great location but hotel seen better days
The hotel is an amazing location, right next to Union Square and all it has to offer. Although located in a very tony historic building, it is time for some major upkeep. The hotel is starting to look a little tired. Also no air conditioning, just a ceiling fan. Room was hot even in December. Other than that, great stay. Nightly, happy hour complimentary sherry and tea definitely eased he pain.

Charming right by Union Square
I found this hotel charming! It's older and has character. The location is great, right by Union Square and within walking distance of lots of restaurants and bars. It was pretty fun discovering the theatre in the hotel where we saw a play. I'd stay here again.

Kensington Park Hotel, San Francisco
The hotel is very ordinary. The bathroom was horrible. Shower was the worst with either scalding or freezing water intermittently.
