If you wish to be slightly outside the busy downtown, this is a really nice hotel. My room was spacious, well maintained with an excellent view (8th Floor). It is a neighborhood so the area may not feel exactly what you may think SF feels...More
The location was somewhat inconvenient. The desk staff ranged from very good to barely knowledgeable. The connected but private restaurant was marginal at best, expensive with basic offerings. This is a low end Kimpton. We had a very noisy room air conditioner that caused a...More

Hi, Cheryl H. Thanks for staying with us and sharing your feedback. I believe you are the same guest who submitted a survey earlier in the week regarding an HVAC unit, though it would be great if you could please drop me a line when...More
This is a great hotel. The rooms were very spacious for San Francisco and they even had double rooms with queen beds (hard to find). They are very pet friendly and don't charge anything extra to bring your dog with you which is very rare...More
Please read full review: Good location, clean amenities, but terrible customer service in terms of cancelling. Hence I gave 1 star for experience but 5 stars for the actual hotel.
I have been to the buchanon about 7 years ago. This time around, I booked...More

Hi, Josh C, and thanks for revising your review. I'm happy to see that when you rebooked with us for the remaining nights of the UCSF conference, the stay in your 7th floor room was fantastic. Given that, and the fact that you mention the...More
If you crave a stay away from the hustle and bustle of the City, then the Buchanan is for you. Explore Japan town, the Richmond, and surrounding areas. Excellent restaurants all walking distance. At night, nice and quiet. Top it off with nice staff.

Looks like the street the hotel is on (Sutter St) will be closed to traffic. If possible, ask yr shuttle driver to drop you off at either Laguna/Sutter or Bush/Buchanan. Either location will have you a block away from the... More

If you are looking for the hotel itself to provide festivities, I would look elsewhere. This is a nice property in a great neighborhood, but they are more like a serviced residence than a full-service hotel (e.g., no room service, the restaurant on site is not managed by the Kimpton group, etc). It is a wonderful base from which to explore the neighborhood, but I cannot imagine them independently providing any Xmas activities. Even the neighborhood is not exactly holiday themed. You would honestly be better off somewhere in our near Union Square for Xmas if you want the whole holiday spirit, decorated shops, lighted tree, bustling with shoppers kind of experience.
