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.

San Francisco - Day 1
On the plane heading towards San Fran with sporadic bursts of turbulence to make it a little more exciting!!!...
Arrived to typical CA traffic but finally made it to the hotel. Highlight of the hotel room was the sexy leopard skin bathrobe! Grrrrrrr ....
Walked to Union …
... Got back by 11:45 and then went and had some lunch the Chowder Hut Grill at Fisherman's Wharf. Wendy had the crab melt and I had the spicy fried fish sandwich. We took our time getting down to pier 33 for our alcatraz ferry. Man, Alcatraz! The audio tour was brilliant. Your life was over if you ever went here. The slogan was, break the rules, go to prison. Break the prison rules, go to Alcatraz. Weird contrast with the audio ...
We walked down to the docks and checked out the Bay Bridge. This bridge is the widest bridge in the world. At 78m across, Americans still struggle to fit.
In 2000 when I was here last with the family, somehow I missed out on going to Alcatraz but I do recall ‘select’ members of the family actually going. ...
... After we got to the mainland, it was time for brunch, since we sort of missed breakfast! We ate at Boudin Bakery…..Oh my - soooo good! In 1849, the Boudin family struck culinary gold. Wild yeasts in the San Francisco air had imparted a unique tang to their traditional French bread, giving rise to “San Francisco sourdough French bread.” Who knew??? I am pretty sure we will eat there again before going home!
Next on the agenda was the ...
... smiling people. To this day Australia bound girl (at the time still lounging in Bali) thinks I was hallucinating from the stress but if she wants to prove me wrong she is on her own!
The cherry on the top of this little travel adventure was my homeward bound 8 hour layover in Hong Kong. Although there were 3 SFO flights on the same airline that had open seats I couldn’t go early even if I paid some ungodly penalty ...
