OVERALL WONDERFUL

Posted 19-Aug-2014
Pros: PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING. AS I SAID, THE HOTEL STAFF WERE WONDERFUL AND OVERALL, OUR STAY THERE WAS PERFECT.
Cons: THIS IS AN OLDER HOTEL, AND THE HALLS HAVE NOT BEEN "UPDATED", BUT THE ROOMS THEMSELVES WERE VERY NICE.
Location: RIGHT OFF UNION SQUARE - THE PERFECT LOCATION FOR SHOPPING, DINING, AND BEING IN THE CENTER OF THE CITY.
WAS EXPECTING SOMETHING PERHAPS A BIT MORE UPSCALE FOR THE PRICE, BUT AFTER ALL, IT WAS 1/2 BLOCK OFF UNION SQUARE. BEDS WERE VERY COMFORTABLE WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF PILLOWS (TWO CHOICES - BOTH DOWN & FIBREFILLED). THE ROOM WAS VERY CLEAN AND NICELY APPOINTED, AND THE HOTEL STAFF COULD NOT POSSIBLY HAVE BEEN NICER OR MORE HELPFUL. WOULD DEFINITELY BOOK THIS HOTEL AGAIN!

One Night at the Kensington

Posted 16-Aug-2014
Pros: It was clean and the staff was friendly.
Cons: Expedia booking leaves a lot to be desired. It is far too general. I would not have booked this hotel room for 3 people!
Location: The location is excellent. Everything is within walking distance/
The location is excellent and parking is convenient. Afternoon sherry and tea is a lovely touch and the small lobby is elegant. The room, however, was a disappointment. The only window looked directly into the windows of a racket club. The 3 of us, (Grandmother, daughter, and 14 year old boy) were crammed as if sardines. I recommend this hotel for singles or couples only

Good one night.

Posted 11-Aug-2014
Pros: Centrally located.
Cons: Improve coffee/tea service. Very easy in a food city like SF.
Location: Trolley is a block away. Union Square. Easy access to everything the city has to offer.
Always wanted to stay at this hotel. Lived in San Francisco and had friends stay here. Worked next door at Farallon and have gone to plays upstairs. Loved that I could finally stay there. The property is very unique and perfect for our visit. Joshua at the front desk was great when we checked in and the doorman was very helpful as well. The room was very clean and quiet. As it is a charming older property expect to have few outlets for plugging in your phones etc. Expect a tiny bathroom but everything worked for the most part. Would definitely consider staying there again.

Conveniently located

Posted 04-Aug-2014
I wanted a hotel near Union Square. This hotel is within walking distance to the cable cars, bus lines, and shopping center. I enjoyed the historic archetecture. If your are looking for a small hotel with historical charm, this is it.

Lovely boutique hotel at Union Square

Posted 04-Aug-2014
Cons: The only thing missing was bath robes!! oh and a newspaper
Loved the location- close to Union Square and Cable cars. I was attending a conference at Moscone Centre which was a short walk away. All the shopping and restaurants you want in easy walking distance.

Great location, great staff & comfortable room. Since it is an older hotel, you get some of the quirkiness that goes along with it such as bathtub drains that don't drain quite as quickly as they should, but overall, it's a great hotel with a smaller, boutique type feel. And the location makes it easy to get to wherever you want to go in San Francisco :)
