      Okay hotel, cool looking rooms, but bathroom kinda looks like a standard North American cookie cut out...something you might find in the 90's in the suburbs. Restaurant and sauna were closed for renos.

      There was a Salesforce conference going on which basically tripled room rates. Wasn't worth the money.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Monaco San Francisco - a Kimpton Hotel

      Nothing Compares!

      from

      Being avid travelers, we have stayed in many hotels in the US and Europe. Since we have stayed at the Hotel Monaco, we have compared every hotel to the HM. Nothing compares to it! It was such a memorable hotel with lots of personality. They have modern amenities, bring your CDs! It was definitely a great stay and I do recommend it to my own friends and families!

      3 nights in June 2003

      from

      Great hotel and great location - near Union Square. The Monaco is a fun & friendly place to stay but don't pay the extra for a view unless you also want the sounds of the city. Do visit Alcatraz, hire a car and do the 49 mile drive which gives you a broader flavour for SF but don't bother with Fisherman's Wharf unless you like the whole Tourist Trap thing. For food and drink there are so many good choices. Every breakfast diner was great. Sandwiches on the run for lunch are good value and you can have ANYTHING you want and eat anywhere (try a picnic in one of the many parks). Dinner in Chinatown was a bit disappointing as it wasn't as busy on a Saturday night in June as we expected so not much buzz. For a great meal though, Postrio was expensive but worth every cent. For a cheaper but entertaining meal try the Daily Grill near Union Square and sit at the bar where the grumpy bartender is everything you could expect. Smokers beware, smoking within less than 25 feet from some buildings is illegal. There are 3 cigar clubs in the city though so hunt them out for local company and good coffe (there is one on Montgomery Street). Also the beggars can be intimidating and a nuisance, ignore them and keep your wits about you (as in any big city).

      Loved the Monaco

      from

      Just got back from a 6 day stay at the Monaco. The staff was great, very warm, friendly and helpful. The room was a little small but very comfortable. The nightly wine and cheese tasting was a nice way to meet other guest and the neck/back massage helped cap off a busy day. I'm looking forward to my next visit to SF and would gladly stay here again.

      Hotel Monaco is Very Good

      from

      Was at the Hotel Monaco from 5/16-5/21/03. I found the service to be excellent. The 7th floor room was small as anticipated with unique decorating. The queen bed was extremely comfortable with a down comfortable. No view, just other room shades. The staff was accomodating and personal. Good Union Square location. Nice lobby and "living room" with complementary wine and cheese from 5-6. Decent restaurant, rather limited room service choices for lunch and dinner. I would definitely stay here again.

      Stay AWAY from here!

      from

      This hotel was misrepresented to me as having two queen sized beds in the room I rented. I was told by the front desk that all rooms have either two double beds or a king bed and a fold out couch after I arrived, paid and signed a waiver to stay the entire stay or else forfeit an additional $100. The staff is totally unaccomodating, and our deluxe room faces a brick wall. The neighborhood is questionable as well. Quite a contrast to the Hotel Monaco Chicago which is a very nice property.

      Great Accommodations

      from

      Very friendly staff and the room was very clean & it was very quiet in the room. It is also located central to many tourist attractions.

      Monaco rated #1, so we went and were sorry!

      from

      Advice online that monaco is the best/paid top dollar, got a small room with a view of nothing but a brick walled hotel, noisy geary street traffic all hours, small bathroom....nothing special, very overrated. so sorry to spend all that money, many other hotels we visited would be far superior. No service at the desk, concierge, seems like 20 somethings with attitude are running the place.

      Best Hotel in San Francisco

      from

      Truly loved this stylish hotel. The service staff was friendly and anticipated my every need. When I left it felt like I was leaving family. Will always return.

      Pampering with Style

      from

      This charming hotel is my new standard for luxury. It offers all the comforts expected in high-end hotel, but with enormous style, character and warmth. No cookie cutter rooms here!

      from

      It's worth staying here just for the fresh, warm cookies at noon and 6:00. Although I was surprised at how small the room was, the hotel made up for it with the little extras. I asked them to send a coffee maker to the room, but never used it because of the Starbucks coffee available every morning and the warm tea available every afternoon in the common room. It is also worth resting your feet at the hotel from 5:00-6:00. The nightly wine and cheese tasting included and neck/back massage that makes a long day of walking seem far away. There was even a fortune teller when we were there. The staff were young, helpful and fun. We stayed 3 nights and I would happily stay there again.

      Day 10

      For our last day in Aspen we decided to have a relaxed day of checking out the main town centre which is about 20-30km from Snowmass. They have free buses that run every 15 minutes to all of the Aspen snow fields which is an excellent service, so we caught that to town. They call Aspen 'little New York' and you can tell why as their …

      we arrived at the motel at around 1pm and as it was too early to check in, we left the car there and headed by foot towards Fisherman's Wharf. We got our first glimpse of the Golden Gate Bridge and then Alcatraz. It was about a 30 min walk and a ...

Lyal is ahead of me all the time of course, but that's okay, he usually leads the way - I knew that from Cambodia! The only great thing about arriving at Tiberon, was that it was the end of the road and we could now catch the ferry back to Fisherman's ...
