San Francisco is known for its style and sophistication. So it takes an exceptional hotel to stand out. With its sleek urban lines, distinctive design and prime location at the intersection of three of San Francisco's best neighborhoods, it's easy to see why Kimpton Buchanan has an attraction all its own. Surrounded by the designer shops, local boutiques, foodie-fave restaurants and live music venues, Kimpton Buchanan also puts you minutes from other top attractions like Union Square and Golden Gate Park. Pair it all with our spacious, artfully imagined accommodations and yes-we-can staff, and you have the makings of the ultimate San Francisco stay.

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 hotel.

"Tis is a boutique hotel. It is somewhat distant from the Wharf Area. However, bus stops are opposite the hotel and very convenient."
"The room seemed a bit dusty, maybe it was the pillows. Room was ready for new mattresses, both were uneven and squishy."
