“CLUB LEVEL KING - A VERY GOOD ARRANGEMENT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

The hotel has a lot of quirky rooms, but the king room on the club level was a good accommodation. No view to speak of, but the continental breakfast was very good. Always nice service touches -- it was chilly and they served hot chocolate (with or without tequila) in the lobby. We arrived too late for the club level reception but the attendant still accommodated us with glasses of wine. Parking is expensive -- forget the car and use Uber!

You are right, being a smaller hotel with amazing staff makes the difference and that is why we are so special. Thank you for the great review and we hope to see you again soon.

We enjoyed staying in this classic and charming hotel whilst attending a conference in the city. We found it conveniently located. The staff were well mannered and were so very helpful with any questions we had. The hosted evening hour was a delight and we looked forward to this time with its opportunity to meet new people and some also attending the same conference, allowing a more relaxed time together in a lovely environment. A restaurant facility in the hotel was not available at the time but this would have enhanced our stay even more. Thank you

The Prescott is one of a number of small, older hotels in the general vicinity of Union Square that really distinguish the San Francisco market. I would call it comparable to the two other other hotels of its size I have stayed in there, and clearly superior to the more large, chain-formula hotels in the neighborhood. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Just about everything is in easy walking distance.

Room Tip: My colleague had a room overlooking the street which he said was somewhat noisy, but I did not notic...

I have to state up front that I love this hotel. I've stayed here three times and enjoy it more on every visit. It is at the same time modern and classic. Of course, this is an older property, but it is attentively and respectfully well maintained; always clean, always bright. I understand that a remodeling is planned, but I hope they don't change too much.

As with all Kimpton hotels, it's always the staff that makes the difference. I'd especially like to thank Adam at the front desk, Charlie for help with late night pizza, and Jonathan for all his multitasking duties, being friendly and professional through it all.

They've finally closed the dreadful Postrio restaurant and I can't wait to see what they have planned next for that great space.

You really can't beat the location, excellent for walking but also easy access to MUNI or BART.

Looking forward to coming back this summer!

Green Features: Very happy to be at a hotel with enviromental awareness. Recycling receptacles in every room, recyclable cups, napkins, etc at morning coffee...great job.

In a charming 100 years old building, this hotel is very well located. All the staff is genuine. They mean it when they say how are you, how can I help you. Free bicycles that workwell anf look good are a nice bonus and free ice tea and lemon water are a nice touch. Great breakfast place west on the street corner and great sushi resto just 100 feet further.

The hotel is located in downtown which is not a good thing. The surrounding areas feel run down and not safe. The hotel itself is ok and the evening free glass of wine is a nice touch. The biggest problem is you can not get even a coffee in here in the morning as they do not have the facilities and I am not talking aboit the cattle in room. Also the hotel parking option is very expensive. We arrived late so decided to park on the street as it was free after 18. The hotel staff however tried to tell us otherewise despite the meter stateing clearly that it was free.

I was saddened to read that you didn't like to great location that we are in. We are just steps away from all the best restaurants, designer shopping and the main hub for transportation. Next time you come to town we will make sure to also show you our great coffee station we have free for our guests. Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again.

Full disclosure: I booked this hotel for my husband's birthday weekend and noted that in my reservation...they upgraded us to the penthouse suite (AH-MA-ZING) and had champagne on ice and chocolate strawberries with a note in the room! So, yes, a bit biased for the personal attention and the crazy room, but I am always happy with Kimpton so that's why I keep booking with them. The penthouse even has a private roof top garden!! One thing that would have made it better would be if someone had actually shown us the suite - we didn't discover the garden until the morning!

This is PERFECT for a weekend in SF for theatre and shopping: 3 blocks from the theatres and from Union Square.

Because of the upgrade we didn't have a regular room, and got to have the club level happy hour and breakfast (continental + cereal). I love Kimptons for their service, unique properties and free happy hours!

Room Tip: Sign up for the Kimpton club - it's free and you always get free wifi and a $10 'raid the mi...
