Great hotel BUT.. – It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at goo.gl/FPxYD They have some of the best hotel deals on the web!
Fun Hotel – I'll always remember the general manager being nice to us when we wanted to film a pilot here in 2004. The lobby is fun. They used to have free happy hr with a good DJ. Rooms are decorated with unique style. A little small, but who cares.
4 star is a bit more for this hotel, it deserves 3 star – I am agree with reviews given for this Hotel. I (personally) feel that if there is some thing not good in Hotel that is Management. When Hotel is on that location which is noisy, they should keep it sound proof so, some one can get relaxed in silence. I am an writer and stayed there for a night but trust me, it was very difficult to concentrate on my work.
Overall, staff and very much committed to guests. They try their best to make guest plead.
kitschy but all style over subtance – I am a San Franciscan with a long distance relationship. My boyfriend comes out on business a lot and I pick out hotels for his business to book so I can stay and give recs to friends. I was excited to try this as it is so cute and has that parker palm springs 70's feel. But they seem to have forgotten the first rule is to start with the bed. It was awful and the sheets were cheap and scratchy like a motel 6 and we were cramped in a tiny room like a Paris hotel. Lucky we had my flat to go to. So his company paid for 4 nights and we only stayed one sleepless one.
All hype, no service -- Update – This hotel was a complete disappointment. Sure, it looks cool, but the rooms are very small and the staff doesn't know the first thing about customer service. Upon check-in, after waiting four hours for our room to be made ready, we ended up having to wait even longer, because the front desk sent us to the wrong room. And if you need help with your bags -- hire someone off the street, because the Triton's staff will not assist you. The evening wine reception is merely a few bottles of cheap wine in a tub of ice and the cookies look like Keebler packaged cookies laying on a plate located on the front desk. The rooms are clean, but it takes all day for them to be done. We returned to our room each afternoon (around 3pm) and three out of four days our room still had not been cleaned! And after spending close to $1,000 at the Triton, upon checkout all we were asked was, "Did you take anything from the mini bar last night?" No "Thanks for your stay" or "How did you enjoy your stay?" Clearly, the Triton has let hype go to it's head. I've stayed at lots of SF hotels, and this one is by far the worst. If you are looking for a cool boutique hotel, do a search -- San Francisco has tons of them. Stay away from the Triton, unless you simply want to say you have stayed there, because that's all your money will get you. UPDATE: After contacting Kimpton, the manager of the Triton contacted me personally and compensated me for my negative experience. I will give the Triton another chance thanks to proper customer service.
cute little hotel, not so cute big bill – this place is adorable. there is free wine from 5-6, and rooms designed by such celebs as jerry garcia. it is in a great location, with wonderful cafe de la presse ajoined. it is however very expensive. the rooms are pretty small, and they do not keep it ventilated well enough.
So funky! – Great Hotel! An absolute favorite of mine. Whenever I go to SF, my friends and I check into the hotel and then head down for a bit to eat in the Misson District.
A Union Square treasure that pays homage to the ancient Greeks. – In Short
A mural of the god Triton presides over the boat-shaped reception desk of this whimsical yet tastefully designed hotel. The lobby is furnished with curved gold chairs, a purple ottoman and plump, comfortable couches, all designed by local artisans. The 140 guest rooms have received the same imaginative, individual treatment. Though not overly large, rooms are comfortable and well-furnished, with armoires, framed watercolors and honor bars.
Funky Rooms, Great Design, Service Okay – Had a good time here. The rooms are very interesting-- no cookie-cutter hotel-chain designs here-- and the location was close to Chinatown. We had some trouble with valet parking (our car was damaged), so don't bring a nice ride. Overall, a great trendy place to stay in SanFran.
Cool and trendy -- Very S.F.CA – I grew up in a sheltered little Washington town and this was my first trip to California. The hotel was very hip and trendy looking to me -- exactly what I expected from San Francisco. The colors (purple, gold and orange) were quite loud, but it was fun and inviting. The staff was AWESOME! Very friendly and helpful, they really made you feel like you were their most important guest. The room was tiny but very nice. All in all it was a great experience. A little pricey maybe, but worth it.
