Convenient, friendly, excellent value

Would recommend Mon, Apr 13, 2015
Safety- this is Tender Nob not Tenderloin, just below exclusive Nob Hill. Very comfortable walking east on Sutter, Post or Geary. Going south on Larkin becomes a bit seedy so we avoid at night. The desk staff gave us a map and highlighted area on map. Room: We had room in back away from Sutter, which I advise. Room ventilation seems non-existent. There is heat but no A/C. We opened window and no noise problem from that. Don’t know if walls thin but there is a connecting door to adjacent room and the noise does come through that. Note to hotel- suggest remove and close wall. Bathroom- updated fixtures, excellent hot water. Bed- very comfortable. Room size adequate for the price. We were able to get for excellent price with a 15 on line booking discount. About 12-15minute walk to Union Square and ~20 minute walk to Moscone convention center. We didn’t eat in the hotel restaurant Saha. Did have very nice lunch at ‘Fly’ next door. Wine in lobby from 5:30 – 6. Staff: friendly, helpful.

Good for the money

Would recommend Mon, Apr 6, 2015
The hotel was very close to what I expected compared to my impression based on the website. The staff was very courteous. I had requested king bed but they had only 2 double beds which was also fine with me. They apologized and gave me a free breakfast voucher. I thought that was very nice of them. Convenient by bus (#2) to go to Pier 1.

A really nice place to crash.

Would recommend Thu, Mar 26, 2015
A clean, charming hotel with very friendly staff, Eco Friendly/Green amenities, and a really interesting design. Large, comfortable bathtubs, which are great after a long day hiking around the hills in San Francisco. The hotel is on the outskirts of the Tenderloin, so the locals can be a bit colorful, but that comes with the territory in SF. The pillows are a bit small, but that's a minor nitpick, as they give you a lot of pillows. Additionally, a new bakery opened up on Larkin, and you may find yourself tempted by some amazing smells wafting up into your room in the mornings, so there's that to contend with. All in all it was a really nice place to crash.

Comfortable

Would recommend Thu, Mar 19, 2015
The only drawback, really, is the incredibly thin walls. A family with young children in the room next to me who didn't settle until after 10:00 made for an unenjoyable evening when looking to relax for the evening.

Good Deal for a short stay

Would recommend Fri, Feb 20, 2015
Very friendly staff. Nice self-parking option a block down. Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Street noise is a problem if you like to sleep in. But overall, a great deal for a short stay!

Staff at the Hotel Carlton was the best part about the hotel. They are so nice and always joking around with the guests. Would come here any time over any of the other hotels in San Francisco
