Hotel Griffon - A Greystone Hotel
Ranked #22 of 230 Hotels in San Francisco
Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeadersSilver level
Reviewed August 5, 2005

I stayed at this hotel on business overnight. Overall, I had a nice stay, though this hotel is a bit quirky. I was booked into room 411. This room features a queen size bed and small couch in an L shaped room. There are nice amenities such as bathrobes, nice sheets, nice toiletries.

What was odd about this room is that there are some definite settling issues. Somewhat to be expected for an old hotel, but the room noticably slants uphill towards the bed. So much, in fact, that the nightstand and desk drawers do not stay shut. Another oddity is that the television is mounted very high on the wall. It makes for awkward viewing and craning your neck. This room may not be ideal for a longer stay because there is no dresser in the room. If I had to choose between a couch or a dresser, I would have probably picked a dresser because the location of the couch does not allow you to watch television. Oh, and because of the couch, the closet door does not open all the way.

There was no iron or ironing board in the room, but when I called for one, it was promptly delivered. Service was quite efficient, and the complimentary continental breakfast was very good.

Overall, I had a nice stay. I've had better, had worse. There are plenty of boutique hotels in San Francisco that are much better.
