My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in May at the start of our California road trip holiday and at the Santa Barbara Kimpton Canary at the end of our trip. We looked at lots of hotels before booking this one and we were very happy with our choice. The location is great, right next to China town and just a stones throw from Union Square and trams that take you to Pier 39.
The welcome that we got upon arrival was lovely and friendly, our room, although small was spotlessly clean , wonderfully decorated and had clean fluffy towels, bathrobes, a king sized bed with soft and clean sheets and pillows, the room is so well stocked with everything that you could possibly need.
There are plenty of near by cafes and bars and restaurants to choose from.
Yes, there are a few noise issues but not through any fault of the hotel. Its a city, what do you expect, take ear plugs!
We spent a very happy and comfy 4 days here and can highly recommend.
Just one small thing that The Kimpton people need to note.....some British travellers do like their tea. You offer a wonderful service each morning of free tea and coffee but your English breakfast tea, although a lovely brand by the looks of it is grim! We went to Starbucks every day to get our tea because yours was so yuk! We had to do the same at your hotel in Santa Barbara. Please change the tea bags for next time we stay because we think your hotels are great. x
