Gorgeous view from our rooms, breakfast buffet was our favorite buffet so far. We enjoyed all of the interesting collections from famous Koreans this reminded us of a Korean style Hard Rock Hotel.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 January 2017

The Kensington Park Hotel is centrally located near Union Square. Just next to the cable cars and in walking distance to Chinatown, North Beach, Nob Hill and much more. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. The staff is very helpfull.

The lobby is your first indication that the hotel may be a little off the norm. This is definitely an old hotel and that's okay. However, some improvements would make a lot of difference. The rooms are smallish as are the bathrooms and a little worn. The bed and pillows were good! Our room had some noise coming from the...
