We had never been to the Hotel Carlton in San Francisco, and were pleasantly surprised. We liked the location because were removed from the Union Square traffic. The HC has a cool vibe, very comfortable, friendly staff, big rooms, big closets, thoughtfully decorated and furnished....More

I loved every minute of it! So happy that I had the ability to stay in a place that had water and coffee available to me. I also loved that bed so much -- probably the best night's rest I've ever had. Loved it.

Theo is the best, super quick and easy check in. I usually stay at Hyatt House in Pleasant Hill, but will occasionally book an overnight in SF if I have business there for the day and want to explore. This was definitely my favorite spot...More

It was nice stay by kindly staff and their services. But, it was a pity that I had a little bit noisy environment sometimes in the room and also in the restaurant. Also, I wanted to have a clam chowder at breakfast, but, unfortunately not.

So we used the bart from Oakland - pretty easy. To get from San Fran it’s also the bart and then a short walk to the hotel. Sorry I can’t be more specific but I’m not a great navigator. I just remember the whole process... More
