great location found a great deal on hotels tonight its Frisco so there so much to do with in a 3 block radius. It makes you feel like your a part of San franciscos history. Also make sure to go and ask the front desk for a free upgrade
We stayed on New Year's Eve 2019/New Year's Day 2020 and had a wonderful time! The city was buzzing and the hotel was very busy but we were kindly welcomed at check-in and got a great room on an upper floor. We knew the room would be small (and it was!) but this is part of the charm of staying in a historical building and the accommodations could not have been more stylish and comfortable. There was a lovely king bed with cozy linens and a small seating area with desk. One of the main reasons we chose this hotel was the proximity to The Masonic, where we had tickets to see John Oliver that night. It was an easy walk to/from and we were able to stop into a diner on the corner for a quick bite on the way and a local bar up the street for a drink afterwards! Would definitely recommend for a centrally located option in SF with style!…
I have never stayed in a more luxurious, friendly, clean, unique, and accomodating hotel in my life. This is the hotel i compare all hotels to now. Stay at the Kimpton, you will not be disappointed. Anything you may have forgotten they will give to you. Great minibar as well.
My partner and I had the pleasure of staying here in early February. Everything from the front desk, lobby bar, and Lizzy's Starlight Lounge were wonderful. The employees were friendly and the views from Lizzy's is stunning! The room was luxurious, the bathroom was nicely updated and modern but a bit small. but understandable in San Francisco. The shower gel available in the rooms is simply heavenly! Location of the hotel is perfect and the building has a lot of history to it. It's an easy walk to the shops around Union Square and Market Street, and super easy to hop on the Cable Car to get to Fisherman's Wharf.
We were planning on travelling from Australia to the US in June, however we needed to cancel the trip due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. I spoke directly to the hotel who totally understood and refunded our deposit in full. It could have been easy for them to simply say you can have a credit to use within 12 months (like other hotels are doing) however it is very difficult for international travellers to be able to use the credit. Thank you Tony for your understanding.
Very small bathroom but the room was comfortable. I liked the wine tasting in the big lobby. Scalars restaurant in the hotel had great Italian food. I did sneak across the street at the Chancellor Hotel for their breakfast buffet. It can not be beat for $20.
Unfortunately, this stay was tinged with knowing our cruise to Hawaii on the Grand Princess had been cancelled the night before while we were still in Las Vegas! Having said that, the staff were wonderful. We were going to celebrate our Ruby Wedding on the cruise. They upgraded our room and sent us a bottle of Prosecco, fruit, cheese and toast. A lovely and much appreciated gesture. The room was not huge but was fine. We had a bath with showers over. This was fine. Toiletries provided. The bed was very comfortable. From 17.00 to 18.00 there was free wine and small pizza bites in the main foyer. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The only down side was La Scalia for breakfast. Very expensive for what as served.
This Hotel has fooled us. We had stayed in this hotel from 5th March and checked out on 9th March 2020.We were shared Wifi Password without intimation that it is chargeable and on our day of departure from the hotel, in the morning around 5:15 there was a paper on the floor with Credit of 135.08$. On further enquiry at the reception we were told that, these charges are for the WIFI which we had used in the hotel.We told the concern person that we were not informed about it prior and it is incorrect to charge without letting the customer know about it prior. I will not recommend anyone to visit this hotel where the hotel staff cheat with customers.
I love boutique Kimpton hotels generally, and this one met my expectations -- a renovated historic, quirky property. It's not a modern Hilton, so don't expect large bathrooms. Expect a friendly staff and a warm feeling. It's also only a 5 minute walk up Powell St from the BART station, so it's easy to get to. My only complaint was that the rooms are bit small (more like European standards than US), the wif-fi was awful, and they stuck a $28 "guest amenity fee" on my bill which is basically fraud. I realize everyone does it so the online price looks low, but I wish they would be honest about the final bill up front. I would have stayed there anyway. Another bonus is Lori's Diner across the street, an amazing place with great and affordable food (affordable by San Francisco standards anyway). No obvious parking, but you don't want to bring a car into SF anyway.…
Although we only booked in for 2 nights we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we found the Hotel very comfortable, clean, the room was nice, location was excellent, plenty to do, we were booked to go on a cruise but unfortunately it was cancelled due to the Coronavirus, the staff at the Hotel were excellent in helping us. In particular the concierge Mr. Lief Abram was excellent, he recommended places to go for food, amenities etc. he also he booked a boat trip round the bay for us which we thoroughly enjoyed, his overall persona was excellent, he could not do enough for us and made our stay very enjoyable, he made us feel very welcome in San Francisco and without him our stay would not have been so enjoyable.
