The location of Triton Hotel next to the Gate of China Town in San Francisco ist perfect for exploring the city. You can do many things from the Hotel just in walking distance. The Trtion is a very nicely designed chic young Hotel with an awesome friendly staff and a nice vibe. The rooms are quite small - this is... More

Hotel Kimpton has a lot going for it; location, price, friendly staff etc, there isn't much to fault in this 3 star hotel. Short walk to Union Square, Ferry building and close to lots of bus routes. You can get the cable car easily to fisherman wharf area on Powell street. Our room faces the street on the second floor... More

I arrived at 9:15 on a Sunday evening. The Desk staff was wonderfully helpful. I commented that I was sorry to have missed the wine reception, and one of the staff got me a glass of wine! It was a brilliant move because now one hand was busy with a glass so that I needed assistance getting to my room.... More

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

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
