We loved our stay here. The hotel is very close to union square and the Powell street Bart station...very convenient. It is beautifully designed, clean, and comfortable. The staff were friendly and very helpful. I will definitely be staying in a Kimpton hotel again in the future.
This place is classy and comfortable. Well situated just two or three blocks from Union Square. Near shopping dining, cable car, trolly car and busses that will whisk you to Fisherman's Wharf and all tourist destinations.
The Mark Twain Hotel never pretends to be other than it is. It is a hotel built long before Big Macs and Starbucks. The windows open (no air conditioning) and you get a nice breeze. Newly updated (paint, carpet, etc.) the rooms are scrupulously clean! If you want a little more space, choose one of the larger rooms. Yes, there is street noise in some of the rooms, but you are in a city, after all.
The staff was helpful and breakfast items were plentiful (I grabbed a coffee, banana, and yogurt). Food in the immediate neighborhood was good. There is a cafe next door that had a line down the street during the breakfast rush (got breakfast later, around 11:30, and it was quick, and excellent.
There is a taxi stand across the street, and transit is close. I didn't rent a car as it is expensive to house them, and you don't really need one in the city (parking in S.F. can be a challenge.)
