Loved this hotel. Relaxing, comfortable, clean, nice staff and close to everything. Japantown is just across the street where you will be treated with an array of restaurants, bakeries, boutiques, etc

Response from Emily G, General Manager at Kimpton BuchananResponded yesterday

So happy you loved us, Delfin R. M! I agree that Japantown is quite charming, and then of course there's also all of Fillmore Street/Pac Heights to enjoy along our west.

Hi, there, OhFranklin, I was alarmed to see only three stars in your rating (thinking, "what did we do wrong?" etc.), but then relieved to see the rating seems to stem from the fact that you weren't around the hotel much. Next time I hope...More
