We've wanted to stay at this hotel for sometime but it was always fairly expensive. we happened to get a great rate for a Friday night stay. The lobby, hallways, rooms are all uniquly decorated. really nice bed, very clean room. Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly, made us feel welcome. Unfortunately, we missed the wine happy hour.Location […] is perfect, a couple short blocks to Union Square. Hope to stay here again. PS:free wi-fi if you join their loyalty group, which we were going to do anyway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location Made up for the Small Rooms!"
The Triton was fine for a one night stay as the rooms are very small to stay any longer. The last minute rate was great. The hotel needs a facelift as the decor (funky/colorful/whimsical) is looking a bit tired. My 16 year old son however, thought it was very cool!! The staff was friendly and readily accommodated our late check out!! The location was […] the best part of the visit, within walking distance to great restaurants, business district, Bart, China Town, and Union Square. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Such a fun, hip, modern spot. My teen and preteen loved it, especially the chalk board and fun robesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great boutique hotel"
The Triton is in a great location. Rooms are clean, comfortable and unique. Friendly accommodating staff, we just loved our stay here. Rooms look just like pictured on website.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Gem of a Hotel"
We couldn't have asked for more. The service was top-notch from the moment we checked in (and got upgraded to a suite) to their recommendations and advice to the complimentary wine tasting and beers sent to our room. We had our dog, who they gave treats & played with. The bell staff and valets went out of their way for us. They gave us free admission […] to the crazy St. Patty's Day party next door. They gave us a personal tour of the hotel. Special kudos to Tawny for her extra efforts! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking Distance to Union Square"
Good hotel. Dislikes: no one at the valet parking stand when we arrived which is on a busy street, bed was okay, more cute than comfortable. Likes: good location, decorated really cute, great service at the front desk, WINDOW OPENS! Love when the hotel window opens!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The perfect hub for a weekend in the city."
Great staff! Small but comfortable and clean room. Close to everything!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The perfect place to stay"
This hotel is amazing. The service alone was worth every penny. First I couldn't find the hotel so the great guy at the desk met me on the corner so I could find it...even though it was in front of my face the entire time. Never once did he make me feel like an idiot tourist! Next I forgot my camera charger so another great guy at the desk took me all […] over the hotel to dig thru their "stash" of homeless chargers. They serve fresh cookies, coffee, tea and wine everyday which was so nice when you're tired and sick of cafe food and you just want to relax. Everyone, especially the maid service was so kind and friendly. The hotel is right at the gates to Chinatown and super close to Union Square shopping. This hotel really is "the perfect place to stay." Even the hotel smells good...hotels never smell good! I would stay here any and all future visits to SanFran. A truly wonderful hotel!

"SF at its funky best"
An old building redecorated in the most clever, funky, and charming ways, Hotel Triton is San Francisco at its creative, funky best. From the Jack Keroac wallpaper to the psychedelic color schemes. That, plus great location and attentive service. A great place to stay downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No breakfast? No problem! Hotel Triton makes up for the lack of a morning ritual with an amazing Happy Hour conveniently right before dinner time. We'd take a Hot Toddy over scrambled eggs any day -- especially since the Hotel is within walking distance of some of the best dim sum in San Fransisco. Awesome staff, cool decor and germaphobe friendly! […] A+ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Cool place to crash after a night of fun!"
