    Different decor than your usual spot which almost makes it worth the price alone.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Triton - A Kimpton Hotel San Francisco

    Hotel Triton - trendy and centrally located


    We had a great experience at Hotel Triton. It was in a very central location and had a lot of character...which is very rare in city hotels. Rooms were clean and neat (but very small). The hotel staff were always friendly and eager to help. Plus, they had happy hour every day from 5:30 to 6:30 where you could enjoy free beer or wine....what more can you ask for after a full day of running around!!

    Beware of inner rooms


    We stayed in the King Triton room which is one of their specialty rooms. The windows looked out to an inner courtyard which was not attractive and made the room fairly dark. The hotel clerks wouldn't recommend a Chinatown retaurant and generally offered little help. Trendy in a dingy slumming it kind of way.

    Never stay here!


    We had a bad experience at this hotel. The room was nice, the service was not. When we checked in at 3:00 in the afternoon, there was a tray of half eaten food outside our room that someone had left earlier in the day. We called room service to have them remove it. We went out to dinner and when we got back to the hotel (around midnight), the tray of food was still there. In addition, we were promised a $20 voucher toward parking, however, they refused to give it to us. The manager was surly and belligerent. It's too bad, the hotel is in a good location and the decor is nice, the service was just unacceptable.

    Loved the Cute and Funky Triton!


    I checked the reviews here first before booking and it was all the wonderful things everyone said it was! The lobby and rooms were really decorated in a cool, hip way. It really made us feel like we were on vacation. The staff was really pleasant and helpful. The location was great, we were able to walk to many different areas. I loved the sense of humor thrown in from the artwork in the halls to the little rubber duckies. The rooms were small but I hear most are in that area. The bathrobes were great and their were plenty of towels and everything else needed. I would recommend and hope to visit the Hotel Triton again!

    Hotel Triton is THE BEST!


    If only every city had a Hotel Triton! I don't know where to start raving about it: the lobby and room decor are great (OK, the rooms are small, but so what? are you going to San Francisco to sit in your hotel room?), the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, the afternoon happy hour and evening fresh cookies are lovely, the morning room service comes from a French bistro so you can order one of those huge cups of cafe au lait, the mini-bar in your room sells rubber duckies for the bath, there is artificial grass on top of the air conditioning unit outside your window (so your first view in the morning is of greenery), the note pad next to the phone in your room turns out to be Post-It notes (incredibly useful!), and the card explaining telephone rates lists room-to-room calls as "freebie," local calls as "free," toll-free calls as "also free," and calls using a phone card as "free of course." Good-looking, clever and a sense of humor -- everything I looked for (and finally found) in a husband -- and now in a hotel, too! I will never stay anywhere else in SF.

    Nice and Hip


    Friendly staff and clean bright room. Windows that open---nice touch. Fun decor yet geared to hipness. Don't think I'd make my parents stay here, yet, if you're into something different, any age would enjoy it. Right across the street from Chinatown gate so I walked to 2 good restaurants. Never did the free wine at 5 but it was always there each nite I whisked by it. Very nice! Again, different, but a nice change from normalness.

    Funky San Francisco!


    I stayed at the Triton hotel over a very busy weekend in February. The location is fantastic, the best. It's an easy hop over to the cable cars, and right across from the chinatown gate. The hotel restaurant is very good. It's a great boutique san fran hotel. If you want something unique, urban, funky and fun this place is for you! The hotel has a sense of humor, your room comes with rubber duckies. Some of the rooms are tiny though. But no worries, just ask for a different one. The staff was very accomodating. Great choice!

    Hotel Triton Rocks!


    Hotel Triton has lots to offer. Whenever I am in San Francisco, I stay there, which is several times per year. The designer suites are totally unique. The Santana Suite is our favorite, and a MUST for any Carlos Santana fans. Our favorite bellhop, Donovan, works there. And the general manager can be found on site easily if you have any needs or questions. These people actually care if you enjoy your stay. Add the convenient location, plus a huge parking garage rightacross the street. Uptight folks wont like this upbeat, unique, and fun San Francisco experience kinda place.

    Very so-s0


    This hotel got good reviews, but I did not care for it. The best thing was the location in the heart of Union Square, near the Chinatown gate. I should have been nervous when the room rate was quite low. I guess you get what you pay for. There was a crack in the sink. The tub needed cleaning. And it didn't like the fact the door had a key rather than a more secure card operated lock. The knob on the heating and cooling unit was broken. The hotel in general looked like it needed a good renovation. A bellboy accidently knocked on my door with someone else's luggage. The lobby was sort of small and not that impressive. Next time, I'm in San Francisco, I won't go for a bargain and will stay in a great hotel like the W.

    Feels right in San Francisco


    My hsuband & I stayed here for a weekend trip recently. We really enjoyed the stay. Definitely a change of pace from usual Marriott or Hyatt, but it just fit in San Francisco. Enjoyed the complimentary happy hour & music in the lobby. Purchased some of the EO Bath Products they use & love them! We'll probably return to this hotel the next time we're in San Francisco (if Hotel Monaco is not available).

I was told there was a bus that stopped at the top of the mountain, that it would take me back to Sausalito where I could catch the bike path again, all I had to do was turn left and go back up the drive.

    So naturally, I decided to go right. Because I did not want to go back ...

    8/17 Day 56 We traveled today from Crescent City CA to San Francisco CA. We came right down rte. 101 so we repeated a little of the sightseeing route we went yesterday. But that way we were able to drive pretty much straight through without sightseeing stops. Well, maybe a couple.

    About a third of our 8.5 hour trip was ocean views; another third was through redwood forest that were right on 101. The last third was ...
