Editorial review:

This semi-chic hotel has fabulous service, relaxing and contemporary rooms, and a great location near Union Square. The food at the Fifth Floor restaurant is divine, and the décor was also praised for its lightheartedness. The service is impeccable.

              Maverick, the nicest staffer (chocolate lab that belongs to the GM that I never saw) there. The staff at the nice restaurant on the 5th floor and Akba, the GM of the restaurant. The location.

              The front desk staff is not nearly as friendly as the other kimpton hotel staffers. The wine hour ends whenever the wine ends, not at the hour. They don't got out of their way to get more, but make up excuses for why they can't or act busy. They business center computer that charges you everytime you have to log on (as it kicks you off every 10 minutes)....

              Hotel is well situated and nicely furnished, great bed

              Room was noisy at night - thin walls and close to work areas

              Great hotel large rooms. Had alot of little extras that were great like iced water in foyer, coffee bar in mornings and wine hour every afternoon where you met other travellers. Would definately stay again.

              I was not overly impressed.

              I came to San Fran to do the Avon Cancer Walk and wanted to spend 2 nights in the city...in the end I stayed only one night as I found it so hard to find a reasonable hotel to stay in as everything was booked up...supposedly there was a convention in town. I paid over $500 for one night too expensive and no way near the star rating you would expect...so I stayed out of necessity and was not blown away by my stay. It was in a good location close to major stores and a shopping mall but the streets around the hotel did not make me feel safe at night as their were many street people around and so I stayed in my hotel room and did not venture out at night.

              The location was excellent. It was in the middle of everything and was extremely convenient to shops, restraurants and buses. The staff was extremely helpful and courtesty. The room was amazing and big. The big was so very comfortable. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and were upgraded to this huge room which was great. I loved this hotel.

              Hi, my wife and I really liked your hotel. The location was really great, the people (at all levels) were nice, the rooms were excellent and the food (we had breakfast and the chefs choice for dinner) memorable. We also checked where else you have hotels for our future trips. My wife and I both think a comparative late12 noon checkout time sets you apart from other hotels. We had been away from home for 3 months and San Francisco was our last stop before returning to Melbourne on a 4.45pm flight. Checkout time is a major concern for holiday makers, it just makes it so much easier and less stress on departure. We were also very lucky we did get a good rate through Booked.net Thanks very much George and Diane Peat

              Only that it is sometimes nice to have coffee/tea making facilities in the room rather than have to go to level 5 (we were on level 9).

              the location is perfect for shopping, a baseball game or a day by the water. Within walking distance of everything and an easy drive into and out of the city.

              Located right at Union Square,the shopping was literally at the doorstep. Very convenient to the bart system, so easy to get to anywhere in the city you wanted to go. Staff was fabulous - friendly and efficient. Would definitely go back next time I'm in San Francisco!

              Love the location

              Stayed at 3 Kimpton hotels and although we love the hotel, the bed during l out Kimpton stays made my husbands back sore. So, unfortunately we have to find another hotel now. So sad

              A very good city centre hotel which is well located for shopping and good restaurants. Staff were very friendly and reception in particular could not do enough to ensure you had a pleasant stay with them.

              I enjoyed the comfort of the bed. The location was ideal.

              Upon arrival, the room was not very clean. Called the front desk, they sent someone immediately. There was an extra $100. deposit per night, that was never mentioned until we actually checked in, even though the paperwork we had stated that no deposit would be added.

              Our hotel room was very clean, quiet, and updated. It had everything we wanted except a great view. Our 8th floor view was of the building next door - not the best but not a problem since we were gone most of each day of our stay. The room was very comfortable. Definitely loved the location - this hotel is located in the heart of San Francisco. It is very easy to get anywhere in downtown. It is less than a block away from the bart station. It is very near the Cable Car turnaround. My wife and I will consider staying here again on our next visit to sf.
