The hotel has a lot of quirky rooms, but the king room on the club level was a good accommodation. No view to speak of, but the continental breakfast was very good. Always nice service touches -- it was chilly and they served hot chocolate (with or without tequila) in the lobby. We arrived too late for the club level... More

You are right, being a smaller hotel with amazing staff makes the difference and that is why we are so special. Thank you for the great review and we hope to see you again soon. More

We enjoyed staying in this classic and charming hotel whilst attending a conference in the city. We found it conveniently located. The staff were well mannered and were so very helpful with any questions we had. The hosted evening hour was a delight and we looked forward to this time with its opportunity to meet new people and some also... More

The Prescott is one of a number of small, older hotels in the general vicinity of Union Square that really distinguish the San Francisco market. I would call it comparable to the two other other hotels of its size I have stayed in there, and clearly superior to the more large, chain-formula hotels in the neighborhood. Staff was very friendly... More

I have to state up front that I love this hotel. I've stayed here three times and enjoy it more on every visit. It is at the same time modern and classic. Of course, this is an older property, but it is attentively and respectfully well maintained; always clean, always bright. I understand that a remodeling is planned, but I... More

In a charming 100 years old building, this hotel is very well located. All the staff is genuine. They mean it when they say how are you, how can I help you. Free bicycles that workwell anf look good are a nice bonus and free ice tea and lemon water are a nice touch. Great breakfast place west on the... More

The hotel is located in downtown which is not a good thing. The surrounding areas feel run down and not safe. The hotel itself is ok and the evening free glass of wine is a nice touch. The biggest problem is you can not get even a coffee in here in the morning as they do not have the facilities... More

I was saddened to read that you didn't like to great location that we are in. We are just steps away from all the best restaurants, designer shopping and the main hub for transportation. Next time you come to town we will make sure to also show you our great coffee station we have free for our guests. Thank you... More

Full disclosure: I booked this hotel for my husband's birthday weekend and noted that in my reservation...they upgraded us to the penthouse suite (AH-MA-ZING) and had champagne on ice and chocolate strawberries with a note in the room! So, yes, a bit biased for the personal attention and the crazy room, but I am always happy with Kimpton so that's... More

Stayed here a night for business, the staff were really friendly and the room was on the small fine but adequate for a couple. There is no bar in the hotel (that I found anyway) and there is coffee available in the morning. Location is very close to Union Square so its ideal for shopping / restaurants. I had no... More

Thank you for sharing your experience and impressions. Sadly we did close the door to our bar so we can re launch a brand new concept in that space. In the meantime we hope you had a chance to check out our complimentary Wine Hour everyday from 5pm-6pm or maybe stop by for a Nightcap from 8:30-9:30pm. We hope you... More

This is a decent hotel within walking distance of Union Square and other attractions. Great bars/restaurants nearby. Lobby is nice with doorman and valet. The staff is extremely attentive and courteous. The room and bathroom we had was quite small but adequate. We have stayed in many hotels in downtown San Francisco and have enjoyed them all. We usually look... More

So you're headed to San Francisco. There are so many hotels to choose from! You're reading this and probably deciding between the Prescott and a few others. One day, you should choose the Prescott. But not today. You'll see in the reviews below that there is an overhaul about to happen at this hotel. Give it a try once they... More
