Reviewed 10 August 2015

The location is great for a business trip as it's in the heart of the financial district. The rooms are quite small and the sink was outside the bathroom causing the TV to be placed close to the ceiling over the sink. The walls are paper thin so you can hear anything and everything that happens in the hallway or...

Ramon S, General Manager at Hotel Griffon, responded to this review

Dear tamstoronto, Thank you for your review and candid opinion of our hotel. I am sorry to learn that you were unsatisfied with the size of our accommodations; as you may well know, we are in a historically renovated building and we did indeed have to be creative with the position of the televisions (which we feel work very well...

We stayed with Hotel Griffon the weekend of the Alcatraz Swim, 2015. My husband was swimming in the event. I called earlier in the day of our arrival to make sure they had cribs available. The man I spoke with said he would make sure the crib was in the room when we got there. We were greeted warmly on...

I have stayed at this hotel twice, for one night each both nights. Once was my boyfriend and I and another a few of us for a bachelorette party. The hotel is in a great location, very reasonable and excellent staff. The rooms are smaller but very cozy beds. I like the layout and would come back again. My one...

Reviewed 28 July 2015

I stayed for two nights for a combo work/personal trip to SF. I love the location of this hotel. It's right on the Embarcadero, close to the Ferry Building (which is one of my favorite areas in SF) but it's removed from the hustle and bustle of Market Street. It's a historic building and an older hotel, renovated in the...

Dear Mrs. Eaves, Thank you very much for the review and your comments on our hotel. I am glad that you were able to find our location and its mix of centrality yet peacefulness convenient and enjoyable.

Very small mattress not a queen size as advertised. Very small room for the high price and too much noise. Can't recommend this hotel. Good location for running the sf marathon though but expensive. Restaurant looked pretty good but didn't try it. Was hoping to have late checkout but they wouldn't allow

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
