South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.

The room was comfortable and very well appointed and decorated. However the shower/bath was a bit lacking for what I would expect at this kind of hotel, and having only a single mirror over the sink in the main part of the room was a bit underwhelming as well. The location is n

I was traveling for business, and I didn't check in til 8pm or so, and I was pleasantly surprised to be given a room with a bay view. The room itself was nice. The wifi was password-free, it just worked (on two devices I had with me).

If I had received a room with a more shut-

We arrived at the Hotel Griffon at the end of a long road-trip, and I have to say it was the perfect finishing stop.

The staff were amazing, whilst we were checking in, staff were on hand straightaway to help us with our luggage and get us settled in.

Our room was spacious, cle

I love the Hotel Griffon! I stayed for a week on a work trip, and the staff is incredibly helpful. They've gone out of their way to help prepare a room early for me on multiple occurrences, and are always really prompt with any requests. Having a fantastic restaurant located with

I will be staying here with my teenage daughter in October. Is it easy and safe to walk around to most general sightseeing places or is there public transport close by to use?
Yes it's safe and close to many of the local attractions.

Do all rooms have a standard closet?
The closets are as tiny as the rooms are - probably adequate for short term stays.

How much is parking (nearby or valet)? We would like to factor that in to the cost of the stay.
It was a little bit confusing because when I first went there I checked their website and it sounded like there would be parking available, as if you could get a pass with your room(?) but when I arrived I as informed that the only option the hotel offered was a valet service that seemed very expensive (to me). However there was overnight street parking available--possibly not the best choice, as long as you were prepared to move the vehicle before 8 AM. A friend had lent me their car, and so that worked quite well for me. It is definitely a consideration (the associated price of parking), but generally I take an Uber to and from the airport and use the MUNI or CalTrain public transit if I need to, but typically I walk everywhere on these business trips. YMMV

"My room on the second floor at the end of the hall ended up being noisy. Not sure if this is the case for all of their rooms."
"All the rooms are good...each an individual delight..."
"Don't know if any of the rooms have the bay view, but that would be great"
"Room 402 was newly renovated and quiet (queen size bed)."
"We were on the top floor facing the Bay Bridge and it was beautiful. Very little traffic noise. I love that the rooms have ceiling fans."
