The Kensington Park is an older hotel, and it's clean but dated. The beds and linens are comfortable and the windows open. We were there for New Years, so the lack of air conditioning wasn't a problem. It is a non-smoking building, but the building houses the Elks lodge (which is a private club), and apparently they can still smoke in there; so at times you can smell a faint amount of smoke from the shared ventilation. There is no in room safe, and the bathroom is pretty dated.
The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful, and there is tea and sherry in the lobby every evening, with some live music which is nice. It was our anniversary and they really tried to make it nice for us, and they even dropped off a complementary bottle of wine.
The Location is amazing, right at Union Square, across from Macys, and surrounded by other amazing hotels and high end shopping. If you are going to go for a walk just don't go south of Market street, as it can get pretty sketchy.
It is right next door to the Farallon Restaurant if you like seafood. Checkout their $6 Happyhour!
