"A great night at the Cartwright Hotel"
We really enjoyed our brief stay. We arrived late, and there were no rooms with double beds left. Edward immediately upgraded us to a suite! The foldout sofa was all set up with sheets, and there was a pillow in the closet. The hotel was quaint and lovely. Near Union Square, street noise is unavoidable. We were there the night before Halloween and the […] Giants victory parade. Kevin, also on staff, was extremely friendly and helpful. I felt very welcome and cared for there.

"walls are thjn"
The walls are very thin. Every night at around 11pm, I would hear noises that one does not want to hear. It was very disturbing, especially since most nights I was up working on academic projects.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great service, great location"
Great service. Friendly and informative staff. Location for Union Square could not be better, especially for the price. very, very small rooms; but then it is San Francisco.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Meh. The photos make this place look much nicer than it actually is.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hot and noisy"
No AC. Needed to open windows at night to cool down. The city noise kept us up all night: fights, traffic, car alarms, sirens, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old and tiny"
Tiny room, old furniture, the worst view ever (brick wall right in front). It's a two-star hotel, really, not a three-star. Not wroth the money, regardless of its location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Great Staff"
As many have mentioned - the rooms are small in this charming old school SF hotel. Beds were comfortable, amenities basic but completely fine. Personally I like staying in hotels that have a personality tied to the history of the city and the Cartwright fits the bill. This is my second stay here - 6 nights - no complaints. Sure there are city noises […] from time to time but if you can't handle that, don't stay in the city ;) The location is excellent and I basically only used the room to clean up and catch some sleep.

