The rooms are clean and comfortable enough for a few nights. Not great is that there is no laundry room and also no coffee maker in the room, instead offering overpriced itemised dry cleaning and a Starbucks on the ground floor instead. It is however cheap if booking direct with the hotel so it's good enough. Decent for a solo...

Courteous at check in, professionally staffed, great bar/restaurant with friendly greetings and service. Manager always friendly, helpful, professional and great sense of humor. I enjoy my stay! I Highly recommend a historical stay at Hotel Whitcomb!

I am usually VERY FAIR in my reviews of places I stay, and I would never negatively review a hotel, restaurant, or attraction unless they REALLY made me question why I even made the effort to reserve. Hotel Whitcomb is probably THE WORST experience I've had at a hotel not named Motel 6 - they advertise as history and luxurious,...

The loud music from the wedding immediately underneath our floor, and the pot smoke pouring into our room, made us check out of the hotel at 10:30pm. Awful. The manager Denis said that there was no way we could hear the party music in our room, so that makes him a liar. Who wants to give money to a hotel...

This hotel works well in that the location is central San Francisco and just steps away from the subway and bus lines. The hotel hearkens back to the day of Old School Hotels starting with the nice lobby and smartly dressed staff. The standard king room was nice. Clean. Excellent mattress and quiet. WiFi and Room Safe. I would always...

4 of us stayed in one room at this hotel for 3 nights from 17th April. We Found the room very clean and comfortable, yes it's old but I'd say vintage rather than old but was more than adequate with a large tv and 2 comfortable beds and plenty of storage for clothes, it also had a free safe in...

This is hardly the hotel's fault but I failed to research the area that it is in. A walk from Powell BART station is one of the most unsettling I've ever encountered, and this in broad daylight on a Saturday afternoon. I would recommend anyone booking here to get an uber from the airport and not doing that walk. From...

My family and I stayed at this hotel. We had reserved 2 nights but ended up canceling one night before hand. As soon as we got to the hotel, the hotel looks old and dirty. I was desperate and wanted to leave ASAP we couldn't leave the same day cause they were not willing to return the deposit or money...

The hotel is amidst the part of San Fran that has not been hit by gentrification.The guards situated outside appear to hold non customers from wandering in from the outside. Once inside, you can tell it was beautiful in the day, but without maintenance, beauty fades. The hotel's history speaks to you through every nook and cranny of this hotel....

This is a review of the hotel, not its surroundings although people should be aware that the location is not the most savoury with many homeless people around although they did not approach us in any way. The hotel clearly has many of its original features with wood panelling, brassware and huge mirrors everywhere. The rooms are clean and provide...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
