The hotel staff is helpful, accommodating, and friendly. My check-in process was seamless. Clearly, the building is older, but the room where I stayed was recently renovated. If you are looking for a palatial suite, this is not your hotel. Though on the small size, the room was clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. No space is wasted and is put...

Loved Hotel Cartwright, a sweet boutique style hotel in a great location. Recently renovated, it is a small room but we felt more cosy than claustrophobic. Was super happy with our whole stay. Staff were friendly and super helpful. We felt safe and secure even though there is no safe in the room. The diner on the corner is a...

The hotel is very warm and friendly, a few meters from UNION SQUARE. The lobby is very cozy and the rooms comfortable although the bathroom is a bit small. In the area there are many restaurants with a lot of good comics at low cost

The Cartwright Hotel in San Francisco provided a wonderful value, comfortable stay with a friendly staff, in a charming, newly-renovated environment that maintains an old-west type feel but with modern amenities and design. I highly recommend.

Very satisfied with accommodation. Our expectations were guarded given the old, historic nature of the building, but we found it well maintained overall. To our delight, the rooms are being renovated and we got one of the completed ones (Room 711). The rooms are quite small, but the decor, furnishings and layout made it quite comfy. The baht is tiny,...

Stayed here for four nights on the recommendation of friends. The room is comfortable and well presented, although somewhat small which may not be to everyone's taste. Room has both heating and A/C. Heating worked really well. The bathroom was tidy and appears to have been restored recently. Our room was situated on the Mason St. side and traffic noise...

The hotel seemed to run out of hot water mid morning... so plan on taking a shower early or late on the day. Other than that, room was clean (small 12x12), bed and pillows were very nice & i appreciated a variety of pillows (soft & firm).

One of the joys about visiting San Francisco is finding places to stay that have been lovingly restored. The Cartwright is one of those places. It is located close to public transportation so one can do sight seeing with ease. They are in the midst of redecorating some of the rooms, we were lucky to get two rooms that had...

“I recommend the street side. We didn't care for our view out back, hence this recommendation for the front. Also, choose upper floors.”
  • From the rooms located on the back side of the hotel you get a back side view,,,surprise!
