My husband and I had the most amazing experience at Hotel Griffon that I had to write this review right away. We checked out less than 24 hrs ago. I was initially skeptical staying at a small boutique hotel but right away the friendly staff proved me wrong. When we got there Olivia and John greeted us with warm smiles...

As returning hotel guests, we were treated as superbly as any hotel can treat guests. The manager and staff bent over backwards to give us a lovely room and treat us as returning "family". We were always greeting by staff upon returning. Beds, lighting, storage space, all good. For location, this hotel is tops. Near ferry building and Embarcadero, in...

From the moment I arrived at this boutique hotel, the relaxed and personal attention distinguished it. Whether with a joke, a story or a wave, the front desk staff (esp. Michsel) creates a friendly atmosphere. The room is comfortable and details like the bar of soap (with a hole to minimize waste) are just fun.

I was here for two nights in February (business). What a wonderful property! Great service at the front desk, a very nice room (impeccable wireless) ... a great stay at a great hotel. If you're looking for a nice property right in the heart of San Francisco, you'd be hard pressed i think to find something nicer!

Overall it was a good experience. I stayed for a week on business and it was more than adequate for my needs, with a good desk, free WiFi and a bunch of chargers built in.

My girlfriend and I booked a room here for Valentine's Day night. After a long day of hiking in North Bay, the big draw of Hotel Griffon was its solid reputation for customer service and food.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
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.
