When we checked in they told us, "We're a little quirky here!"--making us wonder what we should expect. Turns out great customer service is the norm, beginning with the friendly (and knowledgable) bellman, and extending to all the staff throughout the hotel. Our room was comfortable and cute, and what girl doesn't love an animal-print robe ready for her use? We parked our car (hefty $50/day parking fee, but that is the norm for SF) and used public transportation during our stay--found the hotel's location close to the cable cars, and within walking distance of many attractions.
An added plus is the restaurant attached to the hotel--we only ate breakfast here, but it was served quickly and was delicious!
This was our first time at a Kimpton hotel, and we will definitely return to this one!
Also--there is a SPA in the hotel, but sadly we did not have time to visit it.
