Chic boutique establishment on the waterfront
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. 
3 Reasons To Stay:
  • Unrivaled views of the Bay and Bridge
  • Contemporary style and top-notch design 
  • Acclaimed Perry's restaurant attached
Hotel Griffon 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.

Perfect home base for business or sightseeing

We chose this hotel for 2 reasons: its location just off the Embarcadero and the $1.00 valet parking on the weekend. However, the Griffon Hotel was even better than I had anticipated: quaint, comfortable, charming and clean. My sister and I had requested early check-in and for our luggage to be held after check-out time; both requests were cheerfully accommodated. The view from our window wasn't bad, but if I were staying here again, I would request a room with a view of the bay (although that would probably cost more). The only reason I gave 4 stars for room comfort was that it was quite small - but ok if you're not spending much time in your room. Amenities had 4 stars due to only fruit and coffee for breakfast. Everything else was outstanding - we loved it, would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to friends. Oh - another plus is it's close to all forms of transportation and even offers a ride to the Financial District on weekdays!

Nice weekend getaway

This place is top notch. The staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the city. The rooms are a bit on the small side bit make up for it with character and a great view of the bay. Perfect for a weekend getaway with the misses.

Amazing Stay

While driving up for a spur of the moment trip, I happened to see a special for this place. It was an amazing stay for the value. The room was small but super cute. Great robes in the room. The staff was incredibly helpful and nice. fyi, parking is not included and if you allow them to valet it, it is an extra cost of 40 bucks

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.

Great place for couples!

I took my girlfriend here for a long weekend getaway. The location is perfect and close to Union Square. The staff was courteous, kind, and attentive which made the trip even better. I felt that the overall experience was worth every penny and then some. Warning for people from smaller cities: The hotel rooms in San Francisco are small. The room we had at Hotel Griffon was perfectly comfortable but it is certainly smaller than what you can get in some other cities. This is the same for all hotels in San Francisco unless you are ready to spend a great deal of money. Just a FYI.

Go check out out the Delancey Street Restaurant. It is very tasty and very affordable compared to some of the other places we went to in the city. The service was good and if you sit outside you get a great view of the Bay Bridge.
