We stayed at The Kensington Park Hotel on the third leg of our U.S trip.
We were originally given a room on the ground floor to the front of the hotel, but we were offered an upgraded room for $20 per night which we were glad we did.
Our room was to the rear of the hotel and had a lovely view of San Francisco's skyline and lovely and quiet. The room was spacious and immaculately clean, with a very comfortable double bed which was the best night's sleep we'd had in ages plus there was a IPod dock alarm clock which was a nice added feature.
The room also had complimentary tea/coffee and free WiFi which is rare in the U.S.
The bathroom was spotlessly clean with plenty of fresh towels and complimentary toiletries.
The staff were brilliant and a credit to the hotel, they were very polite, helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Bob the concierge was very knowledgeable and jovial. My partner's luggage was delayed in Las Vegas and the staff were so helpful and allowed us to use their telephone, they even helped chase it with Virgin Airlines and took receipt of it when it arrived.
There was also free tea and sherry in the afternoons, which was a bit odd but a nice touch all the same (not really a sherry drinker). The horse statue in the lobby is something to behold and a great photo opportunity.
The hotel is ideally situated near Union Square with Powell Street just around the corner so you can catch the cable car quickly and easily.
I highly recommend The Kensington Park Hotel. The staff, hotel and location are amazing and I cannot understand the 3 star rating on Trip Advisor; I've stayed in 4 star hotels that weren't a patch on the KPH.
KPH is excellent value for money, what more can you ask for.
