Staff there had a very good sense of humor, they provided a comfortable atmosphere. I stayed 3 nights, it's a good place not only for its convenient location, but also for its price. Good choice for students and travelers.
We LOVED this hotel! Room was spotless and very comfortable. Big bathroom (with great water pressure even tho we were on the 5th floor!). Also big walk-in closet with lots of hangers as well as plenty of drawer space. Big bright windows which you
could open. We stayed 4 days and every staff member we interacted with was very friendly and helpful. It had everything we needed and nothing we didn't. Very convenient location - you would pay a lot more money for a better location, and this was pretty much within walking distance of most things we wanted to do and see. Another advantage - the area had real character, being just outside the real touristy area. Lots of little breakfast cafes and small grocery stores/liquor stores close by. We would definitely stay here again on future trips to San Francisco.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Hotel has valet parking at $34 a night. There are garages close by for $21 a night.
Hotel Carlton was the perfect place to stay in San Francisco. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was clean and lively. There were many guests from all over the world and the evening wine hour is full of interesting people.
definitely stay here again.
Hotel was above average for San Francisco, but just average for your everyday traveler. They did a good job with the recent renovation, but the room size is small and there is no type of temperature control in the rooms (you can either choose to
have your window open or closed). Good location, staff is very helpful.
