Historical Traveler Reviews Prescott Hotel - A Kimpton Hotel San Francisco
Loved the hotel, staff, club level - a true home away from home
THe Prescott is a true secret in the heart of san Francisco. The staff provides outstanding service making you feel so welcome and pampered.
The Club Level is a wonderful feature and again the staff at breakfast and the cocktail hour could have not made me feel more like I was "at home". Although the rooms are quaint, they are an excellent value.
Classy yet friendly
a VERY nice boutique hotel. my wife and i spent 4 nites there over the christmas holidays. we highly recommend the club floor-it's worth the bucks if only for the happy hour pizza. had a king room which is advisable-the rooms are "european" here. postrio, the hotel restaurant, was excellent-zagat was wrong. the staff was extremely good-my business is as a vendor to the hotel trade-this hotel is way more courteous and professional than most. not stuffy, nice people, small hotel-what's not to like?
The Prescott Hotel...Nice Place to Stay.
Nice hotel...Great location...Friendly and helpful staff...Nice, stylish and clean rooms...Really enjoyed the intimate atmosphere.
Prescott Hotel - A Gem
We just recently stayed at the Prescott Hotel and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The location couldn't be better and the staff is so friendly and accommodating...they make your stay such a pleasant experience. We were told by the front desk that the rooms were scheduled to be redone in a fresher mode with Frette sheets and new comforters. The Club Level is a MUST. It's worth every penny, especially if there are two of you travelling. We will stay at the Prescott every time we are in San Francisco!
This hotel is all hype. Our room was small and faced an alley across which other windows faced ours and were so close that our curtains had to remain drawn. The furniture and decor were cheap, and the AC was noisy. Though advertised, the room price did not include breakfast.
Also, online booking indicated a free "upgrade" to the best available room, however, the clerk refused to honor our request even though she told us better rooms were available (for $30 more). One can do much better in SF.
Great find in SF. Good location near Union Square, rooms quite small but very comfortable, service excellent. Recommend upgrading to club rooms for the breakfast/evening lounge; also avoid rooms at the front which can be a little noisy.
Relaxing at the Prescott
My wife and I spent 3 relaxing nights at the Prescott. Very classy in a low-key fashion. The Club level is worth the extra cost. Good location and helpful staff. I would return.
Prescott Hotel is a Gem!
We stayed at the Prescott Hotel a few weeks ago and I can't say enough
great things about the service and location. The bellman (Mike) gave us
his favorite restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and he
was right on the money with every recommendation. The hotel is very
small, and with that comes the feeling that everyone who is staying
there really counts. We stayed in a king suite and it was roomy, and
very nice although the fabrics and general decor seemed old fashioned
and a bit on the dark side. Otherwise, I can't think of anything else
that wasn't up to par. It was a great find, and I'll definitely stay
there again and again.
Great boutique hotel
Friendly and helpful staff--The concierge floor is a must---drinks and hor d'oerves in the late afternoon and an extended continental breakfast in the AM.. The rooms are small, but well furnished.
Good location--2 blocks to Union Square. Next door to Postrio's--Wolfgang Puck's restaurant.
For those who ranted neglected to remember that they are staying at a "boutique" hotel. They seemed to have complained all too much about the size of the rooms. They obviously had not travelled to Europe before thus not knowing the quintessential essence of staying in a small & lovely hotel. Perhaps big Americans do need big Las Vegas style rooms. For those who raved, it was all about the club level and the frills. A nice stay does not entirely depend on the size of the accomadations or the free food but the charm of the place. The personality of the Prescott is what shines. Everytime I travelled back to the Prescott, the staff remembers me by name because I took the time out to get to know them by name. Next time you travel, smile a little and I guarantee, the other person always will smile back.

We walked past the morgue to the main cell house where we got given a set of headphones for our audio tour guide. Walking around the cells and the prison was incredible. We could see where the famous escape took place when 3 inmates carved holes in their cells and climbed up the pipes and made their way across the bay. We also seen ...

After a bit of a well needed sleep in, at about 11:00am we decided to head down to Mission District: that is, the home of Latin America.We were told about this place by a local. It was about a 30minute walk. We had done some research and I let my mum know what we planned to do . Carol and I knew that it was an area with awesome things to see - especially ...

I could glimpse inside a couple of them and saw the spectacular views to Alcatraz through their windows. I spoke to a man going into his house and he agreed that moving house is a nightmare!
I walked up and back down Lombard Street which I ...
... keep out fingers crossed for our tour tomorrow, where we will depart the city over it. We then took a meandering stroll back along the waterfront to Fisherman's wharf. Now that it was early afternoon, the crowds had gathered and it was bustling with tourists, street performers, jiggers, cyclists and locals out for a Saturday afternoon wander. Crowds lined the streets, emerging from restaurants with steaming bread bowls of creamy crab chowder - the local fish soup (no thanks!) ...
