The Whitcomb is a quick and easy trip from the airport on BART. The BART station is half a block from the hotel. Stepping into the hotel was a delightful step back in time. A bright, marble entrance foyer with crystal chandeliers led into the tall, dark, formal lobby - square marble columns rose to the carved wood in the... More

We stayed here for three nights during October. This is a really lovely old hotel in a fairly good location. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The beds are very comfortable. The only issue we had with the rooms was the lack of water pressure. It took ages to wash your hair! The location is good, the tram stop... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night while in SF for a concert. Our room view was fantastic (Orpheum theater and market st) and the room was small-ish, but clean and nice. The bed was nice, the sheets were of good quality, and the service was good. I enjoyed staying at the Hotel Whitcomb, and would stay there... More

Convenient location and you can get around on the buses and trams very easily .You can get the underground from the airport with out changing and the stop you need 'civic centre' is just near the hotel. The hotel itself is very dated and old fashioned but was quite comfortable with free wifi. There is a Starbucks attached to hotel... More

Me and my girlfriend had a great experience at the Hotel Whitcomb. The building is a former San Francisco City Hall with a grand lobby and characterful rooms. The room was clean, the staff friendly, and the bar/restaurant downstairs was wonderful. The hotel is also located just next to a metro station and on a trolley line, meaning it's easy... More

I've stayed here twice already and this is my third visit. Each time the staff has been more than friendly and courteous to me. They will try to help you with whatever issue you may have. The rooms provide all the amenities I expect from a hotel and fairly decent sized. They are also well maintained and clean, especially for... More

Stayed here for 10 days in November. My partner's mobility is challenged, so we took a room with accommodations. It was 45 feet long by 15 wide, with a San Francisco view that looked like Europe. A walk in shower with many grab bars. A bit short on comfy chairs, but it was made comfortable for a wheelchair. The building... More

This is a great value given it's central location - right above a BART station and with easy access to the whole city. The hotel is older, but this style old gives it charm as you walk through the dark hallways with wall to wall mirrors. The staff was rather cold and unfriendly though, which was the only detraction from... More

The room was pretty small, but the mattress and bathroom were immaculate. A very central location, easy walking to downtown and some of the cooler areas around. It is in a kinda sketchy area of town, but it's also literally 20 steps from a tram/bus stop and a MUNI subway stop, so you can get bus through any parts that... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here last week for two nights. We booked the small room so that we could spend more money on other things for the weekend. I saw before I went that there were some negative reviews of the hotel posted online. I was a little worried by them but decided to take a chance anyway. I... More
