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.

Originally went for business and stayed over on the weekend. Moved from your standard hotel to the Triton which sits at the Gates of China Town. This hotel is so cool and funky.

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

I am packing up to head back home after staying 5 days at the Hotel Triton in San Francisco. I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. I would describe the hotel decor as slightly kitschy but charming nonetheless. It is certainly much, much better than a bland, boring chain hotel room. And, while the room decor may not have been...

Hello L-woodT ~ Thanks for posting your review. Some rooms are on the "cozy" side although we like to think this brings out the historical charm of the building. Let us know the next time you're in the city, we would love to welcome you back! Till then, Antonio Flores General Manager antonio.flores@hoteltriton.com More
