This hotel has a great lobby with the detail in decorations that has been lost in the newer hotels. The rooms are small, but that is not uncommon for older hotels in big cities. If you decide to stay, Join the Kimpton Karma program on line to get free internet and a few other perks. Takes a few minutes, but worth it. They have an interesting program that gives you a $10.00 bar or food voucher per night (Except last night of stay) if you forgo maid service. You can do it for any amount of nights. Staff is friendly and accommodating. There is a cable car stop right outside and a very stylish doorman who will hail a cab for you. The Powell street BART station is 4 blocks away, so you can access it easily. If you are flying in it is a good option from SFO - particularly in rush hour traffic. BART is $8.95 vs a cab at $55.00. Bar on the 21st Floor rocks on weekends but has great night view of city There are lots of hotel choices in San Francisco, but if the deal at this hotel is right, it is a great place to stay

This is a large and beautiful Hotel. For being in a very busy/loud city, I slept very well. This Hotel had a friendly staff and knowledgeable Concierges. I loved the location of this Hotel to Union Square which equals fantastic shopping and restaurants. Starbucks is downstairs on the corner for a quick breakfast. The first day we arrived, we dropped our luggage in our room and then left the hotel, walked a couple feet and literally hopped on the cable cars. I felt safe at this location both day and night. I would stay here again. 3 stars for the size of the room and cost for such a small room and the $30 a day for the roll away bed for our teenage daughter. There wasn’t an iron in my room which was frustrating the next morning when I needed one. I would also like to see more toiletry items such as shower caps, Qtips, etc.

The Sir Francis Drake Hotel has a pleasant but modest facade. The interior however is a different kettle of fish. Stylish & quite beautiful with perhaps the best location in San Francisco for the tourist. The downside is that the room we had was quite small with limited storage space. However, on a city break, I feel that most visitors will accommodate this. Just one final word, the Starlight Bar ( I think this is the correct name), has both an impressive drinks menu, as well as quite spectacular aerial views of the City. Recommended.

Noise, noise, and more noise. I'm laying on my unusually firm need at 4am once again awoken by the sound of a garbage truck. At 2AM it was the sound of a siren. At midnight it was my neighbour's hacking cough. Single pane windows and paper thin walls. Unacceptable at any hotel especially one at this price point.
