Do not book this hotel if you are looking for a 4 star experience!! The restaurants are closed and so is the bar and no apology or refund provided for what was a $250 per night booking. Absolutely no mention of this on their website. We have a small double room on the "club level" and a mediocre continental breakfast... More

I stayed here for 4 nights while vacationing with my husband in SF. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean and well maintained. The bed (king) wasn't very comfortable, but we were exhausted by the end of each day so it didn't interfere with sleep. The hotel's location is convenient to the Union Sq shopping and we... More

This is a small (by American Standards) hotel in Post Street and is very well located for the shops in Union Square and for the cable car that takes you to Fisherman's Wharf. It has a comfortable old world feel about the place and plenty of character. Our room was quite small for the US but had every modern amenity.... More

We recently booked a night at a boutique hotel in the heart of Union Sqr, SF via hotwire.com. We were staying at the Prescott for a bachelorette party and the hotel was super cute and had a nice antique feel to it. At the front desk, Corey and Marie, provided us with exceptional customer service and really took care of... More

Myself and my wife stayed 4 nights in a club level room, first trip to SF as tourists, enjoyed the great location close to union square, cable car and BART stops and free wifi. Reception staff very welcoming and continental breakfast was okay, although seating for breakfast was a bit uncomfortable and inadequate for the number of guests. There are... More

Have stayed here several times this year and is my favorite hotel in SF. I always prefer Kimpton hotels whenever possible and this one is up to the mark with other Kimptons in my experience. Location is great, only 4-5 blocks from the Powell St. BART station (so easy walk with rolling luggage from the station if you fly Into... More

The hotel was perfectly located just a couple of blocks from Union Square. We stayed for 4 nights and if we were to visit... More

We stayed for 3 nights early in September. The location is excellent, a very short walk from Union Square where there are great shops and restaurants. Union Square provided good access for the cable car and some of the All Loops tours. Check in was swift and friendly, in fact all staff we met were helpful especially the concierge. We... More