"perfect located, very friendly, nice & clean rooms"
stayed for two night in the center of SFO, perect walking distance for shopping, getting on cable car, very friendly - very supporting staff, smal but clean room with everything you need for a stay, room window was to inside so no view on Sutter Street but no problem as it was very quite during night. Old fashioned Hotel in very good condition. Will […] be my favorite for next stay in SFO Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable, no air conditioner, better rate for parking then other hotels. Staff friendly and helpful. Close to everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Location, served its purpose."
The room was teeny tiny but was fine for a weekend stay. I had a corner queen room and it had a closet which was nice to keep luggage out of my way. The bathroom was ridiculously small but the decor was cute and the deep bathtub made up for it. There was no AC, no ice machine, no breakfast in the morning, and really, no frills. I would really only recommend […] this hotel if you aren't planning on being there much and you just want a decent place to sleep it's perfect for that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel right in the middle of everything"
The hotel staff was very friendly and I absolutely love that allow animals!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old, traditional but quite adequate."
It is definitely not a five-star Hilton. You get the sense of it being a hotel that might once have been among the better ones in the Union Square area. The room was small (but I had only asked for a single) and bathroom was old-fashioned but adequate. The folks at the desk and those cleaning rooms were pleasant and helpful. I'd stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Business trip for a Conference"
This is an old hotel located very close to the best part to stay at San Francisco, close to Union Square. Is a good relationship between cost and facilities alternative if you are looking for a "just sleep". It's clean, safety, good internet, close to many restaurant but room are so tiny that is not comfortable if you need to spend much time inside […] . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Rooms are clean and well maintained, but a little small. Awesome location right in the centre of town. Walking distance to China town. Heaps of dining and shopping. Affordable rate more than makes up for the slightly small room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little old mixed with a little new"
This hotel has seen better days but still tries to offer the amenities of today. While falling short it's still a bargin to be considered when on a budget or looking at location. While the walls are paper thin the staff was great and very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great boutique hotel near Union Square!"
The hotel is very charming. The single rooms are fairly small, but that's common for boutique hotels. My room was very clean and the staff were welcoming and helpful. For my overnight trip it was a perfect place to stay. Also set in the heart of the City, walking distance to restaurants, cafes, and union square. I would definitely stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service and location"
I've stayed at the Cartwright twice in the past year, and both times were enjoyable. During my second stay, I checked in a few hours early when the room was still being cleaned, and the front desk upgraded me to a better room that was available sooner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, good service but disappointing"
I picked this hotel for a last minute trip to the city. I booked it based on reviews and the hotels.com rate. It is a good location for shopping and eating near Union Square and Market st. It was clean but it's an old hotel. The room was tiny. The pleather headboards were torn. There was no fridge. It was disappointing. However, if you pay the valet […] parking rate your car can stay there for 24 hours, allowing time for all day of walking the city. They also will store your luggage after the 11:00am check out until you come back for your car. The staff was friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, right in the heart of the city. Cute, and I love that they allow pets.The reviews had said the rooms were tiny, so I was surprised that mine seemed a decent size. I discovered when I looked at a map of the rooms that it was larger than most of the singles. It is Room 209, a double bed for one person, but in the corner, so there was more […] room. large closet and decent sized bath. The only weirdness was the bed was a little wobbly, but still very comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great staff-- super informative! The room was small and needs central air or some kind of air conditioning. Don't get the top floor unless you are promised a street view, otherwise horrid view.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple hotel - fair price - great location"
The room was very small, but adequate. The biggest reason to stay here is the location. Walking distance to everything in the heart of downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good but old"
The hotel was in a great location, central to Union Square, Chinatown, etc. The lobby was very appealing, but the rooms are pretty small and dated. The rooms are kept up well and the front desk clerks were helpful, but I can't escape the fact that the hotel at which my parents stayed was only $20 more per night, yet was much more clean and modern.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location near Union Square. The pictures looked better online than the rooms did in real life. The bed skirt and curtains had holes, and the place felt a bit rundown. They spent more money on the upkeep of the lobby than the rooms guests stay in. The staff is nice and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easy to walk to most attractions"
The rooms are small and there is a feeling of history to the place but it was comfortable and the staff was very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
Front staff very helpful. Great location in Union square.Genuine Expedia guest review
While the communication with the front desk was unfriendly and "decent" at best, the actual room accommodations were clean, neat and comfy. The room was on the smaller side, and I was amazed at how everything fit just so.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and close to central of city."
The building is little old but it is close to everywhere you can go. The hotel staffs very nice and helpful, they really help us to find every where we can go and show directoin to find a good resturant and other place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"so much for so litttle"
the room is extremely small. there is no drinking water/kitchen in the hotel. F0r ~$350/night, I could've stayed in Hilton that is close by with a king size bed, which I did after staying here for 3 days. It was overall okay, but I will only pay half of what I paid for what I got.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was charming. It exuded the feel of yesteryear while being updated to todays world. Hats off to the amazing staff. They were so friendly and always there to help. All in all, a wonderful hotel in a fabulous location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Elegant and Classy!"
Located in Union Square, this historic and classic hotel is perfect for a stay in San Francisco! Clean and reasonably priced rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect old hotel in downtown SF"
Only issues with hotel: cramped room, no a/c in room, and parking was more expensive than I expected. Otherwise, this is a great place with excellent and friendly service in the perfect location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, Great Value"
The Hotel Cartwright exceeded my expectations for a value hotel. I figured at this price that I would have to "live" with something that was not great. NOT SO. The Hotel Cartwright was clean, friendly staff, comfortable, nice bathroom, and just perfect for the location right off Union Square.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Downtown Hotel"
Great location. Room was small but comfortable. Bed was very good. Provided personal hygiene items. Staff helpful. Other guests were cordial. No air conditioning but windows open and a ceiling fan in room. Self parking at a nearby parking garage was reasonable for San Francisco. Easy walk. We would stay at the Cartwright again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location! A couple of blocks from Union Square and from the trolley stop. No AC but my room had 3 windows. Very...very small bathroom. Staff was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A good hotel. Small rooms are perfect for the business traveler.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near the Powell trolley and TONGA ROOM"
its a 1920s building so dont expect large rooms. its quaint, has a ceiling fan that is silent, but no AC, but how often do you need that in SF? Nice bed, the hotel is new on the inside even though its a historic gem in architecture. I love how the Flat screen TV remote is sanitized as that is always the most with germs (think about it). ipod dock radio […] alarm, the basics but very well done! They have 24hr room service from the diner next door. Around the corner is Sears famous for their breakfast. We did the self parking which was like $29 over the standard $52 for every hotel in town. All it is you drop it off yourself and pick it up at the lot around the block. You could hear the trolley bell (good if you want the city experience, bad if you want to stay in a bubble). Oh and the Tonga Room is 4 blocks up at the Fairmont for timeless Tiki drinks! Its a gem for those wanting to explore the city via walking or public transport Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great downtown location."
Second time to stay here. Very nice and quiet. Great place to rest and close to many things.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cute little hotel"
The location of the hotel was great! Parking wasn't that much of an issue either. Rooms were tiny but very well kept. You could tell it's a very old building and they're trying to update things a little. Bar closes extra early which is weird since most hotel bars stay open late. And the service there is just mediocre. Can't really complain too much […] . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
In town for business, I needed to be close to that area... for the price, it was perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean (I booked multiple for my team). Close to where I needed to be for the budget we had to spend. Great experience overall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in great location!!"
We stayed 4 nights at this great hotel, with a 1-yr old baby. The room was nice and clean, very nice bathroom and the front-desk staff out of this world friendly!! Any request we had was immediately seen to. Location is absolutely great with quick access to anything you need. Even walking distance to the warf if you don't mind walking. I would stay […] here again and recommend it warmly! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"great area to stay in lots to see and do..."
The staff was very friendly and helpful, great place to say, my room was small but perfect for one.. About 4 blocks from Bart and 2 from Union Sq... I will definitely stay there again...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location & Staff"
We stayed over 4th of July weekend and it was great! The staff was very friendly and professional. The lobby is beautiful but I thought it was unfortunate that they had a bar area with no liquor license. It seemed like wasted space to me since they're not utilizing it. The room was clean and cozy but too small. I heard anothwr guest refer to it as a […] doll room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The hotel is in the middle of everything. you can get to any place from this hotel. Very convenient location. The staff very friendly.

It was great...the room was tiny but perfectly clean and adequate, great shower very quiet very good beds. Great location and we liked the fireplace downstairs. Could have a cleaner elevator my only complaint.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"European style accomodation"
Compact rooms but perfectly situated, this hotel does the job. Ideal for access to all the tourist attractions and public transport routes in San Fran. Staff very friendly and helpful. Sadly, when I was staying the hotel had just been taken under new management and there was no drinks license in place to open the bar. Nor was there breakfast available. […] But guests get vouchers to use in the truly awesome Lori's diner next door. Would stay again. Especially if the bar gets a license! Rooms are quite old fashioned - Americans might be surprised. But I'm European and quite old fashioned myself, so no problem there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
