We stayed here for 4 days on our honeymoon and really enjoyed our stay. It's located right at the entrance to Chinatown, and we actually quite liked this. The China town here is really big, and quite bustling - doesn't feel quite as run down as other China town areas we have been though. You're also pretty close to Union... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights at the start of our honeymoon. Overall we had a good stay with just a few niggles (nothing major, just niggles). Firstly, the real positive was that the staff were amazing, really helpful and gave some great restaurant recommendations. When we mentioned that it was our honeymoon, they sent us a... More

Stayed here in July 2014. It was meant to be for 3 nights but we had to check-out after one night as the room and accommodation were far too small for the 2 adults, 2 children that we were trying to squeeze in there. However the hotel staff were amazingly friendly about the situation and made the transfer very easy... More

Great location . Great staff. Great hotel. Stayed last time. Stayed this time. And will stay next time. Staff is super helpful. The rooms are smallish but the location compensates . Great breakfast places on either side. A few minutes walk to union square , china town and north beach. Valet parking is super efficient. All around great value.

We chose the Hotel Triton because of its location at the heart of San Francisco and it sounded interesting and different. The hotel was really nice and a pleasant surprise. The rooms were compact but comfortable and well-maintained. We loved and made full use of the free wine happy hour. The hotel was ideally located for our visit to the... More

Just spent 4 wonderful days in San Francisco with my family. Hotel Triton was fab, all the staff were really helpful and the location was perfect. Small rooms but we knew that when we booked, four of us shared and we coped fine. Wine hour is a great bonus as is the coffee served in the morning...it was delicious. Would... More

Let me first say the service here is SUPERB -- the staff is beyond helpful and friendly; they are 5-star. In terms of the inside lobby decor, the promises of "funky" and "modern" do not disappoint. But when you get to the rooms -- you really hit old and tired. I saw two queen rooms, and stayed in one. (The... More

My partner and I stayed here in September 2012 (the 'when did you travel,' option won't allow me to select before 2013). We drove to San Fran from LA and valet took care of the parking and were very swift when retrieving it for us on our outings. The hotel itself is quite old but has been redecorated amazingly. The...

Love this hotel. I elected to stay here instead of other pricey hotels in the area because of its originality and charm. It did not disappoint. The decor in the lobby is eclectic (even has a Tarot Card reader), yet laid back and friendly. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit old, but it gives... More

My wife and I took our honeymoon to San Fran last week! Joe and Amanda at the front desk really helped us get around town. With so much to see and do you kind of need some local tips.Real cool vibe in hotel and in the middle of everything. I will come back!
