            Clean hotel with a good location”
            The staff were the best thing about the Hotel Griffon. They were very courteous and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The location was excellent being just a short walk to the Ferry Terminal and other waterfront restaurants. It was also very easy to call an Uber car as there was space in front of the hotel for the car to stop. Perry's restaurant had good food and the staff was friendly and efficient. However, like most SF hotels, the room was quite small and the only window faced an adjacent wall that was about a meter away.

            Great Location, Small Room, Comfy Bed”
            This hotel seems a little expensive for the size of the room (we stayed in a "city view king"), but the location of the hotel (Financial District) makes up for it. So close to the Ferry Building Marketplace (with a great coffee shop, several food vendors, and other vendors selling various things), as well as Yank Sing (excellent dim sum). My husband and I were able to walk nearly everywhere, but did take Ubers at night. The bed is very comfy, which can make or break a vacation in my opinion. FYI, the sink is located in the room and not in the bathroom, so that was a little odd (but read up on the hotel's history and you'll see why). Also, the "standard" rooms are smaller than the "bay view" and "city view" rooms, so unless you don't care about a tiny room, ask for a room with some kind of view. Overall, very pleased with our stay! I don't like to stay at the same hotel twice, so I'm not sure we'll be back, but we would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

            Pleasant staff and very helpful. Restaurant next door is great in the evenings, but breakfast staff was not helpful, timely or pleasant. 7:30 is very late to start breakfast, and worse when they finally get started at 7:43. The Hotel does not run the restaurant, so no dings on the hotel for that.

            Friendly staff at check in. The hotel is very cute, room is small but quaint. We had a king bed suite for two people. Didn't have a great view from our room, but we didn't care. The bed was soooo comfortable. We liked ordering breakfast and extra towels off of a tablet in our room. PS. the breakfast was yummy! Close to the Ferry building, AT&T park and we walked to pier 39 a few times, about a 30 minute walk. I would highly recommend this hotel.

            The location is perfect and the building is beautiful - these are the first two things that hit you before you begin gushing about the inside. Hotel Griffon was one of the best decisions we made on our entire trip! The rooms are small but gorgeous. The staff - from the custodians to the reception - were just lovely and Perry's Restaurant was delicious (sit outside by the window - there is a heater and a stunning view of the Bay Bridge!). We cannot recommend it enough.

            Great location, near the Pittsburgh-Bay "Embarcadero" station, for those coming from the SFO airport. Nice and quiet street right next to the Ferry Marketplace, a great place for food lovers. Great service from Sharon at the front desk, expediting a room for us after a red-eye flight and spend almost one hour giving us tips of good places to visit and how to get around. The room was fully renovated, was comfortable and well designed to make good use of the space. If your room is not on the last floor, you can still take the elevator and see the view from the hall.

            Be careful with your room choice - although the hotel is well located and maintained, "premium" rooms such as the one we were put in, may feel claustrophobic given that the window looks out to a brick wall about 3 feet away. It's a window, yes, but NO natural light enters the room.

            Hotel Griffon is in great location near the ferry terminal, we felt safe at all times. The area has excellent public transport and is slot quieter than the busy areas of Union Square and Fishermans Wharf. The staff went out of their way to help, we were able to store our luggage as we arrived early. The housekeepers did a great job, room was clean and very comfortable. We had dinner at Perry's Restaurant attached to the hotel and this was also excellent and at a great price. Would definitely stay here again.

            Amazing find”
            I spent ages looking for somewhere to stay with my 16 year old son that would be reasonably central, affordable, safe and clean. When I came across the Griffon I knew straight away that this was the perfect choice and I was not disappointed. The Griffon is a pleasant half hour walk along the Embarcadero to Pier 39 and all it's attractions and about the same distance to Union Street. No real need to use public transport apart from to reach Golden Gate Bridge. The room was a good size and spotlessly clean and the complimentary bottles of water and chocolate left next to the bed every night were a welcome sight after a long day exploring. The staff were very polite and helpful with any questions and although my son and I didn't use Perry's bar and restaurant it always had a good crowd of people in there. The complimentary tea, coffee and fruit was handy to grab as you went out the door in the morning before you stopped at a nearby place to have breakfast to set you up for the day. Thanks Hotel Griffon for making our first visit to San Francisco so pleasant and if we ever come back we won't have to spend so long trying to find the perfect hotel as we've found you!

            Hotel Griffon was a great place to stay! We were able to walk to a lot of attractions from it.”
            The hotel was right next to the embaracedero and it was about a 20-30 minute walk from pier 39 and fisherman's wharf. We were also able to walk to a ghiradelli square. Everything in the hotel was clean and the staff was really nice. Only downside was the room didn't have a fridge but it ended up being fine because they let us keep our leftover food from a restaurant in the main fridge for the hotel. I really enjoyed my stay and would stay here again.

            Great location and clean room”
            Hotel is conveniently nestled near Embarcadero subway station and ferry building. It is also walking distance to walgreen and food places. Room is clean and the bed is comfy but do note that the wash basin is just directly infront of the bed instead of in the bathroom. As we stayed near the lift and the room's sound proof is not that good, we could hear the opening and closing of the lift door from our room. And so, if you are very particular about sound, at least request for room away from the lift! Hotel also provides complimentary beverages from Peet's in the morning and fruits in the evening. Overall, a nice hotel to stay at in SF.
