Great location, just next to Union square. Hotel is nice but a bit rusty. Rooms are tiny. Gym is not open 24/7 as it should. The room key will only start operating at 6 am. But staff are friendly and they offer a welcome wine at 5 pm every day

I stay here as much as possible when I travel to San Francisco. The hotel is good - the suites are large and comfortable. Like all Kimptons, they have coffee in the morning and a wine hour. (Bonus - they also do a night cap later in the evening!) It's also close to the BART/MUNI, which is great for getting... More

I booked this through my credit card company's "Luxury hotel collection." It was advertised as free breakfast, and free upgrades as available. The free breakfast was a poor continental breakfast with not enough seating and constantly running out of food. There wasn't even sugar for the coffee. There was only one working elevator and one bellman, so it took 30... More

I've stayed at Prescott Hotel last March and in my opinion it was a good choice! Good location, very close to the Downtown attractions, like Union Square, the cable car station and a lot of bars and restaurants. Also walking distance to the Moscone Convention Center. The staff, in general, was very corteous, friendly and efficient! The room was big... More

We booked the hotel through a bidding service so I did not know what we were getting. I was worried based on some of the reviews. I will say I was presently surprised. It was like staying at a bed and breakfast in the middle of the city. The photos do not do this place justice. Everybody genuinely wants to... More

This is a well positioned (just off Union Square) hotel. Not the swankiest, but the staff and the little extras such as "Happy Hour" more than make up for it. All of the staff are great, really there to assist their guests, but a special "Thank You" to Jonathon for his help in sorting out our car hire. We spent... More

I am usually a big fan of Kimpton hotels. However, I am not a big fan of this one. Basically, it is in need of a major renovation. While I realized it is an old building, some things just need to be replaced. The carpet is old and dingy looking. One of the elevators was out of service during my... More

A very nice small hotel. Rooms are comfortable if on the small side. Very clean and well kept although the renovations they have planned for the fall will be welcome. But the staff is the real standout: always helpful and relentlessly cheerful! The perks with the Kimpton membership program are nice, including free internet. Also, while parking is expensive all...
