San Francisco in summer is not the cheapest place on earth....far far from it, but we weren't prepared to spend $500 a night on a bed so The Carriage Inn popped up on our radar. The only two things I was worried about from these reviews was the location and the noise. The place is well located at the south... More

Enjoyed my stay at the carriage and the price was good for the cleanliness/ decor/ and size of the room. This hotel would be a definite 5 of 5 if it were located in a little better/ more lively place. Not really within good walking/ stumbling distance to any good bars and pretty far from pier/ castro/ union square/ powell.... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Carriage Inn, and really it's a 4 out of 5 San Francisco option, which is a 3 out of 5 anywhere else (save for London, Paris, New York).

We stayed at this hotel for a vacation to San Francisco. My wife and I have never been to San Francisco before, and boy did we luck out with this place. It has a fantastic location in a gentrifying location of San Francisco, just 2 blocks from Market Street on 7th avenue. That intersection on Market has a BART station,... More

Coming from Europe, US 'boutique' hotels always seem a little hit-and-miss… The Carriage seems to be one of the better located mid-price hotels, with about a five minute walk to the main strip of Market Ave and maybe 15-20 minutes walk to the central shopping/ restaurants’ area. The hotel is in SOMA (South of Market) neighbourhood, which is apparently trendifying... More

The Carriage Inn is a good example of how an older and outdated hotel can be rejuvenated by being redesigned as a 'boutique' property. Previously a Best Western franchisee (see the photographs accompanying older reviews), the property has been brought to life with a subtle and inventive refurbishment. This is not strictly a boutique hotel, in that there is no... More
