Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of The Kimpton Buchanan

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Little-known Japantown Gem"
Overall Score4.5/ 5
Hotel Tomo is a great, little known hotel in Japantown. It is smallish (130 rooms), but the location is actually petty excellent – they have a quiet spot right in Japantown’s ‘town square’ (a nice, safe neighborhood) which makes them walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and attractions. They are also only a 10-or-so minute cab ride to Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf. Furthermore, the rooms are very stylish, bright, and spacious, with nice views. They have dependable consistency from room-to-room, which is often not the case with boutique hotels. The Japanese-Pop-Style turned out to be well-done and refreshing, not hokey (which was my concern before I arrived). Lastly, I was a fan of the connected restaurant, which I had lunch in. The restaurant is casual and fun, and features an ‘all you can eat and drink option’ all day during the weekends. One downside is that the hotel does not have much meeting space, but groups could, theoretically, use the space in Hotel Kabuki, which is walking distance away. So, this hotel is best used for sleeping-rooms-only groups, not events or meetings. That aside, I would recommend this hotel to any group visiting the city!
