We (2 adults and 2 teen aged girls) just spent a weekend at this hotel. I was nervous, based on some of the previous negative reviews; however, we were pleasantly surprised. Like other Kimpton properties, this hotel is charming rather than sleek. We were greeted by a beautiful Christmas tree in the lobby which has several cozy seating areas where you can enjoy their morning coffee/tea service or afternoon wine reception.
check-in was adequate, not exceptional. Our room had two very comfortable double beds. It was not huge, but like the lobby, charming and clean, with soft yellow, cheery wallpaper. the location is great. We had a room on the 5th floor. The "11" series tend to run a big bigger. Not bothered by noise at all. We expected some, being in a downtown location.
also, they have three daily newspapers (SF Chron, WSJ and NYT) and even had the Sunday Times and Chron. Loved it.
Parking is expensive, but standard for the city.
All in all, an excellent value (we got a hotwire deal)
On the edge of the tenderloin, so a bit gritty. Having spent several years in SF, I appreciate the neighborhood for what it is, but if you are bothered by seeing the occasional homeless person, then stay closer to union square.
