Room was clean and as advertised. Good location to enjoy the attractions that San Francisco has to offer. Excellent access to public transportation.

Nice older hotel, but....

It's not a bad place but I probably wouldn't stay there again. Not a lot great places to eat in walking distance, no coffee provided (in room or in lobby#, wifi bandwidth was up and down #people sitting in the halls to get signal).

Mood over Matter

Very direct and unmannerly front off house staff, checking in was a laugh and thought I was getting arrested with the bad mannered male receptionist on duty. Nice hotel with no personality and lacking the american flare I would expect. Wifi was slow like the hot water. Previous comments on the homelessness was putting me off but found them more polite and mannerly than some of the staff.

Easy Access to Transportation

Hotel Lobby furnishings are luxurious and reflect the hotel's historic status. However, the rooms don't reflect that grandeur. Shower has little water pressure and finishings in rooms are less than impressive. Hotel is located in a semi-sketchy area in the Civic District, a block or two from the Asian Art Museum, City Hall and the Opera House. Not a lot to see or do within walking distance, but the BART is literally right outside the hotel. BB tour buses has a stop within a block or two, and several major buslines run right past the hotel. The Concierge service was impeccable--we had no issues navigating travel or deciding which neighborhoods would suit us best (two 20-something women in town for a long weekend). The quality for the price is spot on and if you aren't looking for convenience of any major attractions right outside your front door I would definitely recommend a stay at Hotel Whitcomb..

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Less than 10 minutes walk is a small, carnival-themed restaurant called "The Straw." Decor is unique, food is incredible and the star of the menu is a juicy burger with glazed donuts in lieu of a bun. Definitely worth checking out! (Call ahead for reservations--space is limited).

Pride 2014

The lobby and hallways are beautiful and classic. I felt like I had walked into an old Hollywood hotel. The staff could have been friendlier. But our location was perfect for pride! We were a block away from all the big events and could go back to the room to use the bathroom or have a drink. The rooms were a little small. But I would definitely stay here again for pride
