    Historical Traveler Reviews The Kensington Park Hotel San Francisco

    OK and cheap

    from

    The hotel is situated perfect: Only 1 minute from Union Square, the cable cars and lots of busses, 5 minutes form the metro and BART. Most rent-a-car companies are just around the corner. There is no breakfast at the hotel - but a lot of breakfastplaces around the corner. The room was clean and ok, but there was some trash (and a 5 $ tip) from the last guest... Therefor the 1. impression was quite bad! But that was the only negative thing we can mention. Another positive: the price - we booked on ------------- and payed 85 $ (july) for a spacious room - with view to the next hotel. I would not like to pay more, since we do not stay much time on a hotel.

    Filthy, Filthy, Yuck!

    from

    We stayed there for 2 nights. As soon as we got into the hotel it was so dark. We were so disappointed to see the room. Its sooo small and the carpet is filthy. YUCK! We have no choice but to stay 2 full days. The bathroom has no exhaust fan and the shower cap is so old. The sink was super small. If you are thinking of staying in this hotel my suggestion is don't "IT'S FILTHY"

    Loved it!! Very charming

    from

    We stayed at the Kensington Park for 7 nights and loved it. Our room was so charming as was the lobby. The concierge (Bob) was so helpful and so pleasant. The location is great. Transportation on the corner. It was nice having the Post Theater right in the hotel. We saw the Buddy Holly story and it was wonderful. We will definitly stay at the Kensington Park on our next visit to SF and we will recommend it to others. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

    Great stay

    from

    I found the hotel to be very charming and a great location. To be able to travel on bart and then walk to the hotel and to be in the heart of union scare was great. The room were small but very clean and decorated with the manor of the hotel. thanks for a great stay.

    Wonderful Hotel in the Heart of Union Square San Francisco

    from

    Lovely room--comfortable bed. Staff very friendly and accomodating.

    There must be better....

    from

    Stayed for 5 nights, facilities were lacking and the whole place was very dark and tired. Complementary coffee facilities were awful. This hotel is definitely not worth the money. Its only good point is its location, close to union square.

    Just The Best!

    from

    I've been a loyal return guest to the Kensington Park for many years and couldn't recommend it more highly. It's classy, cozy, perfectly located and just sooooooo San Francisco. I consider this little gem my home away from home and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else at any price.

    I wouldn't stay there again.

    from

    The room we had was small. The place has an overall dirty or dingy look. In the fitness center, both machines were broken. The promised weather forecasts were never delivered to our room. They have free sherry in the lobby from 4 - 6 PM. Rather cheesy. The staff is nice enough, but this hotel felt tired....

    . . . a genuine gem!!

    from

    This is our favorite place to stay on S.F. It's location is wonderful, as it's right in the heart of the Union Square area, with most shopping and dining within walking distance. The remodel was excellent except for the enormous rate increase - BUT have become more reasonable, and you could not find a warmer, more comfortable place at this value ($110/ night + parking). If you are looking for a genuine gem in the "City" in the middle of the action - this is the place. And by all means, ask Bob Finney, the Concierge, for restaurant suggestions - he's never let us down in over 20 years!

    Well-positioned for Union Square ....

    from

    My son and I recently spent 4 nights at the Kensington Park Hotel as it was recommended to us by a friend. The lobby was beautiful and full of character. Our room, #80 on 11th floor was compact, but very pleasant in a 'shabby-chic' way. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linen was of great quality. Housekeeping was diligent and a 'turn down' service was provided. All in all, our stay was enjoyable. If you like the 'buzz' of downtown, this hotel would be a good choice.

    Vi forlod Squaw Valley og Lake Tahoe, helt klar til at nyde livet i storbyen. På vejen spiste vi frokost i Napa Valley, i byen Yountville. En smuk, velfriseret lille by, som oser af vinpenge. Her var ingen tegn på jordskælvet for 14 dage siden. Kommer I til Yountville, skal I spise frokost på den autentiske franske bistro Jeanty - …

    ... covers all the areas I've wanted to go very well, although sometimes it is really crowded. The cable cars are great fun and it's interesting watching the drivers (grips) work the big levers and pedals. The cable moves at a constant 9 miles per hour and the individual cars grip or release the cable to move or stop. I bought a 3 day pass that covers all public transport and I'm certainly getting my money's worth!

    ... the Painted Ladies themselves! Hint; they are not worth the time. First destination achieved, it was off to Lombard Street to see "the most crooked street in the world". It would have been great we are sure, if Muni didn't have us going in the complete opposite direction to where we needed to go! So faithful were we to Muni that we stayed on the bus until the driver literally kicked us off because it had reached its final stop, which was in the ...

    ... task was to navigate the infamous LA traffic and make our way north towards our destination for the night, San Luis Obispo. With Josh at the wheel, Abbie riding shotgun and a Best Buy Sat Nav dictating our every move, we made our not so glorious and slow crawl out of LA. Once we were out of LA with the Sat Nav and Abbie having a falling out (turns out Abbie had put in the wrong adress), the drive along Malibu and up towards Santa Barbra was to be on the whole ...

    ... I loved the coziness of this place which reminded me of the food area at a festival. When our stomachs were filled we saw the sun set behind the Golden Gate Bridge, a view you simply can not get enough of.

    On Saturday we decided to rent a car because there are many things to see around San Francisco as well. Our first stop was the Muir woods, a small national park with some of the highest trees of the world. It was amazing to walk through the forest and see the ...
