I have to say, Oliva was so kind and made sure we had convenient, safe storage for our luggage until a room became available for checkin. The room was small, but tastefully designed to optimize the small space. I was VERY comfortable and the decor was tasteful and warm, yet modern. My favorite part the room was the window seat...

We stayed at the Griffon for 4 nights as part of a road trip around California for our honeymoon. We were greeted by Michael and Vanessa who were very friendly and helpful and on hearing that we were on our honeymoon upgraded us for free to an executive suite with roof terrace - really nice touch. The room was great... More

I had 2 others properties booked and finally decided on Hotel Griffon. Loved loved loved it. The location is fantastic and quiet! Lovely staff and we booked the Executive Suite and it was perfect. Huge room. High ceilings, 2 TVs and a private....good size patio. Which was well worth the extra cost, It didn't have a bay view but we... More

We called the hotel in a panic as our other accommodation fell through. We found the hotel on Yelp and they did not disappoint. They has one room available on Pride Weekend in SF. Since we were not intending to spend the night or the money on a hotel, I was not happy to have to, however, the staff and... More

I've stayed at Hotel Griffon twice and have enjoyed the stay both times. The rooms are nice, if small. I stayed in a room with a harbor view and it was fantastic. The attached restauraunt, Perry's. is great for dinner or just to grab a drink. The staff is very friendly. The hotel is walking distance to the Ferry Building... More

Lovely but small room. This was the pride weekend so prices were hiked everywhere. The value for money might be better at other times. Only one elevator so be prepared to wait. Some noise from the hall while I was trying to rest. Staff friendly, helpful. Perry's restaurant on premises good but pricey. They serve til 11 pm which was... More

Before staying at this hotel I was a bit skeptical due to some of the negative reviews. But thankfully they were all wrong! I'm a fussy traveller, this hotel was exceptional. The bed is super comfy (no pillow issues like many travellers have), the TV is massive and set at the ideal height to watch when in bed. Staff are... More

My family (me, my husband, and two kids, 7 and 9) recently stayed 4 nights at the Hotel Griffon. The room was wonderful (clean, spacious, modern, and quiet) and very comfortable. The staff was extremely hospitable, professional, and friendly. Over the 4 days, we felt like the front desk and bell staff had actually grown to know us. (For instance,... More

Small rooms but clean. Had a room with no view, I guess because of the discounted corporate rate I had. Due to my strict dietary requirements, the restaurant was unable to serve my meals. However, Oliva at the front desk found a workaround solution that worked perfectly! That is the one thing I am most grateful for. The staff are... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
