This hotel is a great choice for a stay in San Francisco. Close to BART station, which enabled us to easily exit the airport and jump on BART to the city, walk a short distance toward the Ferry Building and we were at the hotel. Liked the location, close to bus stop and the embarcadero fun, especially the Sat. morning...

I recently stayed at the Harbor Court Hotel in San Francisco for overnight business travel. It is difficult to find reasonable accomodations in San Francisco and I was apprehensive about my stay because I obtained the room at a reasonable rate and they actually had vacancies. I generally have had to stay south of San Francisco if I wanted accomodations...

The rooms are very small and most have a terrible view on a wall. Furnitures are old and not really usable for staying. In the room i had, the only way to put my luggage on the luggage seat was to put it in front of the exit door! Staff is not really helpful and doesn't care about you. After...

I had to look twice to make sure this review was really for my hotel. Wow...I am so sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us! Admittedly, we have some small rooms, but if there's one thing that I take pride in, it's my team's consistent genuine care for our guests. I would honestly love to talk to you...

The biggest asset of this hotel is the location. We could look out the window and gape at the Bay Bridge that was located only 2 blocks from the hotel. We could walk out the door and be on the Embarcadero; we were 2 blocks from the streetcar stop and the Ferry Building; and we were right in the middle...

Signed up online beforehand and joined their loyalty programe which entitled me to a mini bar voucher which was a nice touch and came in handy.

Arrived earlier than the official check in time on a busy weekend and despite my grumpy demeanor for having to wait a few hours for our room the staff rewarded my inconvenience with a nice bottle of wine and heartfelt apologies. It's service like this that spoils me and keeps me loyal to Kimpton. Small rooms but a lovely gem...

Neat, pet-friendly hotel with energetic staff, seemingly pleased and proud to work at a hotel that hosts hot mulled cider with bourbon at 5pm, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and whole milk at 9pm, and coffee and hot cocoa in the morning. Even the guests are friendly and interactive, like an old European guest house type hotel. Many restaurants with...

We stayed over a weekend and enjoyed the hotel and the immediate area. The hotel is small as are the rooms, but the service from the front desk and housekeeping was outstanding.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
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.
