We made the mistake of allowing a 3 party to book this hotel for us as we were so busy and thought we could save some time. I'd honestly wished I'd taken the time out to do my own research on the place.
The Whitcomb hotel was sold to us a 'HIstoric Hotel of America' - 'historic' in the sense that it is in dire need of refurbishment. On entering the bedroom, there was a damp, musty smell. The room itself was dark and dingy - the lighting was far from sufficient, which seemed the case for the rest of the hotel - the corridors were really depressing and spooky. The room was small and the shower room was the size of a small cupboard!
We were supposed to stay duration of our visit in San Francisco, but couldn't bear the thought of being stuck in this hotel for 6 nights. We told a staff member at reception that we wish to check-out immediately as it wasn't what we had expected - he shrugged in nonchalant manner and couldn't even be bothered to enquire why we wanted to leave or even offer us a better room.
There are plenty of places that are of a higher standard than Hotel Whitcomb and situated better areas for the same price or if you splash out just a little bit more on the cash.
