Quaint and perfect

Would recommend Mon, Dec 21, 2015
The lobby is newly remodeled and very appealing, with middle eastern touches but not over the top. The room is not large but very nice. The bed was very comfortable and. The bathroom is workable. Our room was on Sutter St, so I was concerned with noise, but it was not a problem. The wine hour and musical entertainment are a lovely touch I would recommend they improve the wine a bit for those of us more familiar with wine. The staff is so personable and helpful. Location is good, as long as you don't mind catching a ride to other locales. Good bar next door, with bar/pub food and good cocktails and beer on draft. We will definitely stay here again.

Cozy and friendly

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
I love Carlton. Their staff is friendly, and their rooms are tastefully colorful and cozy. They are on the small side (especially for 2 people), but the decor, especially the ceiling fan and the window treatment, make them feel roomier than they are. Close to the Union Square, Nob Hill, Japantown, and Chinatown, all within a walking distance. Saha restaurant (Yemeni) in the hotel is something I always look forward to, too.

Very Good Experience

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
I was in SF for four days at a conference and this hotel was a 20 min. walk. The room I was in was quiet, upgraded and comfortable. Staff were friendly and there was an opportunity to meet other guests at the 5:30 cocktail hour in the lobby. If I return to SF, I would have no hesitation to book this hotel again. Excellent value.

Quient nights in old Budapest

Would recommend Tue, Sep 8, 2015
It is one of the best locations in the city. Close to all major bus lines. and a great walking distance to all city center arts events. AWESOME staff at the desk. The Hotel it self reminds me of old Europe charm. The lobby could stand in for a 40's to late 50's movie set. They have a awesome wine tasting Happy Hour It is worth taking the time to sit in the lobby exchange conversation with other hotel guest enjoying a glass of top rate wines. and it's free!!! WOW!!!!. To all the staff.at this remarkable hotel my sincere thank you. Good Job. Michael

A convenient hotel with nice rooms

Would recommend Sun, Jun 28, 2015
Hotel Carlton is a perfectly nice place to stay with terrifically appointed rooms and a great staff, incredibly gracious and helpful. The hotel is an old building updated with modern features and feel without losing all the old charm. I would have liked if the room door and adjoining doors (where suites can be opened) had a seal at the bottom to reduce noise and light. The bed was perfect, and it's one of the best hotel beds I've slept on. While I came during a busy week and San Francisco is an expensive town to stay in, the hotel's price does seem expensive for one that's not downtown. But it's walkable to all attractions and very close to Japantown.

Two best friends reunited in SF!

Would recommend Tue, May 5, 2015
Really enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful hotel. We loved the decor of the lobby and our room, which felt more like a guest bedroom in someone's home rather than a hotel room. The staff was very friendly and kind. We would stay here again!
