“Great location, helpful staff”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

This is a quirky hotel, full of personality. It is in a great location and has very helpful and knowledgeable staff that will give you great tips of where to dine and what to see (and what to avoid) in the city. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed here on the last leg of our honeymoon, and it couldn't have been a better experience! The staff are all very friendly and accomodating, and ahead of our arrival they'd all signed a card and left a bottle of champagne in the room to congratulate us - that's a personal touch you just don't get at the big chains. The manageress was very informative regarding anything we asked about the city, from restaurant and bar recommendations to the best places to pick up a one-off bargain. The hotel is ideally located next to the Chinese quarter (opposite the gate), and a few minutes to Market Street and Italian Qtr/North Beach. Very safe neighbourhood, we quite often wandered around at night as did many other couples. Great stay, made even better by this gem of a hotel.

We spent four nights at Hotel Triton and will remember it for a long time. Excellent staff, great design and feel of the place. Wine hour (complimentary) in the evening with other guests is just one of the features that puts you, the guest first and makes you feel you belong. No corporate feel. Genuine, friendly, incredibly helpful, knowledgeable. They're interested in making your visit memorable. Excellent location for everything too. Can't recommend it highly enough.

The Hotel Triton is an awesome hotel! This coming from a slightly jaded New Yorker. The staff was very friendly and helpful and really just kind of cool. (I got a kick out of the nicknames on their staff ID's) The hotel iteslf is fun and modern and it is in a great neighborhood. Our room had a Jack Kerouac vibe that the literary snob in me loved. They had a great happy hour with sangria and wine. It was a really good experience and I would definitely stay there again!

The staff was amazing - so friendly and responsive. I felt welcomed and taken care of. The hotel has a great location and you can walk everywhere. Great decor, nice rooms, and amazing customer service. I filled out a survey afterwards on how my trip was, and received a personal email back from the Front Office Manager, commenting on the things I had said in my review (so he really read it and it wasn't a canned response!)

I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

My family just returned from the Triton feeling like VIP's! An unfortunate online booking was handled beautifully by hotel staff. We ended up staying in one Celebrity Suite (stylish on the 6th floor with city view) and one dbl/dbl room (love the new decor). The feel of the hotel is relaxed and fun. The entire staff (maids to management) was helpful and friendly.The Triton is convenient to Union Square, Chinatown, and North Beach. There are plenty of dining options within walking distance. The Triton staff is knowledgable and can make suggestions. It pays to be a Kimpton member...frequent email offers and deals on rates.

New favorite hotel in San Francisco.

Room Tip: Rooms can be small, splurge on a suite if you can.

My husband and I just stayed here for our 20th anniversary and had a wonderful time. The price for the room was a little high right now, but the French and Italians were in full force in the city, so not too many reasonable rooms available.

Upon arrival, the staff were excellent. They wished us a happy anniversary and had a complimentary bottle of champagne, chocolates and strawberries waiting. They also had a nice card signed by the staff as if we were long lost friends.

Of course they also had the usual evening wine reception with generous portions. It was a friendly atmosphere talking to other guests.

The workout room was small but clean and handy. We were up early and had no problem getting a machine (only 3).

Location is the best. You can get to where ever you want easily. Union Square is a short walk and Chinatown is steps away. The tour bus has a stop right outside the door. I would easily stay here again.
