          The location is great, staff is really friendly and rooms are tidy. I liked complimentary free wifi

          Proximity to A T & T Park; Great location. Very helpful staff

          We had 2 rooms with one that was supposed to have a "city view". It did not have this advertised view, and we paid extra.

          location. Next time we'll get a room with a view or a larger room. But beautiful, stylish accomodations. Nice boutique hotel and we will return.

          Need to have newspaper delivered to room ie. USA Today

          Because I could not get my cell phone to work I learned to like being cut off from people. Because Aircon did not work I was forced to walk around more.

          It would be better if cell phones had service, if aircon worked & if WiFi worked properly.

          We liked the location, 1 mile from at&t park. We were able to catch a pedicab to and from the park and enjoyed the ride along the waterfront while taking in the street performances along the way. Perry's restaurant was located next door and could access it through the hotel lobby. The staff at the restaurant were accomodating and easily lent us wine glasses to use with the wine we had in the room. The Ferry building is across the street and thoroughly enjoyed the main food shops indoors, and the open air farmer's market on Saturdays. At our next visit to the Hotel Griffon, we will take the ferry across the bay and explore Tiburon. The room decor was fabulous. We loved the exposed brick wall behind our bed, with the high ceilings, very dramatic.

          The mattress and pillows were a bit firm, otherwise the room was beautiful.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          I liked the size of the bathroom and the seperate vanity outside of the bathroom. Very comfortable bed and pillows! Also had lunch at the restaurant at the hotel and the Checken Blt was excellent!

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The location was great for the Giants game and for spending time at Fisherman's Wharf. Liked the location close to the bay.

          Of course the cost of parking!!!! Other than that it was a great room. Not noisy at all for being a block from the Embarcadero!

        • Single
          7.8

          Front desk staff very responsive. Rooms are small but comfortable. Great location in the City.

          My reservation was not accurate and created confusion at check in.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Location is great. Nice room, although small. Good grooming amenities. Staff helpful.

          Queen room is very small. Odd noises at night, like machines running.

          location

          my room was very very tiny definitly not a "deluxe king" and noisy from air conditioning, my view was a wall 4 feet away from window. also was reminded that because i booked online that was all that was available. heat did not work, told front desk and was offered a heat fan, but was no room to put it.....

        • Couple
          8.2

          The staff were incredibly nice and accommodating, no matter what request we had, or what time of day or night. Everything was spotless when we arrived, the bedding was very plush, and whole hotel has a quirky, fun feel to it, considering it's an older building with a lot of history. Services and amenities rival those offered by larger, more expensive hotel chains.

          The hotel only has one elevator, which was small, slow, and needs updating.

        • Couple

          The view from our room was amazing! The rooms are a bit small but the cleanliness and comfort of the room was excellent! Would definitely book again, especially at the price I got!

          The service -- the staff was so very professional and always helpful. The place was maybe the cleanest hotel I have ever visited.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Very clean comfortable lodging. Quiet room without city or hotel noise. Easy to get around city from hotel location, close to main roads and transportation.

          Mattress too soft.

        • Single
          9.2

          The staff was helpful and professional; the price of the room was very reasonable given the location; it was great having a very good restaurant and bar in the building
