Arrived on Gay Pride Day 2013 - not the best day to drive into San Francisco. We were recommended to try Kimpton Hotels by local friends in the USA. This is not a beige boring place, we loved the colour reflecting the fun and vibrant city we had just arrived in. This hotel is a refurbished old hotel, with a...

It is a bit quirky but not bad. The room smelled funny (cigarettes perhaps, also there were dogs wandering around the hotel so perhaps that's the reason). Also my bed was right under the air-con unit. Even though the fan/unit was switched off, unfortunately it still let in some ambient freezing cold air which gave me a head-cold every night....

I must say the bed quality was great. I slept like a log. Pillows also great. Hotel was a bit quirky, but its San Francisco for heavens sake! Great location, walking everywhere highly recommended. I would stay again.

Having stayed at a number of different hotels in San Francisco, and a number of Kimpton properties across the US, I thought the Triton would be up my alley. We received a very upbeat and cheerful e-mail from the front office manager a few days before arriving. We were told that "we plan to rock your world with our service"....

The Hotel Triton is in an excellent location in SF--striking distance to Union Square shopping, Chinatown, and the Financial District. We actually walked almost everywhere, including AT&T Park (about 20 min), Hayes Valley (about 15 min), and the Haight (about 25 min). It's very convenient. We chose this hotel because we are fans of Kimpton hotels in general (particularly the...

Im not sure i can figure out what the Kimpton 'standard' is? I am new to Kimpton, trying their properties around the country. I was not impressed with this property at all.... The location is good.

I was lucky enough to stay at Hotel Triton during my girlfriends business trip to San Francisco. For two weeks I woke up in the same hotel room and developed an intimate awareness of the amenities on offer. The room was cozy and surrounded in wallpaper strewn with excerpts from Jack Kerouac's 'On the Road'. Our bed was a great...

The hotel had excellent facilities, great character and an absolutely brilliant location. Our room was on a high floor and faced inward so there was none of the external noise mentioned in other reviews. The staff was helpful and I'm a sucker of complimentary newspapers. Worth a second visit.

A nice welcome gift, a small but fun room with character, friendly yet in-obsequious service, plus all the usual amenities from Kimpton hotels--good internet, wine reception, local papers, robes, etc. Theme is rock and roll and beat.
