We've just stayed at this hotel and I'm glad it was only for 1 night. We were in San Fran 2 days on a stop over as we were doing Alcatraz and The Golden Gate Bridge. We booked this hotel as it looked like a central location and we got a good price, I now know why. I was very concerned after reading many reviews and unfortunately they were all right, upon arriving from San Fran Airport and getting off the BART (which is located right outside the hotel) it was littered with nothing but crazy pe...

This was our second multiple days stay at this hotel-the level of service has deteriorated considerably eg-only one incomplete towel set, extremely low water pressure, the toilet leaked,dim lighting and not enough outlets. We reported all of this on the comment card and sought out staff for amenities. The immediate area has increased the numbers of absolute screaming crazies and aggressive panhandlers-definitely not safe for walking in the evenings. Will look for a different hotel next time.

Whilst the lobby in the hotel is elegant and modern, the rooms look like they were last decorated in the 90s with horrible dark yellow wallpaper and dirty curtains. The area is also rough with homeless people galore on the streets. The smell of "weed" overpowers you as you walk the streets surrounding the hotel. We got out of the taxi on our arrival and were immediately greeted with a homeless person asking for money. Do not recommend.

We arrived at Hotel Whitcomb nice and early one morning with the intention of checking our baggage and going to town as we arrived well before checkin time. After lining up for a very long time, as there was only one nice man behind the counter, the quietly spoken but very helpful man went out of his way to find a room which was available for us and we were able to go upstairs, unpack our bags and have a shower before hitting town. This was a plus and was very welcome. The hotel itself is larg... Read more

I was drawn to Hotel Whitcomb because it is historic & beautifully preserved, esp. the lobby. The hotel's Grill was pretty pricey but the cuisine & presentation were exceptional. In fact, In return for booking, I was to get a free family membership in National Trust for Historic Preservation organization However, to my disappointment that didn't seem to come about. Another big reason I booked this hotel for our 3-night stay in San Fran is because of it's downtown location - esp. as it's within t... Read more

The hotel is clean and tidy and the rooms were well presented. The bed was very comfortable and I have no complaints about the accommodation. The biggest issue is its location. The area directly outside the hotel is literally over run with homeless people and the area is littered with used drug needles and syringes. The Burger King directly opposite is used as a shooting gallery for addicts and should be avoided at all costs. This is not a safe or pleasant area at night. The area really lets the... Read more

The Hotel Whitcomb is horrible! The internet is really bad, the rooms stink and the location is scary. There is a security guard at the Burger King! Since my trip is only 2 nights, I'm dealing with it.

I was actually very impressed with my overall experience! Every single staff that I came across during my stay at the Hotel Whitcomb were there all very pleasant and accommodating. They provided me with outstanding customer service from check-in to check-out. Their Director of Guest Services, Kazi Ahmed provided me with the highest customer service and ensured we enjoyed our stay. Be sure to ask for Kazi Ahmed when you need a room to stay at the Hotel Whitcomb! You'll see!

The building is old but room and bathroom are so clean. You know sometime a bathroom that didn't really want to wash. This hotel was fine. And There are some homeless in a nearby but Compared to other regions seems innocuous. But the bed springs it feels like little longer.

when I got there the staff was nice when I got to my room the long hallway was a bit uncomfortable and my boyfriend said right off the bat that he smelled death all over the entire hallway. The overall room was nice . When I got in the shower I heard this loud humming noise I didn't no what it was. I thought the pipes was just old. I closed the bathroom door to keep the warmth in the bathroom given the fact the water was not hot at all and the pressure was little to none. in the middle of my sho... Read more

I booked the Whitcomb through Expedia at a very decent cut price last minute rate (about $200US per night), and was happy with it. It is a "historic" hotel, but it is ageing, so the chandeliers, wood panelling and rich carpeting are starting to lose a little of their obvious former grandness. That being said, it's comfortable, the room was a good size for two people with two large bags and had a nice view of City Hall, there was free in room wifi, and the service was fine. The BART stops just ou... Read more

Stayed 3 nights on the 5th floor. Room at the back so nice and quiet considering that it's on a very busy street. Lovely building and public areas but the rooms are quite disappointing. At least ours was. No fridge, no tea or coffee making facility in the room and very noisy air conditioning. Bed comfortable and clean room, but no bath towels on arrival and, despite 2 requests, and a phone call, none were sent. I had to get some from the room service trolley in the morning. There is a Starbucks ... Read more

Stayed with wife and nephew. Hotel is old, but functional. I had an issue with the their internet (never worked all three days we spent there). However, they discounted two days of parking ($38/night). Area is close to union square, but be careful as there are plenty of homeless in the area. Wouldn't feel safe walking late at night.

I was on a 2 day business trip. Due to the elections, hotels were booked up. I booked what was apparently the only available room at the allegedly historic and elegant Hotel Whitcomb. For $488/night I was given a suite with 2 very low lighted rooms decorated in 1970s mismatched furniture and orange/brown drapes. The walls were pukey beige. The bathroom had a very yucky tub mat. I asked the desk for a new mat and they sent up another cotton mat. No hairdryer. no newspaper, no coffee maker ... Read more

Hotel Whitcomb is truly a gem if you are looking to travel within a budget and still be close to everything. You can step right out of the front door and jump on the red trolley and go all over downtown and Embarcadero. The staff are wonderful especially Tom the bellman who has been in the city of 35 plus years and he knows everything that you can do on any sort of budget. I stay here for business about every other month but many families like the budget friendly prices and close proximity to... Read more
