My wife and I enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel, it has a nice feel to it. The restaurant is obviously very popular and the food is generally good. The staff are friendly in the main and the location of the hotel near to Pier One is very convenient. However the bedroom we were assigned, oh dear what a disappointment,... More

While the rooms are rather small and some of the rooms face a wall, we very much enjoyed our one night stay at Hotel Griffon. The bed was soft and comfortable and the rest of the hotel and grounds are open and inviting. The Ferry Building is right around the corner and it is only a short walk to the... More

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

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
