The location is fantastic, we couldn't believe how close we were to Union Sq. The hotel itself is very clean, good concierge, afternoon tea & sherry every afternoon is a good pick me up after pounding the pavements of San Fran. Our room was at the back of the hotel so we were looking out on vents which we were...

I have stayed here twice and enjoyed my stay both times. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The bathrooms could probably use an update, but they are clean which I appreciate. The best part of the hotel is definitely the location, it is within walking distance to great shopping, Chinatown, and so much more! The concierge was...

This hotel is right next to Union Square, The place is clean and quiet. Breakfast is not included but they do have coffee and OJ on the floor close to the room. The desk staff was friendly. The room was nice the bathroom was big by hotel standards and Union Square is centrally located.

Great location at Union Square, close to everything. We requested a room on the back of the hotel and it was relatively quiet. The staff was very helpful & friendly. The decor is very dated and bathroom needed updating. But it was very clean and I would stay there again.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights while I was in SF for a conference. The location is excellent - right in the middle of Union square opposite the Westin St. Francis for half the price. It definitely has a vintage artsy feel to it - with older furniture and limited amenities (all clean though). The building is...

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The room was clean and the beds were super comfortable. The service was friendly, polite, and very helpful. Kensington Park is a great hotel, right off Union Square for an excellent price. I highly recommend it!

I stayed in the KPH for 4 nights in March 2013 and I couldn't be happier with my choice of hotel. This is a lovely, charming hotel in a great location. I was happy with pretty much everything about the hotel - reception desk service, the lobby decor, my room (warm, clean, well appointed, very comfy bed with awesome pillows)....
