Stayed here for 3 nights halfway through our holiday driving around California. Had a package inclusive of valet parking, so abandoned the car for our stay. Very friendly guy outside the door dealt with the car and luggage. While checking in we mentioned we'd had a pet goldfish called Fred while at another Kimpton hotel, the Marlowe in Boston, on a previous holiday. After putting our luggage in the room we set off up Taylor street and over Nob Hill to Fisherman's Wharf (a great walk & very steep in parts) & on our return found Fred junior in a bowl in our room, much to our son's delight. Very comfy room with all the things you'd expect (including the great animal print dressing gowns that Kimptons have): fridge, safe, ironing things, toiletries, snacks, coffee making etc. it's close to Union Square with all the shopping you might desire and where tour buses go from. The staff are all very courteous and helpful (great restaurant suggestion of Sear's Fine Dining) and Daniel on the desk went out of his way to look into why some of our accrued Kimpton points were missing from stays at other Kimpton Hotels. It's also a great spot on Geary Street for driving on route 1 along the coast as that begins at the end of the road!
