It is near the Orpheum Theater but otherwise not much nearby.

Super close to the BART station. Easy access to the buses, walking distance to lots of restaurants and theaters, Staff was extremely helpful and kind.

Beautiful old hotel. Well maintained. Staff goes above and beyond to make guests feel comfortable. Bernie at the front desk was more than accommodating at check in. Rooms are tiny, and fixtures are not at all modern, but beds are comfortable and everything functions as it should! I would highly recommend this hotel. Can’t be beat for the nightly rate!!

Great historical property! I had a big room with wonderful high ceilings and two closets. Plenty of room! Wish I could have studied there longer. Very atmospheric and cool. Not crazy about the colors of the carpeting but the halls, but loved all the mirrors in the big wide hallways.

This place was super nice clean and close to everything

Definitely an old building that's been renovated. It's hard to find, but they do have valet parking in the back, down a small street.

This is actually a beautiful old hotel (100 years I was told), and in lovely condition. We enjoyed the sense of history and architecture! It was kept very clean. The beds were cozy. Room was not huge but large enough for comfort, with very high ceilings. (Expected in an older building). The staff were helpful and friendly, especially “Bernie” at the front desk check in. We stayed to see Hamilton at the Orpheum, which is right across the street on the corner. One minute walk. **The ONLY downside is the state of Market street itself, which is not the best hood, to be honest. I know the city is trying to clean it up, but expect lots of homelessness, open drug dealing, and bad smells. It’s not a place to take a walk. (But you can easily catch a train right outside the theater). However, it was just myself (a woman) and my teen daughter and we felt entirely safe in our hotel. The theatre had lots of security outside and the streets seemed to be washed every day (smelled of bleach and cleansers). We also had good eats at the diner directly across from the hotel for dinner and breakfast. Also clean and reasonably priced. I’d stay again to see a show.

I love old historic hotels and this was a treat – my girlfriend enjoyed it. The facilities are good but there are minor scuffs here and there – it will improve the place if they are fixed. Be aware: The Street was noisy. Overall, very nice hotel.

The location was great and the property was nicely maintained. There is no coffee in the room and on our last day there was no coffee in the lobby.

The Whitcomb is a historic building which has been recently upgraded. The ballroom is beautiful and a great venue for dancing. I miss the restaurant, but appreciate the bar in the lobby. My room was comfortable with a good bed, good pillows, and a responsive new heating/air conditioning unit. The new lamps had lots of electrical outlets and bright bulbs. The Wi-Fi was also quite good. New carpets completely changed the ambiance. What I appreciated the most, though, was the friendly staff.

I didn’t like how the bathrooms had a little bit of mildew/mold in tile grout in shower and above shower on ceiling. Need better cleaning possibly with bleach.

Beautiful, old hotel with classic textures and decor. Although - It is very old our room smelled a bit like “old” and ac unit was not working. Good thing we didn’t need it too much

Great location. Property had a horrible smell in the entry way and all the halls. Very old and dingy. The coffee stand was nice as well as the sitting area. The rooms are horribly small and bathrooms are tiny!
