Boutique hotel with great personal service, great location(across st. from embarcadero & Ferry Building. Perry's was great with no hassle of searching on a sat. nite. Would absolutely stay there again. One of the cleaning staff proudly stated that she has been there 20 some years!

The hotel was nice and provided everything we needed. Pros - Nice clean room, easy access to the Embarcadero, comfy bed and pillows, in room tea and coffee, turn down service Cons - Slow elevator, room we got would be better for one person rather than two, there was a window in our room, but we looked directly at a...

I would recommend this motel for anyone that wants to be close to the Down Town, the Cable Cars, Public Transport and the fine dining of Ferry Building number 3. It's only a 5 minute walk from your motel to any of the above. - Tram F will get to Fishermans Wharf for $2.25 - Bart train will get you... More

Hotel is in a good location, directly across from ferry building. Despite being older it had everything you could need, staff was super friendly. Room was very clean. It did have a slight odor that could be age or being directly across from the bay. Overall for the price and location we would stay again.

We booked to stay for three nights in a double standard room, it was a bit on the small side but very clean room and bathroom. Great location, a two minute walk round the corner and you're next to the water. Very polite and helpful reception staff. Thanks for having us!

If you are looking for an accommodation in San Francisco, you will quickly notice that everything (!!!) is very expensive, this hotel is no exception. And unfortunately the only justification for such a high price is that it is located in SF, otherwise it is a very average hotel with no breakfast or parking included. Rooms are tiny and at... More

Great old buildings make for great hotels. We loved the charm at the Griffon - with its smaller rooms, exposed brick, quaint elevator and excellent location. We easily walked to a comedy club, the Farmers Market, and breakfast. And we ate dinner at Perry's restaurant. It's just off the lobby and equally excellent. Breakfast at the hotel is whole, fresh...

We decided to stay over night for the 7/4 firework at Pier 39. All the hotels close by are very expensive. Luckily, we found Hotel Griffon. This hotel is right within all the attractions near the piers. It is clean and classic. It has a very nice window seat (with no view though). We parked our car and walked to... More

Mixed feelings about this place. Both the elevator and the room were small. The layout of the room was awkward, having the sink and mirror in the room next to the bed and the toilet and shower in the bathroom. Our window faced a wall so it felt a little like being in a closet. They did have a very... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
