The hotel accomplishes what you see at the web site. A trendy place with lots of different things that made my stay entertaining. Location is excellent, rooms are clean, but mine had a strange odor. Very small ones, but I wasn't expecting a suite with 2 rooms, so it was ok. The staff very friendly, they handled my packages very...

I always love the Triton -- quirky, funky, and fun. The staff goes the extra mile. Super pet friendly. And a little cheaper and in a nicer location that the other downtown/financial district kimptons. Of course, it's San Francisco. So, you're gonna get small rooms unless you go to a glass&steel chain hotel. But, the Triton rooms are totally comfortable...

I would highly recommend staying here if your looking for something different from a standard hotel. The rooms are super funky and the location is perfect. Everyone is super friendly, definitely say hi to Scott and Amanda at the front, very friendly and accommodating. I know where I'll be staying for my San Fran trips!

A very nice boutique hotel right at the gates of China Town - very friendly and helpful staff, easy access to BART and the ferries, and tastefully decorated rooms. This is an older boutique hotel, but it is well appointed, and a very nice value. The manager wine tasting every afternoon is a very nice touch. Many restaurants very close...

The staff was accommodating and friendly. The hotel was very clean and situated in the heart of downtown. I highly recommend this hotel. Rooms are a bit small, but that was not an issue for us, as we mostly just went back to the room to rest or sleep.
