    I stayed 4 nights, hotel provided free coffee service at the morning, free one hour wine service at the evening. All staff are really friendly, supportive. Hotel fare is a bit expensive but If I visit SF again, I will stay here again.

    We stayed for a weekend and loved the location near Union Square. All interactions with any staff were positive. We had no problems. Historical building meticulously maintained, just beautiful. The rooms were typical Kimpton--fantastic decor, very functional, clean, great experience. Excellent stay.
