Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Hotel Whitcomb San Francisco

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Charming, historic style for the budget conscious group"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Hotel Whitcomb is a great option for our groups. It has the pretty, historic style that many groups ask for, but at a fraction of the price of many similar options. It is a lovely property, much more unique than many other 3 star hotels. A bit of sacrifice is made on location - this property is not in a fun or interesting neighborhood, and is on a bit of a rough block. However, it is still central to the city, and it is very easy to get to major attractions in just a few minutes via public transportation. Their main ballroom is good for all kinds of events because of the high ceilings, large floor space, and balcony style mezzanine. The seeping rooms have a decent size and good style, and the on-site restaurant is surprisingly delicious. In general, this is a charming and affordable option for many of our groups, that I would definitely recommend.

Verified Reviews of Hotel Whitcomb San Francisco

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Awesome Customer Service!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We recently had a group stay here for a conference and they were treated very well! The hotel was an easy walk to Moscone Center and the customer service was outstanding.
(Group coordinator, booked 12 rooms), from US flag
18-Oct-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Sun Oct 12 to Fri Oct 17 2014 at a $329.00 group rate.
"Poor Housekeeping and Lack of Front Desk Staff."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The light fittings looked dangerous (coming away from the wall), bathroom cosmetics on both nights were previously used and not replaced, people were fed up waiting for the only lift. Eventually, we walked up and down the back stairs. There were also long queues in the lobby for check-in, with only one front desk clerk.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
31-Oct-2013 Verified Review, stayed from Mon Oct 28 to Wed Oct 30 2013 at a $189.00 average nightly rate.
