This hotel is in a really good location. 10 minute maximum walk to the Main Street, Westfield shopping Centre and Union Square. We also walked back from Pier 39 and Fishermans Wharf. Took about 30 minutes but was worth it as saw lots of iconic streets and walked through Chinatown. Staff are really good at this hotel, friendly, welcoming and...

Our stay at Hotel Triton was absolutely excellent! Ryan, who greeted us at the front desk and checked us in was fantastic in his accommodation for us. He was very helpful and when our original room was not available, he accommodated that very graciously and generously! We really appreciated Ryan's great help, and we absolutely loved our stay in Hotel...

Recently stayed with my wife and unsure of where to stay in San Francisco. Decided to be close to Union Square and chose the Triton. Chose right !! Just 2 blocks from Union Square and next door to Chinatown and easy walking to all the main shops and a $10 cab ride to Pier 39 and the harbour area. Reception...

Although the service was very good and willing we were greeted by a lady in a sloppy woollen cardigan and we thought this was not very professional although she was very obliging. The room is small but we got used to it as the location made up for it. It was a very expensive hotel for us from NZ and...

This is a fun hotel, the decor is bright and yet literary - we were pleased to see books by Jack Kerouac and Armistead Maupin in the room. There was no view from our room but that wasn't a problem. The room was clean and had a mini bar, we were told to feel free to take out the cans...

Not worth it for $250, not worth it for $150. The rooms smelled like old cheap perfume unless I ran the AC, and then it just smelled like another ambiguously weirdly smell. Room was kinda beaten up -- paint faded or peeling, weird scratches on the desk, etc. Mattress was suuuper cheap and the pillows were thin, which was the...

Hotel is unique in decor and the staff is five star. Ever so accommodating! Being an older property I thought the internal noises might be distracting when sleeping - not the case! The hop-on-off bus stop is by the front door.

What more could I ask for - great rate, wonderful staff, great food from the bistro, in the heart of everything and a sweet room with fascinating focus on the history and power of San Fran's beat generation - wall paper of Kerouac's On the Road (and the original manuscript on the bedside table with Ginsberg's Howl.

Nice hotel in the middle of everything. The place next door has pretty good food. Being an older building, it has things like working windows and window units for air conditioning. The staff is very nice and accommodating. Overall a great place to stay for reasonable rates.

I would highly recommend the Hotel Triton. Very friendly service, nothing was a bother to the reception attendants and the hotel rooms were clean, bright, classy and close to everything central in SF.
