Old Majestic Hotel that hasn't found it's way into the 21 Century. The location is awful with 'aggressive homeless' swarming the property despite the hotel security outside the doors. If you can get past that, let's move into the rooms, which are tiny and where my husband got multiple bites( bed bugs?) the 3rd night of our stay. On 8/28/2014... More

First off - location is horrible! Area is filled with homeless People begging for money. There were two times that I walked down the street and two men was just urinating in the middle of the side walk in broad daylight. Second thing- woke up at 3 am to find my bed cover with bed bugs! On both beds in... More

Overall, I enjoyed my stay. The hotel is clean and while the single double bed room was small, I wasn't having a party in there and for one person it is enough room. As a single woman, I felt safe in the hotel at all hours. The staff was courteous, especially Burney who greeted me. It is very close to... More

When I walked into my room at Hotel Whitcomb, I noticed a card on the night table asking “If there was one thing we could have done to make your stay more enjoyable, what would it have been?” Little did I know it would be so difficult to boil it down to just one thing! First, both my computer and... More

My husband and I booked the Hotel Whitcomb for one night to see a concert at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Perfect location. We were able to walk to the venue in less than 5 minutes. As I booked the hotel through hotwire, didn't know the name of the hotel until booked but got it for $100.00 less than other... More

This hotel looks very fancy.. it is a nice place to stay. The rooms are quite small but there only for sleeping.. the bathrooms are a bit squishy and the shower pressure is sad. 4 blocks to the shopping mall which is also close to union square. Asked front desk for room pricing and was told to go online and... More

I stopped coming to the venerable a number of years ago because of the shabby facilities and the rude personnel, but my weekend here this time was fantastic. Everything was better., Room was spacious and clean. People at the front desk could not have been nicer. Some folks are uncomfortable with the neighborhood, but the homeless people are not aggressive... More

Hotel whitecomb is a decent little hotel if you can ignore the fact it's totally got a shining vibe to it. I stayed here for a weekend during outside lands festival. The front desk staff wasn't the most polite but it definitely was a busy weekend. I never got to try the restaurant or bar as they closed much earlier... More

Sadly the first impression of the Whitcomb when you get off the nearby airport shuttle is that it has been uprooted from the 1930s and transplanted into the third world. The area is literally full of beggars, drunks, junkies, and drop outs who will not hesitate to ask you for money or shout and swear at you. Many seem to... More
