Hotel was descent

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 29, 2015
This hotel was just ok it was clean and had a great location. Internet did not work well cut in and out just ended up using data. Staff was a little on the short side really didn't want to engage with you or really answer questions wanted to visit with each other more. Morning breakfast was just ok had a good variety but was always out of items and took quite awhile for the one person to refill and that one person wasn't too friendly either.

Disappointing experience

Would not recommend Tue, Jun 30, 2015
The staff were nice but the room was unimpressive and outdated. Our bathroom ceiling leaked all night. The most disappointing experience with Kimpton thus far. The next time I go to San Fran I will stay at the Monaco and NOT Prescott

nice, friendly hotel

Would recommend Tue, Jun 9, 2015
Nice lobby/lounge, allows dogs. Close to the show we were going to see, so close to other things. They apparently allow dogs and have references for dog walkers/sitters.

Would recommend Mon, May 25, 2015
Great little hotel one block off union square. Room were just big enough to be comfortable. Beds very nice and cozy. Many choices of restaurants nearby and lots of nightlife all within a quick 5-10 minutes walk. Would highly recommend for a nice sf hotel.

birthday trip

Would recommend Sat, Apr 25, 2015
I stayed at the Prescott with my two friends. We had a great time! FYI the hotel isn't big. The single rooms aren't big, however they aren't tiny. There's space to walk, space for your stuff, etc. The staff was so friendly, the rooms were clean and the location was great. Not too far from downtown San Francisco/ China town. Timothy the bell man was great!!! Omg we love Timothy. He helped make our stay great!

Hotel is clean and conveniently located in Safe area. Although it is next to the tenderloin, a rather unsavory neighborhood. It wouldn't stop me from staying here again. Close to ferry building, Chinatown and Bart rail system
