I read a bunch of reviews for this hotel and there were so many mixed reviews. I decided to take the chance and book it. Boy were we glad we did. Not only is this hotel just a few short blocks from Union Square it's also close to the Powell BART and main shopping locations. The hotel staff was excellent... More

We selected this hotel based on a friends recommendation who lives in the Castro. Everything was perfect including an upgrade upon arrival. The entire staff is helpful and friendly and all very fond of their fabulous city. Wine hour from 5 to 6 everyday is an added bonus!!

This hotel upholds the Kimpton tradition of boutique hotels with outstanding service. The staff is welcoming and professional. We were particularly impressed by the hotel's assistant manager who went out of his way by upgrading us to a suite for my husband's weekend birthday celebration. The room was spacious and the furnishings inviting. We were delighted by a generous welcoming... More

The Prescott is a warm and charming hotel in San Francisco with a terrific staff who is there to help. The location is great near Union Sq. The rooms are classic , large and comfortable. The Club level is my favorite. Great breakfast there. You may never want to leave.

We arrived and were booked in a standard room. There was an odor in the hall of some sort of cleaning solution.We asked to be moved and we were upgraded to club level and had a very nice stay. I would recommend the club level though. The location is great. The breakfasts were very good.

Perfect location. An older property which apparently will undergo major renovation soon. Wonderful, helpful, friendly staff. I was upgraded to a suite on the Club level because it was my birthday! Suite was comfortable and well-appointed. Very comfortable bed. Good breakfast and free afternoon bar on the Club level. All staff are very friendly and helpful.

Friendly staff and beautiful location. Great service in restaurant and at hotel. Around the corner from new Starbucks and the main shopping area is a few blocks down. We brought our pet Louie. Great Hotel. Will stay here again when in SF. We also stayed at the Kimpton Argonaut a few days before going to the Prescott. Both hotels are... More

Location is excellent for the Union Square area and for catching the BART from the airport. Free wine & beer for an hour in the evening was a bonus, plus free tea & coffee in the morning. Free wifi. Rooms are decent, very new looking, clean and quiet. I will stay here again.

We booked this hotel last minute after our original reservation fell through. I didn't know what to expect as it was one of the few hotels left at a reasonable price point on a holiday weekend. We were pleasantly surprised. The location is great. Right in Union Square which was walking distance to restaurants and bars. Less than one block... More

Not sure the direction they want to go but they need to do some updating or close doors. The bar staff were the only ones that I would give a high rating to. Service was fair and amenities were almost non existent. Front desk was less than friendly. Would not stay here again.

I was saddened to read that you didn't get the same great experience that many of our guests have come to expect from their visits here. I will make sure to share this review with the Front Desk to try to find where we missed the mark for you. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. More
