One week Lagos, the next week San Francisco...stayed here for 3 nights on business. Most reviews have captured the place well, wine hour, dog friendly, great location with cable car on the doorstep, but my room, for $269 + $37.66 (tax) + $0.17 (CA tourism dist assessment) + $6.05 (SF tourism assessment) per night was distinctly on the small side for the invisible dog and me... I know it's God's City and all that but phew...
There was a '$10 off' bar / minibar card and a $10 reward for not having your room cleaned (being green - all in favour of that), but not sure whether this is a permanent feature of Kimpton hotels...
Well trained and knowledgeable staff and a good selection of whisky. That's a big plus.
Will I stay there again?? I struggle at the price but on the balance of probability, yes (ish).
