My wife and I stayed here for three nights in December ‘12. The Prescott is a boutique hotel in the Kimpton Collection, and is very conveniently located just a short distance from Union Square and the Powell Street Cable Car line. Hotel parking is valet only and is rather pricey ($44 per day) but there are a number of parking garages in the area that offer more reasonable options. The small but attractive lobby opens on one side to a very comfortable lounge area and to Wolfgang Puck’s Postrio bar/restaurant on the other. The lounge area is where complementary wine is served each afternoon, a nice touch.
Our room (#601) was a standard king, very attractively furnished in a traditional style. The room was good sized and well appointed with two night stands, an bureau with plenty of drawer space, a lockable mini bar ($10 credit if you are a Kimpton Club member) with small fridge, a built-in desk, and a fair sized built-in closet with room safe. The a.c. was quiet and effective. A minor complaint was that the bed was a bit too soft for our tastes and the pillows too hard. The bathroom was large and attractive, with adequate counter space. There was a shower/tub combo.
All in all we recommend the Prescott and would likely stay there again. The location, the excellent friendly service, and the reasonable (for SF) cost make it a very good choice for downtown San Francisco.
