Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Hotel Whitcomb San Francisco

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"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:
"Okay Experience!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I organized a convening in San Francisco May 16 and 17 with approximately 15 participants. Our contract included 15 rooms for one to two nights each. While I did not stay at the hotel and can therefore not comment on the facilities, I have to say that the process for checking my guests into the hotel was very difficult and in some ways problematic. My first four guests to arrive were not in Hotel Whit comb's reservation system. One after the next, I received calls at work from my guests saying that they were unable to access their reservation. When I called to attempt to resolve the issue, the sales manager was curt and continuously assured me that the problem was resolved. Yet, one after the other, I continued to receive calls from my participants asking for my help in resolving the fact that the front desk was turning them away for a lack of reservation. Communication between the front desk and their sales communication was poor at best. I finally had to take time out from work to accompany the remainder of my guests in order to smooth the registration process. At this point, about half of my guests were able to check in without issue, while two or three additional check ins continued to be clunky. I will say that there was one error on my organization's part and the hotel was able to accommodate us in addressing it and I was grateful for their graciousness where that was concerned. However, there was at least one VERY problematic situation in which one of my guests was checked into a room that was occupied. When my guest walked into the room, the occupant was undressed. This created a very awkward situation for both guests. When my guest attempted to return the room key, hotel staff told him to keep the key! He refused due to the potential liability and left the key card at the front desk. All in all, I would not recommend this hotel for a group event. Again, I cannot comment on the experience my guests had on site, but the logistics of organizing a two day event are hard enough without having to field multiple stressful calls with guests whose reservations cannot be located by the hotel.
