Under Construction

Would not recommend Sun, Dec 20, 2015
The hotel is newly acquired and under construction. The price is reduced for that reason. There is not enough parking on site. Our room smelt like someone had just fried fish in it. Because of this The front desk did not charge us the $45 for parking.

cute, quirky and affordable

Would recommend Fri, Dec 4, 2015
Overall was a great stay. The room design is lacking (some design elements were not thought through, but I am a design snob being a hotel designer myself). The lobby is well designed, fun concept and elements. The complimentary wine in the afternoon is a really nice feature that brings guests out and encourages mingling. The corridor design needs to be updated (was not only my point of view, but another guest brought it up during the wine hour)..... Overall - convenient, clean, good value for the money.

quick stopover with great comfort

Would recommend Tue, May 26, 2015
The hotel definitely served its purpose. It is definitely very different than hotels I've stayed at before. It seems to be inspired by asian fusion and has a spunk to it, but in a good way. We dropped off our bags and left for the day to explore. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We got in late and basically just used the hotel for overnight - but no complaints there. The rooms for comfortable and spacious. The hotel hallways are colorful and cheerful. Would recommend.

Last minute for work

Would not recommend Wed, Apr 15, 2015
Chose this hotel because it was the closest and best value I could find. The bed looked super comfortable on the website, so I chose it mainly because of that. I got to the hotel and was helped with my bags and offered wine. The room was nice, and clean. Construction going on so it was noisy for a couple hours but stopped around 8pm. The bed was HORRIBLE. Very very stiff and made a lot of noise when you moved. I didn't get a good sleep, and I needed one for work. :( It was disappointing. When I left the front desk man gave me an umbrella and let me pull into the garage so I didnt get soaked. The service and location are the only things that make this hotel redeemable. :)

Unique Hotel

Would recommend Tue, Mar 10, 2015
The murals on the walls in the common areas, rooms and even the elevators were interesting and unique. The beds were very comfy and the rooms were clean. My only issue with this venue was the parking situation. They don't have enough parking for hotel guests and we almost got stuck having to park at an off site lot. They charge $25/day for parking so keep that in mind when you book this hotel.

Nice location near Japan Center

Would recommend Thu, Jan 15, 2015
Lots of great walking around. Stayed there last year, too. This year seemed maybe smidge not as clean but don't hold me to it--believe it is now a Kimpton Hotel last year was a Joie de Vivre Hotel no idea what the difference is. Really a pleasant stay. Japan Center very close. Filmore St is nice to walk around.

Dining

Sweet Maple restaurant was terrific. Best breakfast I've had in years. Sub out the potatoes for berries and even feels healthy. Sweet Maple 2101 Sutter Street San Francisco, CA 94115

Good Stay

Would not recommend Wed, Nov 26, 2014
This hotel has a good location to public transportation to take you into the real heart of SF, but I expected a little more from it. No pool, no microwaves in room and no breakfast, but they did have a wine night 5-6 every night while we were there. The rooms did have fridges though, which was nice. Also though, all 3 nights we stayed there I was awoken early in the AM to the sound of trash trucks. We were on the front of the building. It was very loud. You could hear street noise at night too.

Good location

Would recommend Wed, Oct 8, 2014
Hotel Tomo is very close to the city with reasonable price than downtown hotels. If you take bus, it will only take 20 min to downtown. (SF downtown hotels are way over priced) It's not luxurious hotel but room was clean and big enough. Some of the things need improvement like not having luggage rack or slippers in the room. TV channels were very limited compare to other hotels. Try to get higher floor room cause you can hear some party or drunk people noise on Fri/Sat night. Overnight parking is way over priced.