Quiet, convenient, and unique! Overall a great hotel at a great price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Wonderful desk staff. Fun hotel. Great location for a touristGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The overall best thing about this hotel is the location! The price was reasonable and the room was just what we needed...a place to sleep. The room was small but it was not an issue for us. Wine hour was nice and the staff were very friendly and attentive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good place, great price"
wasn't there long (midnight to 7:30am) but was very satisfied. Room was clean, if small, but perfect for my purpose. No coffee maker in room but in morning complimentary coffee & tea in lobby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was small, of course with a scenic view of an alley. But, I got a terrific rate and expected as much. There was a good bit of late night noise from delivery trucks. I'm a heavy sleeper so it doesn't bother me. My only complaint about the room was that the AC/heating unit was beside the desk at torso level. The staff was absolutely outstanding. […] Very courteous and helpful during my stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Place In SF"
For a three-star hotel in San Francisco, their prices are amazing. The location is fantastic, with convenient access to cheap quality dining, fine dining, and, best of all, Target! We absolutely loved our room. It had neat little touches, including a chalk board. How cool is that? Loved the free wine bar as well. The staff was outstanding. Will definitely […] be staying here again during our next visit to San Francisco. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place, close to lots of food and shopping"
Nice funky room, clean and working except window wouldn't stay open. Great friendly and helpful staff. Cookies and wine reception nice touches. The Triton is right at the Grant Ave famous gate to Chinatown, in the center of the Financial District, a few blocks from Union Square, and an easy walk to the Embarcadero, Chinatown, and North Beach. Would […] definitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cool, Fun, Convenient"
The Triton is a funky little hotel in the Kimpton chain. The rooms are small but comfortable and the staff is eager to please. Easy to walk to Union Square, Chinatown, North Beach - its in a good spot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was perfect for a work class I was attending on Bush Street - literally 2 blocks away. Great location for walking around and visiting my favorite city spots - Embarcadero and North BeachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent unique hotel in Union Square"
This hotel has loads more personality and charm than some of the surrounding options and seemingly at reasonable rates. Decor, staff and quality of amenities made this hotel stand a class above most others at which I have stayed with a similar star ranking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing for the price"
Fantastic staff. Check in and check out was absolutely fantastic. All the employees were very friendly and personable. I had a car and I used the valet service two nights in a row. It's a little steep in terms of cost... but it's fairly priced compared to all the other hotels in the area. The nice thing is it's unlimited in and out access, no extra […] fees or charges. I put in a request for a bottle of champagne to be prepared for my wife and I before we arrived... I had indicated that I would be willing to pay for it but that I just wanted to surprise my wife. They went above and beyond. Chocolates, a signed card by the entire staff and a fantastic bottle of champagne. I was never charged for any of it. All in all, this is a fantastic place to stay. It's a fabulous location as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"All went well until..."
9 a.m. when some construction workers were taking some scaffolding down right outside my window. The hotel couldn't or wouldn't do anything about it, and couldn't find a way to compensate for my disrupted sleep. It ruined what otherwise was a great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The front desk gave us a great restaurant for dim sum...!!! great job The rooms were small and the hotel itself was a level 3 out of 5. Basic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Short but great stay"
Had a beautiful room with an unexpected upgrade. Great neighborhood with easy access to great restaurants and major parts of the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't stay here!"
Noisy (my room 524 was next to a loading dock so there was loud noise all night), the heat was not working properly, the phone did not work, the staff was not very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and price."
Great location and price, convenient to shops and central business district. A little noisy at night, not too bad, though.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Stay at the Triton"
We just had a great stay at the Triton on all levels. Check-in was quick and friendly. We even just missed the complimentary wine reception but they sent something up to our room anyway. The literary theme in the decor was a lot of fun. The hotel is a very short walk to many great destinations - Union Square, Chinatown, Coit Tower. Found a great bar […] around the corner, the Burritt Room, and had a delicious lunch at the attached restaurant next door, the Cafe de la Presse. Joined the Kimpton Club in order to get free internet, but I won't mind staying in the loop on news and deals from this well-run hotel chain. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice but watch out for the deposit"
The only complaint: I mention this to help others. Expedia says there's a $100 deposit charges by hotel. What they don't tell you is that is $100 PER DAY!! We checked in for a 6 night stay and that night I discovered a $600 charge to my bank debit card! So if u don't have the extra $$ for them to hold on to while you are in town then u may wanna pass […] on this hotel. Otherwise we really liked it. The small room didn't bother me like I thought it would. Nice decor . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Centrally located to all the must-see & do"
We had a great stay! I've stayed at various Kimpton Hotels in the past and always had a pleasant experience. Hotel Triton was no exception. From the Valet to check-out, the service & staff were great. A wine reception at 5PM on Saturday evening, clean rooms. Close to all the sights & sounds of Union Square's Holiday Festivities, as well as many bars […] & restaurants. We come up from Santa Clara every year for an overnight trip to eat, drink and shop our way through the City and this was THE ideal location. We'll all be back again soon. Merry Christmas!

