    Whilst room was small it was a good standard. Free wine tasting was a good touch. Very convenient to City centre.

    Nothing too much bother for the staff who were always helpful. Small conferences held at the the hotel yet this never effected the hotels service. The 'happy hour' in the hotel bar in the early evening with some free wine and cheap delicious bar food was a great start to the evening. Some building renovation work currently in progress - no effect to customers when we were staying. Highly recommended. Thenk you to the staff.

    Good

    I really liked the happy hour, but I think it should be at least 2 hours instead of 1 hour. Coffee in morning was also nice treat for "people on the go" but needs a little more attention when supplies run low. Several times coffe pot was empty or croissants were not available. Very convenient to be able to print out boarding pass free of charge. Thank You for providing that service.

    Extremely comfortable beds and centrally located...only 4 blocks from the BART Powell St. Station, trolley turnaround, Market Street Streetcar, and bus to Golden Gate Park.

    Fabulous

    I requested a room with a view on an upper floor that was quiet and we got that. Bed so comfortable and nice sheets and feather pillows.

    Our room was missing a picture on the wall, the grout in the tub wasn't completely clean and the molding at the top of the walls didn't sit flush with the ceiling and in one spot had a small crevice. Otherwise the colors of the room were beautiful and furnishings very nice. The missing picture though and lack of deep cleaning in the shower affected my feeling of "luxury" and otherwise lovely experience.

    Great location, good quality hotel, pleasant staff who told us places to avoid nearby

    A bit pricey, the rooms weren't exactly luxurious. A continental breakfast would have been nice.

    The wine offered daily at 5 pm was the best thing! It was a small touch but made us feel right at home! The beds were also amazing! The room was a decent size for a couple and looked very clean.

    We didn't like that we were charged for local calls. We didn't think there would be a charge for that. As far as location, it was ok. It is close to touristy things, but too close to the bad area of tenderloin. This made for nightly walks to be nonexistent.

    location, beds, lobby, room decor

    56$ per night to park my car.? crazy. Needs paint repair around all doors. Worn.

    Superb

    Small but delightful corner room. Quiet, on upper floor. Free wifi for kimpton members, a really nice thing. I come to sf frequently, and usually use hotwire to end up at a four star big hotel, but I might look here first if prices remained competitive.

    I was promised a new York times....

    I liked best the service, and then the decor of this hotel!

    The room was a little too warm and we couldn't turn the heat down,so we had to open the window, which is not good heat consevation.
