Old hotel

Posted 06-Feb-2016
An old hotel that is not being up kept very well. The room was small, it had a window but an air conditioner sat in it and was sealed to the window via packing and duct tape. There is a desk with a newer chair that doesn't fit into the older desk so one can't quite walk around the bed. The first night I had a neighbor that liked the tv loud and watched late into the night beginning again early in the morning. The second night it was the sound of trucks backing up all night from behind the building - either the trucks were dumping something or something was being dumped into the trucks. Something loud, like recycling. The bed was comfortable and the staff was as helpful as they could be with limited resources.

I checked in and out within 20 minutes.

Pros: Dated, dirty, and disgusting!
Cons: Major renovations and soap/water.
I did not stay long enough to have an experience beyond my initial disgust.

Historic hotel

Posted 02-Feb-2016
I was having my bathroom remodeled and the management company put me up in the hotel for seven nights while they completed the work. Hotel Whitcomb is a nice historic hotel. No room service. Not in a great part of the city. Great access to public transportation. Walls are very thin. Room was large for San Francisco standards.

Nice Place with lots to do. Very convenient to shopping. Did not like there was no coffee maker or refrigerator in my room. Would stay again. Not a fan of this making me write a book.

Across the street from the Orpheum Theatre.

Nice clean room comfortable bed and it was quiet. Never heard any noise in the hallway or doors closing. I would definitely stay here again and price was good for San Francisco. the only thing is no coffee maker, fridge or microwave. There's a Starbucks right next door. Very central location for the city.

Great location.

Posted 28-Jan-2016
Pros: The location and the staff were excellent. The room was ample and comfortable.
Cons: Windows dirty, smell of mold in the bathroom. The room was a large enough to fit a comfortable chair but there wasn't one.
Location: Very convenient to metro, opera, concert hall, and Ferry. Unfortunately, the neighborhood is a congregation place for homeless.
Good value, but the neighborhood would be uncomfortable for a single woman.

Close to public transportation.

Posted 28-Jan-2016
Pros: Location and staff.
Cons: Updating the outlets in the rooms.
Location: Because the hotel is on the Bart line and the Muni line there is not a sight in San Francisco you can not get to.
We were able to get to a surprise party the night we arrived using the Bart system which took us directly to our hotel. The hotel is beautiful if a little old. The only minor problem we had was with scarcity of electrical outlets. The staff was very friendly and obtained taxis for us when asked.

Staff was very helpful. I liked the atmosphere of the hotel main areas. With public transportation the hotel is close enough to everything yet still removed. The little restaurants around the hotel made for an enjoyable stay.

Poor service. Unsafe, lack of security.

Posted 25-Jan-2016
Pros: It looks nice inside and with better housekeeping and security could be a nice hotel.
Cons: Housekeeping, security, water pressure and temperature.
Location: In the heart of the homeless in San Francisco.
There was blood on my bed sheets when I first came in. Also, late nigh took a stroll down the hallways to find homeless sleeping within.
