  • Family with children
    5.4

    The historic nature of the hotel. Its close proximity to the shops. Some staff extremely helpful some rather churlish.

    Its location attracts a lot of poor/homeless people. Some of whom have obvious mental health needs. Some rooms are in need of refurbishment.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Very convenient to public transportation and overall nice rooms. City hotel so expect small bathrooms and city life on the street. It's big and if you want to feel special and pampered, this ain't the place but if you want a good place to stay in the middle of lots of things, can't beat the price, cleanliness, etc. Thanks Whitcomb

  • Older travelers

    Privacy and the parking personell

    Coffee maker in room is a must, coffee is not good when you have to see other people at the lobby fighting your way via the Starbucks line. The smells of fresh coffee in the mornig is heaven (in the room)

    - The hotel clerks took efforts to get us checked in early and were very friendly.

  • Group of friends

    When I returned from the softball games, the room was clean again

    The victorian style

  • Single
    9.2

    The comfort of the Starbucks downstairs - Proximity to the city and public transport and beautiful atmospheric lobby and room

    The internet connection was not always 100% and I could use a bit more light in the room - one switch didn't work. In addition, it'd be better to put the 'Don't wash the towels' card a bit more where I could see it. I only discovered this on the second day (Thought the rule was just not to put the towels on the ground)

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The quality of the beds and the space in the room.

    The beds were a little bit small for 2 persons.

  • Couple
    5.0

    The history and architecture was beautiful in this old building.

    The location was brutal. There are so many homeless and high people around there, it was scary to walk down the street, day or night. I would recommend paying a little more and staying closer to Union Square.

    We absolutely loved our stay at the Hotel Whitcomb. Our daughter was gradutating from the SF Conservatory of Music, and the location and ammenities of the hotel were exactly what we were looking for during this special occasion. Of course the lobby is breathtaking, and the history is fascinating. We reccommend the Hotel Whitcomb to anyone who enjoys the heart of the City. Thank you!

  • Couple

    The reception looked nice.

    Service was very poor, had to que for 1 1/2 hrs to check in & then they messed up the reservation and I asked me to leave early so had to que up again to sort it out. Just what you want after a long flight! Hotel smelt bad, musty and lots of road noise in room. Hotel is situated on the edge of the tourist area, didn't feel particuarly safe walking back at night, lots of crazy homeless people about.

    We had a corner room and loved it. Larry was also extremely friendly :)

  • Single
    10.0

    The overall comfort of the hotel. I very much felt at home the 6 nights that I stayed there and my bed was sooooo very cozy. It broke my heart to leave come Friday morning.

    The smell of smoke in the Hall way and in my closet.

  • Single

    Restaurant menu is limited and not delicious.Bartender was good at his job.

    Location is awful, to many homeless people in hotel area and bothered me with their insisted attitudes.
