We arrive around 1pm which is earlier than the regular check in time but the check in staffs, Casey and another young man, are friendly and very helpful. Before we come, we read the reviews and worry about the noise during the night. But actuary the streets are quiet at least around 10pm when we walk from the opera house... More

Hotel was very nice, staff were very friendly & it is just 2 blocks from Union Square. So great location for shopping, restaurants & night life but about 35mins walk up (very big) hill to get to the wharf. Only problem I had was a continental breakfast was included & they had no gluten free option apart from melon! I... More

We stayed here on our first night in San Francisco. We were re-roomed from the Sir Francis Drake for the one night. The hotel were very accommodating & so friendly when we arrived. We had a lovely room, very well decorated. The room didn't over look anything, but we weren't bothered by that. As we stayed here not by choice,... More

We were there for 2 days and the hotel was clean and the room was clean. Free wifi and continental breakfast. It was nice and quiet, the location was great shopping, close to the ball park the hotel limo took us to the game.

We stayed here for a week in a 1 bedroom suite. There was a sofabed in the living room suitable for two youngsters. We had an 8 yr old and a 12 yr old so we asked for a pull out bed. It was a tight squeeze but everyone got a good nights sleep which is the main thing. This... More

I wansnt really impressed with this hotel. It was ranked as a 4 star by many sites, and in my opionion its no more than a 3 star. We arrived on July 4th. Yes every hotel was booked solid, but we dont like tight cramped rooms. Well 721 is the smallest room possible. We were not impressed at all. We... More

I was happy to see that our staff reacted just like we would expect and turn to what seemed like a bad situation to something great. Our location is steps away from all the designer shopping that is here in San Francisco and I was saddened that you were not informed of that upon your check in. This is a... More

I am an Inner Circle Member and, as such, am upgraded upon check-in and given an amenity in my room. When I checked into the Prescott, I also said the Kimpton "Social Media Phrase", which when in effect gets you an additional surprise as well. But, at the Prescott, the front desk guy was seemingly completely unprepared for this, despite... More

Dear TR45, After your departure I spoke to the new employee that handled your check in and unfortunately we failed to let him know about the summer promotional phrase. We have retrained all the agents in this as well. Thank you for letting us know where we could improve and we appreciate you staying with us. More

I love Kimpton hotels, choose them and have so far been very happy with all I have stayed in - but this one was a real disappointment. Although the staff were very good the hotel itself is tired and shabby, and well in need of refurbishment overall from lifts to decor to fittings. We stayed on the club floor, which... More

I was sorry to see that you were disappointing. We are always on the look out to freshen up the hotel and make things better. Sometimes guests want us to leave the charm alone and other want us to update it. We will surely take your comments into careful consideration as we plan our next upgrades. Thanks for the review!

I stayed here for a week while on business. Staff were courteous and friendly, and I thought the rooms were nicely sized for a city hotel. The bed was very comfy and the bathroom was clean and functional. It was an easy walk to the Muni or BART, and even an easy walk to the Embarcadero. I liked that it... More

Thanks for your review. I have read this review with our housekeeping staff to be on the lookout for damp carpets. This is not something we typically have and I must apologize for it. We do offer free internet options if you join our free Kimpton Karma program so next time if you come visit us that would be something... More

A lovely little Hotel in the heart of San Francisco. Staff were very friendly and helpful and 'Wine Appreciation Hour' each night on the fourth floor was a wonderful idea. Close to Union Square and Powell Street. Decor is a little dated and needs some updating. If you are on the 7th floor under the gym be prepared for the... More
