I have to state up front that I love this hotel. I've stayed here three times and enjoy it more on every visit. It is at the same time modern and classic. Of course, this is an older property, but it is attentively and respectfully well maintained; always clean, always bright. I understand that a remodeling is planned, but I... More

In a charming 100 years old building, this hotel is very well located. All the staff is genuine. They mean it when they say how are you, how can I help you. Free bicycles that workwell anf look good are a nice bonus and free ice tea and lemon water are a nice touch. Great breakfast place west on the... More

The hotel is located in downtown which is not a good thing. The surrounding areas feel run down and not safe. The hotel itself is ok and the evening free glass of wine is a nice touch. The biggest problem is you can not get even a coffee in here in the morning as they do not have the facilities... More

Full disclosure: I booked this hotel for my husband's birthday weekend and noted that in my reservation...they upgraded us to the penthouse suite (AH-MA-ZING) and had champagne on ice and chocolate strawberries with a note in the room! So, yes, a bit biased for the personal attention and the crazy room, but I am always happy with Kimpton so that's... More

Stayed here a night for business, the staff were really friendly and the room was on the small fine but adequate for a couple. There is no bar in the hotel (that I found anyway) and there is coffee available in the morning. Location is very close to Union Square so its ideal for shopping / restaurants. I had no... More

Thank you for sharing your experience and impressions. Sadly we did close the door to our bar so we can re launch a brand new concept in that space. In the meantime we hope you had a chance to check out our complimentary Wine Hour everyday from 5pm-6pm or maybe stop by for a Nightcap from 8:30-9:30pm. We hope you... More

This is a decent hotel within walking distance of Union Square and other attractions. Great bars/restaurants nearby. Lobby is nice with doorman and valet. The staff is extremely attentive and courteous. The room and bathroom we had was quite small but adequate. We have stayed in many hotels in downtown San Francisco and have enjoyed them all. We usually look... More

Thanks for sharing with the world about our hotel's wonderful staff and ideal location. It can get difficult to focus on work around here when there is so much do do right outside our front door. We would love to have you back and put on the charm. More

So you're headed to San Francisco. There are so many hotels to choose from! You're reading this and probably deciding between the Prescott and a few others. One day, you should choose the Prescott. But not today. You'll see in the reviews below that there is an overhaul about to happen at this hotel. Give it a try once they... More

I was a little bit dissapointed from the first view during my stay in this hotel on business trip. It seemed to me quite dark, old fashion furniture in the small room, smell of the old furniture, a lot of misleading halls and stairs. But step by step I have changed my mind. First, the staff was very kind and... More

A warm and sunny weekend in San Francisco! 100% true! Also 100% true: Very comfy bed, wonderful 'beloved-old-building' feel with great wooden molding details. Staff was great, genuinely friendly & neatly dressed, the concierge gave us great recommendations for nearby areas to find the 'better' restaurants. I came with a group, we had 4 rooms - the ladies in one... More

We booked two rooms here on a Saturday night in late March to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday. I know how great Kimptons are, and I figured they'd put a little something special in her room, but I was stunned when I arrived and a smiling front desk clerk whispered to me that they'd upgraded us to two penthouse suites...
