Easy check in. Great room. Would stay again.

Comfortable and clean beds. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants. I will stay here again.

Nice rooms, old and in need of an upgrade. Staff nice, polite, and trained accordingly. Due to Covid-19 rooms are sealed and cleaned properly. Thank you

The Kensington Park is a grand old hotel in San Francisco, within walking distance of Chinatown. The facilities are lovely and well-kept and the staff are friendly and very accommodating. As is common in older hotels, the rooms are a little small, but honestly I didn’t spend a great deal of time in the room. When I did, it was comfortable and filled all my needs. The afternoon tea and sherry is a nice little touch!

Nice hotel with the quality of the big chains, but charm of a local. Great bed, really friendly staff, and our room was actually really quiet (which is hard to find in this city).

A playhouse within a hotel was very different. I didn't like the water for the shower going back and forth between hot & cold

I really loved the location, right off Union Square. It’s a very old building, but charming I thought. The staff was very helpful and always pleasant. The one thing I didn’t like was the shower was pretty dismal. Other rooms may have had better showers but it was only for a few nights so we endured. I’d stay there again but would ask for a better shower.

Great location. A bit pricey for what you get. Booked early thought I was getting a great price. Unfortunately it went way cheaper the closer our dates came. I booked non refundable next time I think I will book that I can cancel and rebook.

No Air conditioning. Water pressure was terrible.

In the middle of everything. Historic and cute building would stay again.

very quiet room, private. All what I was looking for.
