Reviewed yesterday NEW

Easy walking to theaters, concert halls, civic center and shopping. Beautiful old San Francisco style interior. Rooms have all modern amenities. Great staff. Cristy at the front desk and Kazi Ahmed, Director of Guest Services, were especially kind and helpful to me.

While checking in I found that the hotel was the venue for a Salsa Festival. Music playing all around and people in dancing and happy mood, it was a very nice welcome. I was astonished by the grandeur of the hotel. Nice chandeliers, detailed colorful carpets, marble overlook at the mezzanine level. The guest services manager Varun, assisted me in...

Guest Services Manager, Varun Kaushal takes pride in providing best customer service. The room is clean, good space and quiet. Very welcoming staff, well mannered and courteous. Must say it is a good location, close to downtown, reasonably priced and great historical experience to boot.

I travel for business and stayed at Hotel Whitcomb for about 13 days. Highly recommend it! It is in the heart of San Francisco walking distance to all shopping. I have to mention Varum who is the Front Manager and thank to His service and being attentive that I will definitely visit again. Thank You Varum!

I didn't feel comfortable here. My room was not very clean - I got to know the previous guests through the many different-coloured strands of hair I found in the shower, as well as a couple of stickers, labelled "Sealed for your safety" stuck against the walls of the shower. The hallway reeked of marijuana, tobacco, and beer. I will...

Please stay away from this hotel. I woke up to a bed bug crawling on my bed, along with blood stains on my sheets. I refused another room and immediately relocated to a different hotel. The Hotel Whitcomb is now declining to reimburse me for my very expensive laundry bill. I have a picture as evidence of the bed bug...

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.
