I visited San Francisco for 7 nights and was delighted with my choice of the Taj Campton. This hotel is superbly located right by Union Square, and the moment you step inside the hotel staff go out of their way to make you feel special. As soon as I walked in they all seemed to know my name. I have brought back amazing memories of both San Francisco and the hotel, from cocktails in the bar (BRCM Martin- heaven), to the lovely cosy restaurant with amazing food (the breakfasts were outstanding), to the haven of the calm and tranquil bedrooms and probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in (softest robes imaginable - I want to buy one - please let me know where I can find Plu robes?!), to the airy fitness terrace with views over Union Square - it was all fabulous. Housekeeping even leave a little thank you note for their tip (and they do the rooms to perfection morning and night) - a really nice touch. It was a perfect choice and I am already looking for a reason to visit again.
If you are looking for views the higher floors facing Union Square are the ones to ask for. I had a Deluxe King without a view but it was perfect for me, spacious, airy and incredibly comfortable. It would be nice if the hotel offered a short complimentary use of the wifi for guests from overseas with wifi phones (I popped in to the Starbucks next door - but would have preferred to buy a coffee at the Taj whilst catching up on my e-mails). A minor complaint was that on my last night, having arrived back from the Alcatraz night cruise at about 10:30 and going for my last cocktail - a cleaner started mopping up behind me at 11:10pm (the bar closed at 11pm) not what I had come to expect after a week at this lovely hotel - but the night staff were very apologetic and stressed this would be something they wouldn't allow to happen in future.
Overall I recommend this hotel without hesitation. If you are looking for a haven of peace and luxury, with a personal touch, right in the middle of this fabulous city you can't go wrong with the Taj Campton Place.
