This Kimpton property occupies most of two adjacent buildings near Union Square. The staff is well trained and very friendly. The rooms on the club level floors are adequate size and in decet shape. The club floors' complimentary the breakfast and happy hour fare are also adequate. The buildings are old, so Kimpton needs to do a more frequent refresh... More

We have stayed here a couple times in the past. We were very happy to hear that they will be closing down in 2015 for a major rennovation. First the positive, great location and the staff is very friendly and helpful and provide wonderful service. Negative... the bed was hard, curtains wouldn't pull open, rickety glass shelf in the shower... More

The staff had the wonderful Kimpton attitude, but the accommodations are quite small and quite basic. The location is great. We had a queen bed room and didn't quite have room to unpack. I appreciate the historic character of the hotel, but it's not quite as posh as most other Kimptons.

I'll start by saying this isn't the type of hotel I'd normally pick (it was for a work function). I've stayed in a number of historic/charming hotels and many of them seem to be more run down than elegant. The Prescott is exactly that in my opinion. Many of the doors don't fit well and there's a lot of chipped... More

I visited the hotel and it was a nice experience. My room is leaking but the hotel offers me to stay in another hotel for free, which is nice. The room is also nice. The building is a bit older, and the elevator is shaking.

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, providing easy access to many tourist activities. They have complimentary bikes for guests that are great to use around the city. The rooms were very clean and sufficiently updated. We were a little concerned about the room condition because the building is 100 years old BUT you could... More

Right off Union Square, this location is perfect for shopping, restaurants and access to everything. All of the staff are friendly, helpful and charming. Adam, Gabrielle, Bethany, Jonathan and Manny, thank you for helping to make our stay a good one. I know that I have not mentioned everyone by name, but thank you anyway. The rooms are not huge,...

I was here for a 3 day offsite for work, so I spent a lot of time in the space. On the upside - the hotel has a great location, close to shopping and great places to eat, the staff was very nice and helpful! The food we had at our meeting was great - fresh and delicious! Now for... More

Pros: - I was fortunate to be able to check in early. Rooms/bathrooms are clean. - Within walking distance from Powell BART. $8.65/way to/from SFO. - Close to many key yelp-approved eateries around Union Square. I ventured out around 11pm for some late night munchies and felt safe. Many late night options around. - What makes this hotel unique is... More
