Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of The Kimpton Buchanan

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"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!

Property Description

The Kimpton Buchanan is a sultry historic revival at the intersection of TheFillmore, Pacific Heights, and Japantown, where you can savorsushi from family-owned restaurants in Japantown, and then cruisethe sassy boutiques located on trendy Fillmore Street. Spend yourevenings like the locals at a karaoke bar or enjoy the vibrant musicscene in Lower Pacific Heights, just blocks away. Cycle around thecity on one of our Kimpton bikes before withdrawing into a roomthat feels like a stylish and cozy apartment.Our hotel is ideally located at the geographic center of San Francisco, just a 5 to 10 minute cab ride to Union Square or Fisherman's Wharf. Within walking distance you will find over 30 restaurants as well as the up-scale shopping, dining and entertainment venues of the Fillmore/Pacific Heights areas. We offer the best of both worlds – easy access to city's most dynamic and desirable areas and accommodations in a quiet, unique San Francisco neighborhood.