"Love this hotel"
Great staff and always a pleasure to stay here. This is our favorite 'stay-cation' destination spot..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Past Its Hey Day"
The property is in need of some TLC. No longer lives up to the Kimpton name. The fantastic location makes up for the over-priced, cramped accommodations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed here numerous times over the past 10+ years. The staff, location, and value keep me coming back. The hotel is starting to show its age but it's still in great condition and did I mention the staff? I'll be back. Again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Funky and fun"
Loved the hotel. Teeters on the brink of kitsch, without going over. With the exception of the cleaning lady who stole our corkscrew, the staff was terrific and wonderfully helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Trendy and comfortable"
Great location. Very comfortable layout. Fun decor. Biggest negative was that the room was hot and stuffy when I arrived. Slept well, quiet courtyard view. It was expensive but so was everything else that week.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great happy hour and coffee in the morning. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The only complaint I have is that the windows should be updated to keep out street noise.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Service, sentiment, and sights"
Excellent!! That describes the service, the ambience, the location, the decor, and the value. Room and common area were fun to be in. Triton is very handy to lots of sights, sounds, and scenes. Staff was cordial, efficient, knowledgeable, and helpful. We will definitely stay again next trip to San Francisco.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good and not so good"
Great place to stay. Been staying for a few years now, for the Nike Women's Marathon. Except this year, we have an infant. We had a late flight out and I requested for a late check out the day before The staff was nice and said 1pm. So i asked if I can stay until we need to leave to fly out and asked for a half day rate. They staff member said to ask […] the next day because he doesnt have any information on half day rate. I said can he check w/ management as we have an infant and. He said to just call the next day. The next day I asked and the front desk said he doesnt know about half day rate. He extended our late check-out til 2pm. Unfortunately I was disappointed because my husband infant and I were hanging out in the hotel lobby until 630-7pm waiting to go to the airport. We were willing to pay a half day rate, but the staff did not know if there's such a rate. Again, this is after I ran a race. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Will stay again"
I had three nights in San Francisco on business and booked into Triton because of location, overall look, and previous experience with Kimpton. Loved the look, feel, staff and room. Will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Funky boutique hotel in a great location with a cool staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute boutique hotel"
The rooms were cute but small. A/C was by a window unit and it was hard to get the temperature right. Generally our room was clean but the hallway smelled stale/musty. The staff was very nice, arranging our car service back to the airport and bringing out wine for us when we returned to the hotel 15 minutes after the evening wine hour had technically […] ended.

"Good for someone traveling on a budget with a dog."
OK hotel, good location. For the money it's a good bet, but we won't stay there again. The room wasn't the cleanest and there was a medium sized bug crawling around. We like Kimptons because they are very dog friendly, but this place is too old and the rooms are quite small. My least favorite Kimpton I've stayed in, but again, it was cheap.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and convenient place to stay"
Overall, the stay was quite good. The only drawback was that our second floor room window faced on a busy street, and there was considerable street noise during the night and early morning from traffic and businesses. Also, our room was a little on the small side. Ask for a room on a higher floor. I definitely would stay here again, however.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"really cute boutique hotel"
This is a really cute boutique hotel that works hard to be fun and different. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved the evening wine socials. Location is perfect, across from the China Town Gate, blocks from Union Square and the Financial District not far from North Beach. Good pub, the Irish Bank, around the corner in an alley. Two small markets […] right up Bush Street. Our room had beat poetry - I think "On The Road" - wallpapered across the upper walls, green paneling below. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I came to San Francisco specifically to spend time in Chinatown (I study martial arts) and the Hotel Triton was perfect. I was just opposite the Chinatown gate, and in the heart of downtown. The hotel was great, service was wonderful, and I loved having a room papered with the "scroll" of Kerouak's "On The Road" AND having a copy in my room. Amenities […] were great (my husband laughed and laughed at me in the leopard-print robe). The neighborhood is a bit loud, which is to be expected-- funny, though, we were serenaded by a sax player below our window every night. Very clever little hotel, hope to stay there again.
