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.

Love this hotel!
This is my 2nd stay at the Kensington. The rooms are always clean and the beds are comfortable. The hotel has the perfect location close to Union Square and great eateries. The staff is welcoming and responsive. I will definitely stay here again.

Theater weekend
Went for Harry Potter. Very close to theater and an easy walk which is not always the case in San Francisco. All the shopping opportunities of Union Square are immediately available. As a smoker I was outside at all hours and knew there was an issue with homeless within a block or so but did not have a single instance of concern. There are locals and visitors on the streets coming and going all the time. The hotel has really good coffee service in lobby and on several upper floors. Nice surprise for sure. There are several great local diners close by for excellent breakfasts. Would definitely stay again.

A place with historic character...
A very idiosyncratic place: there's an operating theater and an Elks lodge within. While the lobby is relatively small, it's got a lot of character with historic elements in place from a storied past. I was on the fifth floor and elected to walk down the circuitous stairs just so I could see all the layers of the other uses and enjoyed that walk (though it also showed its working underbelly too). It's very centrally located near Union Square so lots of things nearby...
