Pros: The reception and service here was great. Everybody was extremely friendly and helpful. The staff here is great! Got upgraded to a King Suite. For a suite it is a bit small, but better than your average SF basic room. Bed was pretty comfortable. The happy hour was great. Nice touch. Location, Location, location!! Literally 2 blocks away from... More

Stayed for a few days this week - what a great place to stay in San Francisco. So close to great shopping and the cable cars. Loved the character of the hotel - especially the charming lounge to rest up in at the end of a long day. My room was wonderful and the comfy bed made for good nights... More

Great European type hotel located two blocks from Union Square. Very friendly hotel staff who called us by name on the first day. We stayed on the club level and took advantage of the open bar and morning breakfast - both included in the price. Basic breakfast but fillinf If you are traveling with a dog(s), no matter how big,... More

We usually don't rent a car when we come to San Francisco, but this time we had to go to several meetings before spending the night downtown SF. When we were leaving to go to the airport and the valet brought the car, we immediately noticed a dent that was not there when we dropped the car off. We had... More

I am so sorry that our Contracted Valet company let you down. I will make sure that I reach out to someone over at the garage first thing this morning. This is something that never happens here so I will make sure that this is an isolated issue. Thanks for bringing so I can bring this up with the garage... More

The stay was great, there was also a breakfast, although basic but enough to start the day. The location is great, just one block away from Union Square. There is free wifi, and you can also use one of the free bicycles of the hotel if you want to drive a bit around. The rooms are also clean, will take... More

We spent four nights at The Prescott Hotel on Post St. (Two blocks off of Union Square), and could not have been more delighted with everything about the stay. The location was perfect for getting to all of our San Francisco city destinations by foot. Our room was large and well appointed with trademark amenities like cozy animal print robes,... More

I just stayed for six nights at the Prescott. I would have rated the experience a bit lower, but understand that it is about to be renovated starting soon, and that should address the ways in which the hotel seems a bit tired. However, they reflected this in the rate offered, which was almost 50% less than comparable hotels of... More

My partner and I visited San Francisco for holidays and as you can see from my previous reviews I have stayed at the Prescott on several occasions in the last 5 years and loved it.
