I always love the Triton -- quirky, funky, and fun. The staff goes the extra mile. Super pet friendly. And a little cheaper and in a nicer location that the other downtown/financial district kimptons. Of course, it's San Francisco. So, you're gonna get small rooms unless you go to a glass&steel chain hotel. But, the Triton rooms are totally comfortable... More

Triton hotel location is great for getting around San Francisco, great friendly staff, free coffee in the morning and wine at 5 pm nice touches, great design in the hotel, staff super friendly. However if you like to sleep ask the staff to move you if you are overlooking the side alleyway. The bottle bins are emptied almost every day... More

I would highly recommend staying here if your looking for something different from a standard hotel. The rooms are super funky and the location is perfect. Everyone is super friendly, definitely say hi to Scott and Amanda at the front, very friendly and accommodating. I know where I'll be staying for my San Fran trips!

A very nice boutique hotel right at the gates of China Town - very friendly and helpful staff, easy access to BART and the ferries, and tastefully decorated rooms. This is an older boutique hotel, but it is well appointed, and a very nice value. The manager wine tasting every afternoon is a very nice touch. Many restaurants very close... More

The staff was accommodating and friendly. The hotel was very clean and situated in the heart of downtown. I highly recommend this hotel. Rooms are a bit small, but that was not an issue for us, as we mostly just went back to the room to rest or sleep.

Hello Kevin28998 ~ Thanks for sharing your experience with us. We like to think of the rooms as "cozy" more than small. It's a wonderful historical building with lots of character. They just didn't build things with the amount of sq. ft. that we're used to today, that’s for sure. We hope this won't stop you from thinking of us... More
