Very comfortable, quaint hotel. After staying many times at big chain hotels around Union Square, The Kensington was a welcome change. It has more of a feel of a European boutique hotel which was a welcome surprise. Though the bathroom in my room could could use a bit of an update, everything was extremely clean and well appointed. Recommended.

The room while small it was clean and quiet. Bed comfortable.Staff professional courteous and very accommodating . We belong to the Elks lodge in N. Wildwood NJ and were delightfully surprised to find out the Elks had a lodge in this hotel we met several members while traveling cross country who referred us here. We were walking distance from Chinatown and North Bay which was great.

Beautiful and clean hotel attached to the Playhouse. We came to celebrate our anniversary here and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Lily especially went out of her way to ensure we had a wonderful and stress free experience. Even before we chose to stay at Kensington Park Hotel, I had several unique questions that Lily made sure to obtain the correct information or answer for me and called me back promptly. Upon arrival we found out they upgraded our room for our anniversary and throughout our stay all of the staff were helpful and courteous. Thank you Kensington Park Hotel staff! We will definitely chose to stay with you again!

What a great location. Next to Union Square, walking distance to China Town, lots of restaurants within easy walking distance. Staff is friendly and helpful. Top of the Mark is 4 blocks up Nob Hill. I never stay anywhere else when I visit San Francisco.
