I had been passing this hotel for years whenever I go to SF and I take my early morn runs through the Chinatown gate which is "right there" by the hotel. I always said I would stay here if I bring the family to town. Well it happened and could not have been more pleased w/ our stay.
Checked in for 3 days and we had a little problem w/ our room and the staff could not have been any better in getting us resettled. New room was a king on the front of the hotel and our girls stayed in a double nearby. Neither was big but both had all the "right stuff', were very cool and ultraclean.
Of course the lobby is very chic, passerbys peer in all day long as its so cool, wine from 5 to 6pm, great coffee and tea in the morning and a location that literally is in the middle of everything. GREAT shopping, lots of walkable restaurants, easy access to the street cars, trolleys, BART (Montgomery stop) and of course, Chinatown.
What made it a '5 " experience was the service. The 'Live like a local" campaign is actually a grass roots effort to identify great places the workers like to be part of locally and they had great hints on what to do, We spent a good deal of time asking directions, chatting uo the wine servers, playing w/ the cute dogs in the lobby, accessing info the whole time for hints and finally a really comfortable town car ride to the airport at a taxi rate.
Loved the beds and linens, the bathroom shampoo and conditioner, the $10 raid the mini bar certificate, the easy and free wifi for being a Kimpton's member and the family felt pampered, We had fun and we stayed in a very COOL place so Dad had made a great choice....
