The Griffon”

Very friendly staff, the hotel shares a first floor restaurant with great onion strings. It's a small room, looks like the hotel has been refurbished throughout the years and it's not a bad thing at all. Great location next to Embarcadero, walking distance to the Ferry building which serves as a market these days. Provided a great "home" base during our 4 day weekend in town. Would definitely stay here again!

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.

Room without a view - literally”

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.

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.
