Great Location close to Union Square

Posted 16-Dec-2014
Location: Sears Fine Dining around the corner on Powell was our "go to" restaurant because of the the delicious food, great service and festive ambiance!
Very impressed with this quaint historic Elks Lodge hotel! Although the Elks lodge is completely separate from the hotel now, there is great history in this building and you can feel it. We had a wonderful stay there.

Perfect location.

Posted 15-Dec-2014
Pros: Location and friendly staff
Cons: Can't think of a thing
Location: Shop, people watch, right by cable car, walking distance to many good restaurants. Walking distance to China Town.
There was a lot going on in San Francisco while we were there...demonstrations, Santa com and shoppers. We were in the middle of it and it didn't hinder our fun. Great staff, comfortable room. We've stayed there 8 years and loved it.

Wonderful hotel

Posted 03-Dec-2014
Pros: Location and staff
Cons: More soap in room. One small piece is not enough for shower and basin.
Location: Shopping and many restaurants very, very close.
The Kensington Park Hotel is perfectly located 1/2 block off of Union Square. The hotel staff is excellent. The hotel is older and has many charming characteristics. Our room faced Nob Hill and was very quiet. Would stay here again.

Great location. Good deal. Small rooms but huge bathrooms. Wish we had a mini fridge. Cool view from 6th floor.

Nice hotel busy street

Posted 23-Nov-2014
Cons: Parking conditions. Also serve a few pastries with coffee.
The hotel was being refurbished. The parking conditions are horrible. They offered valet but it costs almost $45.00 per day. The valet attendant was very nice and helpful. Room was nice and clean.

Located right by Union Square

Posted 22-Nov-2014
Pros: Location, safe feeling
Cons: The drape is in dire need of cleaning. We noticed when closing the window that it is quite soiled.
Location: Shopping, shopping, shopping!! Easy access to desired points of interest and transportation.
Whenever in San Francisco, always stay at Kensington for the location, price and great customer service.
