Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled near Fisherman's Wharf, the Kimpton Alton Hotel captures the hearts of guests with its boutique ambiance and cozy, nostalgic rooms equipped with unique features like record players. While travelers are charmed by the attentive staff and complimentary services such as happy hour and morning coffee, some express concerns over noise and views from their rooms. The hotel's cleanliness and convenient location earn high marks, though the value proposition is occasionally marred by additional fees for amenities and parking. Despite this, the Kimpton Alton's allure remains strong for those seeking a lively San Francisco experience.

What a delightful experience! Upon arrival with my two kids, they were immediately given coloring books, which was a thoughtful touch. My wife and I thoroughly really enjoyed dining at the hotel restaurant; the dinner menu surpassed our expectations. Additionally we appreciated the presence of a record player in the room, although we wish there were more music selections available at the front desk.

Very nice hotel with good services and location. We stayed there for 3 days on March 2024 while visiting San Francisco CA. The staffs are well trained and always helpful. The location of the hotel is in the center of the city, near pier 39, so it’s convenient to go anywhere.

What a wonderful hotel! Shan't stay anywhere else when visiting San Francisco. I loved the location, the cheerful and cozy ambiance, the record collection(s) and the LP player. And the in-house restaurant! It also helps that the restaurant is pet-friendly and has easy access to the sites in the Fisherman's Wharf/Cannery Warf area.

Lovely hotel with a boutique type feel to it even though it’s a big chain. Friendly team, Happy Hour every evening with free drinks and a fantastic Filipino restaurant. Free coffee every morning is a nice touch especially if you are out early before breakfast at the weekend. Rooms are modern and comfortable kept spotlessly clean.
