“Great location, good service, fine rooms. Pricey (not surprising in SFO!), but fair value for money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

I stayed three nights at the Taj Campton after spending the weekend at the Mandarin Oriental. Though certainly not as luxurious, as days went by I liked it better than the MO.

Location is excellent, right on Union Square. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed (bathroom not very well lit, in my opinion). Service is good, it caters an excellent upscale, renowned restaurant and a very nice bar / bistro which provide it with a local feel.

Just for fun, Luke Perry and Phillip Phillips were tying at the hotel at the same time I did.

Pricey as most SFO hotels, though not as steep at the MO. I think it delivers decent value for money.

We had reserved this hotel for a few night. The service was very good , the room although completely refurbished look a little too classy for us, as we prefer more modern features and furnitures. Nevertheless we have no formal critic to suggest, Just an expensive well located hotel.

Room Tip: Close to all shopping activities and Union Square with access to the very close cable cars. choose a...

Not as good as advertised. The rooms are tiny or small at best. Staff is great, but some services (Hotels Town car) were never available. Breakfast was amazingly good. But beeing a LH the standard is at least a little bit higher than what the Taj Campton Place provides.

I didn't like the receptionist who made our check in. She denied an early check in to my wife and our 2 years old daughter at 14 o'clock, while I was away. She said our room would be ready only at 16 o'clock, but the regular check in hour was 15 o'clock. When I arrived at the hotel, at 16 o'clock, this recepcionist was not working anymore and I talked to a colleague, who apologized and gave us the room immediately.
But I had the worst impression with this unpolite recepcionist who denied the room. She is the only recepcionist in the morning shift who doesn't wear a badge with her name. So curious...
And the wifi internet is very slow and they charge US$ 12,50 per use/day.
The good side is that bed and pillows are superb, although the California King Suite is not very large. The bathroom is really large, the shower is excellent, the towels are new and very soft and the amenities are high quality.
The doorman and the bellboy are very polite.

Dear Andre,

Thank you for your feedback about your check-in experience. I cannot tell you how sorry I was to read of your trial in trying to have access your room, especially with a small child. You may rest assured our manager has investigated and counseled that receptionist on our standards of hospitality. I was so happy to read that this unfortunate experience did not detract from the rest of your visit and that you were generally very satisfied with your room, its amenities and the others of our staff with whom you dealt. Again, thank you for letting us know about your stay.

Regards,
General Manager

It's been a while since my last stay & I'm happy to say it's still as wonderful as ever. I love staying here! It's so COMFORTABLE. The rooms are great and the whole place has a really relaxed charm. The staff & service is so warm, friendly and helpful. Location is just perfect too. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when in San Francisco.

Nice hotel. As smart and clean as you would expect from the Taj chain. Staff polite and helpful.

Only downside - valet parking extortionate (even by San Francisco standards) and all the electrics failed in the bathroom one morning, which meant showering and trying to walk on the now-ice-rink-like marble floor in the dark. Problem immediately fixed when mentioned though!
