It's been several years since I stayed at the Prescott Hotel. It's a great location, and I generally really enjoy the Kimpton hotels for their personalized service and boutique experience. As part of their IC loyalty program, my reservation was upgraded to their new concept room, which was a delight! I understand this is an older property, and not all... More

Once you are past the reception every thing else goes down hill. The only good points are it is fairly central and the bed sheets were clean. The bad things are, The roomed smelled musty possible because the air con was dirty. The bed was soft and extremely squeaky, turn over and you woke up. The floor boards squeaked and... More

Our beds were extremely squeaky and you could hear when the other person tossed during the night. This quite unacceptable. When we told staff our phone wasn't working, nothing was done. While the service was friendly and helpful it was obvious no one wanted hear feedback. Upon check out no one asked how the stay was..... Overall clean. Great location.... More

The hotel needs a serious update to live up its name and be comparable with the other Kimpton hotels. The location is great, the staff is helpful, but the building is old in spite of the cosmetic fix. The room is small. It's awkward that I needed to change elevator, cross the club to reach my floor. The breakfast and... More

This hotel is a typical older SF hotel--historic and funky architectural features that add charm, and not much of a view (mostly looking at the sides of buildings or the rooftop HVAC system). It is very close to Union Square and lots of restaurants and theatre so its location is ideal. The front desk staff is friendly. Bikes are available... More

We spent 5 nights at the Prescott on the Club level. Our rooms were clean, but a little dated. Carpet thru out needs undated, including lobby and halls. The service at the front desk/concierge was great! Each evening we enjoyed amazing complimentary cocktails on the 4th floor (with an amazing server) with cheese/crackers/fruit, etc...The breakfast was also just right for... More

I stayed here for four nights for a conference. The hotel is shabby chic and the rooms could use an upgrade. However, the front desk staff were friendly, the room was quiet and the location couldn't be beat, walking distance to lots of shops/restaurants. The happy hour was a nice touch as well. We had forgotten a few toiletries and... More

I love the location of this Kimpton, it is close to everything. I arrived late last night and walked around the corner and found many places to eat The hotel is what I call 'old San Francisco', a bit shabby, funky hotel layout, but very clean with excellent service. The best part is that the rooms are quiet! I love... More

We stayed at the hotel for four nights during our honeymoon. The hotel staff upgraded our room with a bigger one which was very spacious, with a very nice bed and very nice bathroom. All the hotel employees were young guys who made us feel very comfortable. The hotel is in a very good spot downtown, very close to the... More
