Felt deceived

Hotel picture from outside looks great and hotel check-in staff were very courteous. However, it's by far the smallest room and worst window view in all of my travel experience so far. Old styled room with very squeaky and uncomfortable mattress. They had a bottle of water in the room for $6!! It would be nice to have a smaller complimentary bottle at the very least. To use the fridge/mini bar, you need to request for a key. Valet parking is $50. Location though was very good. A block away from Union Square, 1 block from the cable car stop and 4 blocks away from Grace Cathedral.

Business Stay extended for play

This hotel was great, unfortunately I was not there for more than a few hours as it is located in a great location to explore the city.

Great weekend in San Fran

Walking distance to Union Square. Car park around the corner for the rest.

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.

Great Place

Great place. walking distance to the Orpheum Theatre and Union square is one block away. Free drinks and breakfast if staying in the club section - well worth it.
