Stayed here for 4 nights. Clean and comfortable with friendly staff. We ate at Perrys one night - food was ok. Well located for Embracadero and Ferry Building plus California cable car line. Our room, 202, had no view except of air con vents and on 2 days we were woken at 6am by very loud scraping and clanking noises.

Great location - near to waterfront, buses etc. Staff so helpful. Rooms well stocked with essentials. Rooms very pokey - you'll be expecting more for your money, but you can get free fruit, free tea, coffee and water every day. Great restaurant attached to it too- which is good value. rooms are quiet too. Don't be tempted to take a... More

Stayed at the Hotel Griffon from August 14 to 19th with our two daughters in the Executive Suite. From the minute we arrived to the time we left, we have nothing but good things to say about our stay. From Etienne at the front desk (Go Rangers!), who checked in on us everyday and provided us with any extras we... More

Oliva at the front desk was absolutely amazing. She went out of her way to get a couple of special items I requested. For me, the customer service trumps any of the following criticisms. The room was small but clean and nice. The coffee was terrific but it would have been nice to have something more than banana and apple... More

Stayed four nights in bay view room, can't fault anything. Luggage drop off on arrival before returning rental car was handled faultlessly. Loved our room, turn down service each night and Peets tea and coffee each morning was a nice touch. We spent some time in Perrys for a meal and several drinks at the bar, great choice of beers...

Stayed here as part of our honey moon and received a free upgrade on our room along with champagne and a card. Very friendly staff and would highly recommend staying here. The hotel also has a great location close to the waterfront and easy access to public transportation if you want to travel around the Bay Area

Stayed here as part of a whistle stop west coast tour. Great location within easy walking of many of the districts in San Francisco. Also for a nominal $5 daily fee you can use the YMCA gym next door. Tea and coffee in reception in they morning, helpful reception staff

Good proximity to the docks (lovely walks/restaurants and cycle hire for the GoldenG.Bridge) and the BART public transport (out to Oakland or airport). Room was comfortable but window barely functioned for daylight as it looked out to three other walls (an area about 1m square). Staff were generally helpful and nice, but were were very disappointed with the initial welcome... More
