About Hotel Whitcomb, San Francisco

Historic San Francisco hotel with piano bar and free WiFi

Near trolley and museum

Hotel Whitcomb in downtown San Francisco is a hop from a trolley stop on Market Street, where you can ride to gourmet food shops at Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero waterfront. You're also a 3-minute walk from the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco.

Lombard Street stroll

The Westfield San Francisco Centre mall, where you can ride spiral escalators to shops and restaurants, is a 12-minute walk. A 5-minute drive brings you to shopping and a public plaza at Union Square, while a 10-minute drive takes you to the famously crooked Lombard Street.

Piano bar, Asian fusion fare

The hotel's historic past is reflected in the Victorian ambience of The Tavern piano bar, where you can sip happy hour cocktails before dining on Asian fusion fare at Florinda's Market Street Grill. In addition, there's an onsite Starbucks®. Luggage storage, tours/ticket assistance, and a 24-hour fitness center are also provided at the hotel.

Free WiFi, pay movies

Featuring elegant early 20th-century decor, the 460 air-conditioned rooms and suites -some with city views - offer 37-inch LCD TVs with premium channels and pay-per-view movies. You can get some work done at the desk, or browse the Web with free WiFi.
