Last minute getaway

I booked the hotel on my ipad on the way to the city. Found that it had better than average reviews for the price. We wanted a pet friendly hotel and to be near Union Square as to not require a taxi in order to get around and the location was spot on! The staff was very professional and friendly, the hotel was quaint and clean. The only issue I had was that the queen size bed was a very small queen size bed and very noisy. What was nice, was that we were off the street and did not hear any sirenes or traffic. I would stay again, but would get a king size bed.

Elegant and Old Style

Quite a beautiful hotel! I didn't realize it was going to be quite as old-styled as it was, but it was very comfortable and nicely styled. We stayed in a king suite and the room was split into two, so that was nice. We got a continental breakfast that was really good. We only stayed for one night, so I don't have too much to report about. But they are pet friendly, which is really awesome for a hotel downtown! Really nice staff and surprisingly dead quiet for a hotel right in the middle of the downtown. I don't know if I heard anything from the outside the entire time we were there. It was pretty amazing! And the bed was really really cozy! Same with the sofa bed!

Great Location but Lacking in Comfort and Quality

Cons: The room was very small and the furniture was uncomfortable. In particular, the bed was loud and squeaky upon even the slighted movement. The layout was cramped with nowhere to unpack a suitcase and with the TV placed at an uncomfortable angle for viewing. The room safe was too small for a 15" laptop and for my large camera, let alone for both. The pictures online make the hotel look beautiful, but it is slightly shabby up close, with worn furniture, and with peeling paint and blistered wall paper in some places. Parking is ridiculous as well: the hotel charges $48 per night, even though nearby parking garages charge as little as half that much. The maintenance staff also decided to do what the front desk described as "deep cleaning" on the room next to mine at 7:30 in the morning, which consisted of an hour of banging and scraping on the wall behind my headboard. Really unpleasant, and even when I complained to the front desk, it continued. Pros: The room was very clean and the staff were friendly, attentive, and helpful. Best of all is the location, which can't be beat: one block from Union Square and all of the amenities in the heart of San Francisco, including shopping, restaurants of every price range and type, transit (buses, cable car, and BART all nearby), and nightlife. Overall I would not stay here again. There are many nearby hotels of higher quality and in better repair, and probably more comfortable too. I have stayed in many Kimpton hotels and this was really not up to their usual high standards. It should not be listed as four stars - I would say 2.5 is more accurate.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

For inexpensive but excellent South Asian food (Pakistani and Indian), try Shalimar a few blocks from the hotel. It is a hole-in-the-wall but the food and prices can't be beat.

Great price and great location

The room was beautiful, clean, and quiet. The hotel offers valet parking, and it's just a short walk from Union Square. I'd definitely stay again.

excellent hotel in great location

I booked last minute into the Club level. Everything about my stay from start to finish was lovely. Staff were friendly and accommodating of a very late check in. The location was so convenient. Room was small, like many urban boutique hotels, but clean, well appointed, quiet and so comfortable. Club Lounge breakfast was a pleasant surprise. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Overnight San Fran

OK. Not great but worth the discounted price. $48 valet parking pretty annoying. Staff seemed a little uptight. Clean and well appointed.
