I was on a business with little time for leisure. The Carlton Hotel is not luxurioius but it provided the right background, quiet and relaxed for my busy schedule. Athmosphere was friendly, service was prompt and accurate.

Overall, services at this hotel are good and comfortable. Staffs are very kind. And it is very convenient to access central part of SF. But, I should point out the sound from other rooms are loud sometimes at night.

So we used the bart from Oakland - pretty easy. To get from San Fran it’s also the bart and then a short walk to the hotel. Sorry I can’t be more specific but I’m not a great navigator. I just remember the whole process... More
