We stayed at this hotel last week. The location was good & room very clean. The weekend bar man was very good on the club level. Whilst the food was minimal at breakfast and evening it was just ok. The club floor is very run down with worn out furniture. A chain of this size should make more of its... More

Found a very favourable rate for a Saturday during a West Coast trip. Checked a parking website and found a cheap garage around the corner and then walked everywhere. Check in was quick and efficient. We were upgraded to Club Level which included a cocktail hour. The room was clean, well decorated and quiet. The staff were helpful and friendly.... More

The Prescott Hotel is centrally located downtown San Francisco. This was our second visit to this hotel. Though it is an older hotel the rooms are beautifully designed and very quiet. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. We chose an inexpensive upgrade to a suite which included a complementary wine service and breakfast.

We stayed at the Prescot for three nights. The hotel is quite old and has a warmth about it. The staff at reception are very friendly and helpful. Location is good if you would like to shop. A bit of a travel if you want to go to the Warf, Golden Gate Bridge etc.. The breakfast offered was really nice.... More

This is one great hotel with a great location just three minutes off the Union Square! We stayed there almost for a week in a club room which included breakfast and the daily wine hour (which was great, by the way!)! The room was good, a little small but enough for two. Bed was comfortable and room was quiet (facing... More

The hotel is located in a wonderful location, directly in Union Square and just steps away from everything you could ever need. From the moment I arrived, I felt completely at home. The staff was pleasant and friendly, and went above and beyond. The rooms were gorgeous, everything was pristine. The mirror on the wall actually made the room feel... More

For the past 2 years we've chosen the Prescott for our getaway. My wife is a business traveler and a "Karma Rewards" member who stays in Kimpton properties whenever she can, and this... More

Loved our stay! The staff is amazing and their little touches made us feel really special. It was our wedding anniversary and they managed to make it a very memorable one! From the delicious home made chocolate chip cookies to welcome the guests to the free upgrade to the club level. I totally recommend this hotel!

Nice older hotel with the usual Kimpton service. Very handy to Union Square. Not crazy about the mirrored wall behind the bed and requested a change. Turns out all of the rooms have mirrored walls! They did give us a bit of an upgrade but still had the mirror......

Thank you for your review. The mirrors are a a little nod to the past and possibly something we will change here in the near future but thank you for staying with us. We hope to see you again soon. More

We stayed at the Prescott between Christmas and New Year's for two nights. We could not have picked a better location for shopping in and around Union Square. It is close but quiet. It is less than a block from our favorite breakfast place, Honey Honey. They have a wonderful happy hour each night from 5-6 p.m. with wine and... More
