Right in the heart of the historical San Francisco waterfront is the Hotel Griffon, combining culture and charm with cutting-edge design. As an upmarket boutique hotel, it lacks the uniformity of big chains, but still impresses with a combination of great service and stylish modern design. Moments from San Francisco Bay, the other great selling point of Hotel Griffon is its superb location and views of this vibrant city. Fans of Armistead Maupin will be delighted to eat in Perry's, the classic American restaurant immortalized in his books. 
Rooms
With its distinctive architectural features and exposed brickwork, the guest rooms at Hotel Griffon are quirky and design-led but still extremely comfortable. Choose between a superior with queen bed, and deluxe with king. Both rooms have down bedding, 300-thread-count bed linens, and plush mattresses. IPod docking stations are a nice touch, as well as the 32-inch flat-screen televisions that come as standard. Well-stocked bathrooms provide robes, high-class complimentary toiletries such as Aveda, and marble vanity units. Complimentary turndown service and daily newspaper are thrown in, making the Hotel Griffon feel more of a luxury package than many boutique hotels. Deluxe king rooms also offer twice-daily housekeeping and room service, should the guest require it. Nonsmoking throughout, guests are well advised to request a room with a view of the glittering San Francisco Bay, which can be appreciated from the comfortable window seat. The hotel also offers its guests the use of a small but intimate boardroom with dining facilities and balcony area, as well as access to the adjoining health club and pool (fees apply). Another bonus is free Wi-Fi in the hotel lobby, and of course the chance to dine in the Iconic Perry's restaurant.

Small hotel but nice location

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.

One Night Stand

Good location, near many restaurants, near Embarcadero and movies. Friendly staff, Perry's has good food. Only downside was the $40 extra for parking after I thought I was to get free parking.

Great Location

For my needs the location couldn't have been better. The room was quite small but clean and comfortable. TV had a ton of stations. There was no fridge nor snacks in the room, which was a negative for me.

Understated class

After a long day of travel the quiet and unobtrusive front desk process was a welcome change from the usual hubbub. The room was cozy and well appointed, the dining was casual and delectable, the front desk knowledgeable and helpful, the location safe and picturesque, and the overall experience comfortable.

Fantastic and upscale.

I was in San Francisco to do the San Francisco Marathon. I chose Hotel Griffon primarily for it's cheap rates and its close proximity to the race start/finish. The hotel was as advertised and would not hestiate on returning to that hotel again. The free internet lobby stations was great. Alot of hotels charge for internet use, which sucks. I would recommend this hotel to a friend.
