Stayed here for 4 nights on business. The hotel is old but is being refurbished. I was initially offered one of the old, un-refurbished rooms and unfortunately the window didn't close properly. I alerted the hotel staff and they quickly found me another room - this time one of the refurbished ones. The room itself was quite small but there...

The hotel staff is helpful, accommodating, and friendly. My check-in process was seamless. Clearly, the building is older, but the room where I stayed was recently renovated. If you are looking for a palatial suite, this is not your hotel. Though on the small size, the room was clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. No space is wasted and is put...

Loved Hotel Cartwright, a sweet boutique style hotel in a great location. Recently renovated, it is a small room but we felt more cosy than claustrophobic. Was super happy with our whole stay. Staff were friendly and super helpful. We felt safe and secure even though there is no safe in the room. The diner on the corner is a...

The hotel is very warm and friendly, a few meters from UNION SQUARE. The lobby is very cozy and the rooms comfortable although the bathroom is a bit small. In the area there are many restaurants with a lot of good comics at low cost

The Cartwright Hotel in San Francisco provided a wonderful value, comfortable stay with a friendly staff, in a charming, newly-renovated environment that maintains an old-west type feel but with modern amenities and design. I highly recommend.

Very satisfied with accommodation. Our expectations were guarded given the old, historic nature of the building, but we found it well maintained overall. To our delight, the rooms are being renovated and we got one of the completed ones (Room 711). The rooms are quite small, but the decor, furnishings and layout made it quite comfy. The baht is tiny,...

The hotel seemed to run out of hot water mid morning... so plan on taking a shower early or late on the day. Other than that, room was clean (small 12x12), bed and pillows were very nice & i appreciated a variety of pillows (soft & firm).
