fantastically surprised with this hotel! The rates are affordable for San Francisco and the location is perfect for exploring the Ferry Building (The Slanted Door....YUM!) and farmer's market on Saturdays. The view of the Bay Bridge is breathtaking and lit up at night. The rooms are small but who cares in San Francisco as there are so many... More

Our view from a king room facing the bay bridge was spectacular and the bed was super comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful on the phone and in person. But the acoustics are pretty bad - we coul hear most the conversations in the next room and what was worse was hearing house cleaning knock on doors on our hall... More

You MUST get a room with the Bay Bridge view! It one of the best views in the city day and night. You can people watch as well as watch the ships go by. Rooms are smaller but very efficient with plenty of storage for your things. Staff is friendly and helpful. I can't wait to return.

This was the 1st stop on our month long honeymoon travelling the west coast of American and Canada.
