San Francisco Treat”

Great service from welcoming doorman to front desk to concierge and maid service Comfortable room Great location near Union Square Good food and service in Ponzu restaurant Chance to socialize with other guests at wine reception each evening
Street noise particularly in rooms on lower floors

Arrived a bit late at night and check in experience was quick and very efficient. Very welcoming staff offering help in transportation and sightseeing. Excellent location near Union Square. Enjoyed coffee in the lobby every morning and wine reception in the evening. Will definately recommend to family, friends and business associates traveling to San Francisco.

Great Hotel, terrible bed”

Location is great, front desk friendly and helpful, bell service very helpful
breakfast service at restaurant was terrible, one of two beds in room lumpy and worn out

Great lobby in a slightly dodgy area of San Francisco. Yes you are downtown, a block or two from Union Square, Theaters, etc., but the Tenderloin and Market Street are dirty, impoverished areas at your doorstep. The room was smallish but neat and clean with good linens. It had restored charm from an earlier era, but the heating system was loud and one of the two beds left me with a backache that took days to recover from. Otherwise a quiet space 17 floors above the city. I might give it another try based on the staff service and the moderate price. We did not use room service or eat dinner at Ponzu, but breakfast was served slowly, at high price and low quality. You're better off at the Taylor Street Cafe around the block.

Location was great. Staff was friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. For the price I expected more but it San Francisco so I should have known. Cost me $60 dollars to park my truck over night not much other options to park unless u want a broken window and your stuff stolen. With the tax when u check out and parking fees it cost me a whole lot more then I expected to pay out. Walls were thin in my room I could hear the neighbors conversations.

Very clean and view up top was amazing.Parking is expensive we paid $35-60 to park with a few blocks.Also there is an additional “Urban “ tax which was almost $40 included in fee of room, for amenities and gym.... so factor in some additional fees to this hotel. We paid a total of $210, with parking, to stay there and the thought we got a good deal of $130. Still the rooms, locations and all the rest did make it worth the cost, and you are downtown SF!!

Terrific hotel”

Fantastic view from our room; central location meant that we didn't have to drive anywhere; helpful staff; wine hour at 5pm; terrific decor.
Drain in the bathtub slow; NY Times available in the lobby, but not delivered to door.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Serrano for two nights in November 2008 to celebrate her birthday. Like the other Kimpton hotel we've stayed at, the staff was terrific, and the decor fantastic. The front desk upgraded us upon check-in to a lovely Queen Deluxe on the 16th floor with a terrific view of the city. The central location meant that we could walk to Union Square, Hayes Valley, the Embarcadero, and the North Shore without difficulty. Sure, space is a little tight, but given the historic nature of the hotel, not unexpected. The in-room mini-fridge is not badly priced if you feel like a drink once you've retired for the evening. A fantastic stay!

The bathrooms were a bit small but very doable. Everything was very clean. The location was great, easy access to everything.

Short visit in SF”

I liked the Lobby decorations. Morning coffee served for free which is a nice gesture Room was comfortable but small (but since I was alone it didnt bother)
Not really a con but now doing outside renovation. Some people might find this annoying (there was no noise while I was in the hotel). Service employee in the check in desk coould be more cordial.

There are many hotels to choose from in this area. If you want to be in the MIDDLE of downtown you should probably take on of the many hotels 2 blocks west. Serrano is very central but it’s like 1-2 blocks from the shopping streets. I liked the hotel very much. It was clean, not too small and not too big, beautifully decorated and central enough. I had a short stay this time but next time I’m in town I might visit again if the price fairly (like they did this time)

Within walking distance to Macy's Union Square”

The check-in time for this hotel is 3pm. When we arrived at 2pm, our room was not ready for check-in. But they provide free luggage storage service. There is valet parking available at this hotel but we decided to park at the public parking garage across the hotel for cheaper rates. The hotel charge a mandatory urban fee of $34.19/night that we had to pay during check-out. The staff said it is for the use of wifi, coffee and tea provided in the lobby. Somehow I feel this fee is unnecessary and they should included it in the room rate on Agoda. This hotel is located within walking distance to the shopping area of Union Square. The room is newly renovated, and looks clean. The bathroom is a rather small, especially the sink area which is next to the bath/shower area. Apart from that, it was a good stay.

Beautiful hotel, great facilities. Would prefer tea/coffee making facilities in room, available free in foyer in mornings, but would be nice for evening cuppa, but a minor point and wouldn’t stop me booking again. Located near to area with a lot of homeless but you’d probably be getting Uber/Lyft back anyway because of the walk back from Fisherman’s Wharf area etc. Not far distance-wise, it’s the inclines!!

Generally my stay was very nice. The bed was comfortable and the room was set up well. Staff were friendly and helpful. If I could change anything about this hotel it would be the front doors. They are enormous, automated doors and it makes it very unpleasant to sit in the lobby when they keep opening and letting in cold air and all the loud noises outside. They stay open for too long.

Very small, room a/c is loud, bad views.

We brought guests from Belgium to see SF...the hotel is in a good, convenient location and is nicely decorated. However, the rooms were VERY small, with queen beds instead of king and the room temp was tricky to control, with a loud a/c unit. Our two window views were the wall of the building next door, and the unattractive buildings across the street. Not a bad place, but know what to expect, or you could be somewhat disappointed. "Run of House" was misleading.
