Waited for a certain situation to be handled by the Inept Manager. Waited 2 months, Nothing. So I will post. The Lobby and hallways are way dingy. Though the rooms that we had (We Had 2) Located on an inside courtyard were quiet and clean. I know this is an older hotel, but the Only available outlets are in the...

Fantastic experience with front desk staff and the proximity of great restaurants (highly recommend Alta!). Our room is lovely with a mix of modern and vintage feel. The lobby is stunning, and there is a large internet cafe as well as a Starbucks near the front desk. Hotel Whitcomb has made my stay in San Francisco extra special, and I...

Good old traditional hotel, friendly and comfortable. Room was a little dark, could have done with more standard lights but it didn't spoil our stay. Very handy for transportation, were able to take the underground to the airport from just outside and took only 25 min. The F - muni line runs straight to Fishermans Wharf for $2.50. The immediate...

I was a little nervous about staying here when I saw some of the negative rooms. I don't know what those crazy people are taking about. Yes the halls and rooms are dim. Have you ever heard of conserving energy? Yes I know many of you don't know about protecting the environment for future generations. Learn something new: The electricity...

The zone is ok, the personal at the front desk is really kind, the food in the restaurant it's really good, worst internet connection I can remember and they can improve cleaning service, the elevators in general to slow and finally the rooms need maintenance.

This hotel has a D- rating with the Better Business Bureau! This was by far the WORST hotel I've every been to, checked in and couldn't even last 20 minutes there without having to rebook else where. The staff is very rude, the hotel smells horrible and the rooms smell even worse and there are signs of bed bugs in...

My daughter and I stayed at the Hotel Whitcomb recently. We had a great stay! The weather was perfect and the hotel was located in a very convenient place. We were able to see two musicals within a few blocks of the hotel. We walked to Chinatown, Nob Hill and even the Coit Tower on the first day. They do...

We stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is quite a period piece with bags of style in the reception area. Our room was quite small but still had room for 2 double beds! The shower was hot but not very fast. There was not very much room for unpacking which didn't bother us because we were only there for 2...

On a whirlwind tour of the US we stayed at the Whitcomb for 3 nights, the hotel is clean with friendly staff and is ideally located for union square, the only downfalls are the fact that it's very dated but I personally appreciated the original features of the hotel and it's locality to the Tenderloin area of the city which...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
