This is a beautiful hotel at a great location. Walking distance from some great restaurants and Union Square. The staff was more than accommodating and was always very friendly. Also, the room was very clean and spacious.

I love Kimpton hotels. Yes, this building shows signs of age: the bathroom door didn't close when we first arrived and yes, the floors do creak in some places. But the location is perfect, room was clean, bed very comfortable, quiet (even facing the street), all the amenities we need, and I'll take the attentive staff here over the 'cattle-car... More

The Kimpton brand needs to dump this hotel. The decor is old and tired. The furniture in my room was scratched, dented and showed signs of abuse. Drawers were tiny and didn't open/close properly. The honor bar had broken pieces inside. The wallpaper had stains, the floors creaked and were INCREDIBLY uneven (seriously, I suspect there is structural fatigue in... More

We stayed at the Prescott for 8 nights, the room was of an adequate size with a small walk-in wardrobe for clothes and storing suitcases! The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean, although there was a musty smell to it, which we noticed when we arrived but our senses must of got use to it because it... More

The staff were wonderful and accommodating. The hotel has a great location. My problem with The Prescott - for $250 a night I don't think I should have to trudge downstairs during the allotted time to get coffee, or have to call room service to get ice.

Only had to stay here one night, and I'm so happy with that. Toilet clogged with one use (though it was fixed with in 40 min) The wallpaper in the bathroom is covered in black mold. The room has a weird smell and the smoke detector was covered with a sandwich bag...... but at least the people were nice?

Mike was fantastic! We went to almost all of the recommendayions he gave us. He even told us where to go in Sonoma/Napa and Carmel. The trip was truly momentous! The entire staff was very attentive, friendly, and genuine. They enjoy their job and are great at it!

We came to San Francisco looking for a quick, romantic getaway. We got just that! I opted for a boutique hotel rather than a name brand high-rise. The only thing missing would have been a view from many floors up, but we didn't spend much time looking out the windows! The room was very spacious and included a small sitting... More

My husband and I stayed at the Prescott 3/5 through 3/8 after quickly checking out of another property in the area where he had made reservations. That hotel disappointed us in every area possible and the Prescott saved my husband's birthday celebratory trip once we talked with Joe the Assistant General Mgr. about reserving a room. Joe and the front... More

First, I love Kimpton. It always has great service, good amenities and clean, pretty well appointed rooms. The only problem with this hotel is its age. And that's just not the building. Everything inside the hotel is "well-worn". The rooms are tired, the beds are creaky, the room furniture is mid 80s, it's unfortunately just old. And, as some reviewers... More
