just spent the last 3 days in SF and couldn't have been happier about our choice of Hotels. Great location with a friendly and helpful staff. Our room was very quaint and the bed very comfortable.

We stayed at Kensington Park few days on vacation. The location is perfect, at Union Square, with amazing restaurants and shops. The room is small and bathroom is outdated, and it was really hard to fit 4 people in a two queen bed room. Next time I will ask for 2 double rooms. The staff was great and even being...

After spending a few days in Napa we traveled to San Francisco. I booked this hotel off of the Trip Advisor reviews I had read and was happy I did. The location for the hotel was great, right in the middle of everything, and the hotel staff was very nice. The rooms were a little small and the bathrooms were...

Stayed here on vacation, great location. Smart hotel with clean rooms. If you're visiting and want to stay in the heart of town this is close to the shops and several good restaurants.

This hotel is perfectly situated, the money you pay is worth it. All the staff were really eager to help. We have stayed here for six days, and the room was always clean. It is very handy to be close to Macy's (You know...shopping time). Thanks to TripAdvisor's reviews I have chosen this hotel. The only problem was three days...

I stayed here to save some money over my expensive conference hotel. I loved the location. But even tho it was downtown (and St Patrick's Day), my room was very quiet. I loved the perfectly made tea that is offered throughout the day in the lobby. Such a welcome treat when coming back tired to the hotel. There was also...

This is an excellent hotel which is perfectly situated opposite Macy's. The staff were very helpful and knowledegeable, the room was perfectly clean and spacious, and the complimentary toiletries of a perfect quality. Sadly my trip to San Francisco was wrecked by wet weather, but when I return in the future, I will stay here.

We got into San Francisco about an hour before check-in. I had called ahead and requested a quiet room due to past reviews read on Trip Advisor. The desk clerk indicated that the hotel was full to capacity and that we'd need to wait until 3pm to check in. As we walked away with our bags he said that he...

On business in San Francisco and missed the so-called 'reduced rate' rooms at the conference hotel near the Moscone Centre. I then took it as a challenge to get 4-star accommodation downtown for sub-$200 a night.The Kensington Park did not disappoint on any level. My room was clean, spacious and had a very comfortable bed. Decor might appear slightly dated...
