The Prescott is a warm and charming hotel in San Francisco with a terrific staff who is there to help. The location is great near Union Sq. The rooms are classic , large and comfortable. The Club level is my favorite. Great breakfast there. You may never want to leave.

We arrived and were booked in a standard room. There was an odor in the hall of some sort of cleaning solution.We asked to be moved and we were upgraded to club level and had a very nice stay. I would recommend the club level though. The location is great. The breakfasts were very good.

Perfect location. An older property which apparently will undergo major renovation soon. Wonderful, helpful, friendly staff. I was upgraded to a suite on the Club level because it was my birthday! Suite was comfortable and well-appointed. Very comfortable bed. Good breakfast and free afternoon bar on the Club level. All staff are very friendly and helpful.

Location is excellent for the Union Square area and for catching the BART from the airport. Free wine & beer for an hour in the evening was a bonus, plus free tea & coffee in the morning. Free wifi. Rooms are decent, very new looking, clean and quiet. I will stay here again.

We booked this hotel last minute after our original reservation fell through. I didn't know what to expect as it was one of the few hotels left at a reasonable price point on a holiday weekend. We were pleasantly surprised. The location is great. Right in Union Square which was walking distance to restaurants and bars. Less than one block... More

Not sure the direction they want to go but they need to do some updating or close doors. The bar staff were the only ones that I would give a high rating to. Service was fair and amenities were almost non existent. Front desk was less than friendly. Would not stay here again.

I will make sure to share this review with the Front Desk to try to find where we missed the mark for you. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. More

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

Thank you for staying with us. The renovation is kinda being kept quiet and we share that information with a limited number of guests but now that it is out there... This place is going to be amazing and we couldn't be more excited. Our staff is key and they truly love what they do and that makes me happy... 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.

Our staff is truly amazing. It is tough sometimes to find the right Kimptonites but when you get it right its something amazing. I am proud to say we have gotten it right. Thank you for noticing and we hope to see you again. More

Staying in Union Square

Neighborhood Profile
Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.
