Overwhelmed by choices we selected the Kensington Park. We were so pleased with our choice. Best location ever, right off Union Square. We upgraded to a corner room which is advised if you want some additional space. Room was spotless, beds were very comfortable and rooms are comtemporary with an old fashioned flair. Staff were extremely helpful, friendly and very...

What's best about this hotel is its location; right on Union Square. Its in the safe neighbourhood of Nob Hill but is quite close to the notorious Tenderloin district, so easy to stray into it. Its close to everything including the tour busses and if you need to get to the airport, the BART station is also within walking distance...

We stayed here for 3 nights from 6th October. It's in the perfect location 2 minutes walk from Union Square, 5 minutes to Powell Street BART station, 5 minutes to the tram stop which runs directly to Fisherman's Wharf and 5 minutes to the Powell Street cable car start point. Chinatown is also just around the corner. The hotel is...

This hotel is in the best part of the city. In close proximity to all the best shopping and dining and transportation. One block away from the cable cars. Hotel is clean and staff is friendly and accommodating. The only criticisms i would offer this hotel is to upgrade the amenities. Hair dryer did not work, i had to buy...

We were travelling as a family (2 adults, 2 kids) so had a room with two double beds. The first room they gave us was very small and we simply couldn't fit all our luggage in it. So we asked to see if there is a bigger room which they were very helpful and gave us one that was marginally...

We stayed for one night. The location is handy for downtown San Francisco albeit a bit noisy. We found the receptionist to be helpful and really liked the concierge. The room was clean and comfortable and coffee and orange juice was available in the corridor in the morning. There was no orange juice left when we got up but we...

Travelled to SF with my family last summer June 2011 (TripAdvisor does not allow any earlier period than Nov 2011 in the drop-down menu) and opted to stay in this lovely boutique hotel. The location is good, not smacked right in the middle of Union Square with all the tourist hype yet convenient enough for intermittent stops at the hotel...

We stayed here for three nights, very nice room.. No fridge though which was a little disappointing. Bathrooms were small because it was an older room but the location made up for it, literally right around the corner from union square. Make sure to check out union street, china town and a must to eat at is Hops and Hominy...

Logistics hadn't allowed me to stay at the Kennsington Park for several years. After a four night stay at the end of September I can say that the quality of the hotel has just gotten better. The bed is the most comfortable I've ever had and the service is impeccable. The location, a block from Union Sq, gives you a...
