Cute boutique hotel in great location. About a 35 min walk to the Fisherman's Wharf. Room was small but had everything one needs. Very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again! Staff were helpful.

"Four day getaway to San Francisco"

Hotel Carlton is an old-style European hotel, with modern updates. Good Wi-Fi, flat panel TV cable with HBO, hair dryer, shampoo conditioner and shower gel dispenser-so you don’t need to bring those items with you. There’s a resort fee $$15 which they make up with complimentary wine at 5:30 PM for half an hour along with free live music in the lobby till 8 PM. The staff is super-friendly, and there’s a Mediterranean restaurant on the premises. A $5 coupon per day (Which can be combined) is an added incentive to use the restaurant. Located on Nob Hill, only a 15 minute walk from Chinatown, and Union Square. There’s theater, and many restaurants nearby. We really enjoyed our stay, street noise aside, we plan to be back.

"Comfortable friendly stay"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

The hotel has been updated and is very comfortable. It's age shows in some places but it very clean. The internet is fast and there are sufficient convenient power outlets. The beds are excellent. There is plenty of storage space. The staff was friendly and efficient. The wine and music at 5:30 was fun and well attended. It is not in the tourist popular Union Square area - which was ok - but be careful not to wander into the nearby Tenderloin. The restaurant was just so-so. But who cares when the amazing and awesome Mr. Holmes Bakehouse is right around the corner? We attended Hamilton at the Orpheum Theatre and afterward caught a #19 Muni bus from the front of the theatre to 2 blocks from the hotel. Way cheaper and faster than a ride hailing service. My high marks for price are because we got a spring special price.

The hotel is really cool and has a great location. Also we found the staff super helpful with everything we needed. The only downside of our stay was hearing everything that was happening inside the room next to ours!

"Good for a short stay"

Reviewed April 14, 2019 NEW
Staff was very friendly. Rooms were small but well setup. Wine reception was a nice touch. Street noise is significant and hard to sleep through. One night with earplugs, okay, but not more. The restaurant was ok, but lots of options nearby that are worth trying.
