Located within walking distance of Union Square and the Civic Centre, the Hotel Carlton offers excellent value and a very welcoming atmosphere. The reception staff were very friendly, the lobby a comfortable place to hang out with daily "happy hour" complimentary wine from 5.30-6.00pm.
The rooms are very comfortable (we had a King Sized bed) and provide adequate space.
Not too many negatives to comment on - the complimentary wifi was inconsistent and the elevators a bit slow, but otherwise I'd highly recommend staying here. The general location is a bit on the "gritty" side, but gives a perspective of the real San Francisco.
The patrons were of all ages and nationalities.
