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.
