We booked this hotel for the location. It is centrally located to where we wanted to be. The reception staff were very friendly. We arrived early and were allowed to check in early. The room itself was nice- small, but the bed was very comfortable. It was extremely noisy- when looking at reviews after our stay some reviews recommended requesting... More

Comfortable, spacious room, central location, friendly and helpful staff. A funky, cool, non-standard hotel. We had a great time and would definitely stay here whenever we are in the San Francisco area.

I have fond memories of Hotel Triton as I used to stay there regularly years ago. I was surprised to learn that they recently left the Kimpton Hotel group, so no points for me. We stayed in the Jerry Garcia suite, which is a very large room and has artwork from Jerry. The good: great front guest staff, unbeatable location,... More

The hotel staff was extremely helpful especially since this was my first time in San Fran. The room was decorated very quirky but that's what I liked about it - not your average stark hotel room. The room and other parts of the hotel were always clean too.

Staff is very welcoming and the rooms were extremely clean with very comfortable beds! It's also in the perfect location in downtown! Location is in the center of the financial district and near major retail stores, making travel and leisure very easy and enjoyable.

First, let me tell you the two things I didn't like about the Hotel Triton: my room (522) had a window heat/air unit in the only window; and it was on the alley side and the alley was extremely busy all night long (generally sounded like a garbage truck was emptying dumpsters all night long except there are no dumpsters)....

This is a fun place to stay. It's reasonably priced and in a convenient part of the city. We booked a superior room and had a nice view of dragons gate. It's an older building but it has been brought up to date nicely.

Hotel Triton was great for our one night stay in San Francisco. The location is fantastic, with the Dragon's Gate (entrance to China Town) right outside your door. The tourist tour buses also stop right outside the entrance, making it easy to catch to other touristy parts of the city. The room we had (a double) was small, but that's... More
