The hotel worked great for me. It was close to Bart and the office, and the room was clean and felt safe. I also enjoyed that Perry’s was just downstairs and it make grabbing dinner and coffee in the morning very convenient.

Hotel was great! I was a little apprehensive as the price was quite a bit lower than the others in the financial district but was very pleasantly surprised when I walked into the room. Although the room was small, the décor was very similar to the much more expensive Omni Hotel. The lobby area was very upscale and trendy. Extremely clean and the staff was very friendly. I think this is my new go to hotel when in the city.

The pillows need replacement with soft, feather pillows. Those supplied now are hard foam rubber.

If you like the Embarcadero neighborhood of the City this small, custom hotel is for you. Great restaurants nearby.

Awful Hotel

Would not recommend Wed, Sep 9, 2015
I was so unhappy with it. Pictures online aren't accurate, don't get your money's worth, they were doing work on the next room over all night.

I have stayed at this hotel several times - it is in a great GREAT location, safe neighborhood, easy to get to BART and MUNI and across the street from the ferry building. I stay there every time I go to SF - excellent value for the $.

Small hotel but nice location

Would not recommend Wed, Feb 18, 2015
Nice location and very friendly staff. Room leaves a lot to be desired, I think my room in my parents house was bigger!! Walls are paper thin so if you have a noisy neighbor good luck sleeping.

Small Rooms - Good for One Night

Would recommend Wed, Feb 11, 2015
Definitely a modern and clean hotel with courteous staff and convenient valet parking. Hotel Griffon is just around the corner from the Ferry Building and is not a bad walk to Fisherman's Wharf. I wouldn't recommend it though for more than 1 or 2 nights. Our room was quite small - less than the size of a studio apartment. FOrtunately, we didn't bring our child as there is absolutely no room for a crib. If you don't mind that, I can't say anything else bad about it.
