Hotel Whitcomb

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Close to downtown city hall. Very convenience location.

Beautiful and old fashioned. Sparsely furnished and lit.

Great location ie BART station but obviously a homelessness issue in the neaighborhood.

Location was close to many venues. Walkable to lower Hayes Valley( shopping and restaurants) and the Civic Center. Also, getting to the hotel was a breeze taking BART from the airport.

Our toilet did not flush, called for the front desk to send something to the room - they said to come pick it up instead. Very average hotel.

Location is very excellent..right by the metro station and on the main road..you can catch tax, train , bus in front of your hotel..this is Historic hotel so don't except all new bright things..they maintain the old building pretty well..inside room was very clean ..bed was super clean..so I was very happy with my room service..Gym is very small.. Overall good hotel..but I will choose hotel near to the fisherman's warf or downtown facing warf..that will be more things to do over weekend..

Wifi was very inadequate: slow with tenuous connectivity. Very hard to work in the room. Nice historical place, but my room was too small for $300/night.

Great location close to bart, historic older hotel but comfortable rooms. Could be cleaner and security could be increased.

I actually liked this hotel a lot and would return if I were in San Francisco again. It exceeded my expectations. Rolando helped us at the front desk and made our stay pleasing from the start. Hotel Whitcomb is a historic hotel central to many attractions in the city. The grounds were in great condition with a restaurant and Starbucks on site. The rooms were very nice and comfy. The daily staff kept things clean. This is also the first eco-friendly hotel I visited. They gave us a portable water bottle that can be filled from a machine at the ice room.

Very bad hotel very old, nothing is working rooms very very [poor, no wifi as advertised. area full of homeless and drugs infront of hotel smoke coming into rooms

Old world charm. Hotel is over 100 years old. Nice rooms. On the edge of the tenderloin near civic center. Only surprise is parking is now $51.30 per night! So we parked at the nearby civic underground garage for $3/hour.

Room is a noisy with an old fan in the toilets very few electrical outlets very poor light and the showers freezing cold

This hotel is fine if you want a budget experience. It’s a rundown property with a homeless encampment right outside. It’s not a great area of town to walk around in at night especially as a single mom. The phone in the room had no cords - we had no way to call down for assistance when we needed something. The sheets on one of the beds has black spots clearly visible at the top when it was turned down. There was the same peanut shell on the ground in the hallway the entire four days we were there - the hall was incredibly dirty. The only highlight was a Starbucks adjacent to the lobby.

I had a great experience with Asal.. She completely exceeded my expectations on our stay and would highly recommend this property.

Close to city, walking distance to market street, shopping areas, but parking is expensive and long wait line for check in at the front counter, lack of staff

Wonderful staff from the Valet parking to the front desk. Beautiful hotel entrance and great location.
