The hotel was very clean. The rooms nicely designed. They were small but set up just right that you didn’t mind it. I got reported for screaming which means the walls may be a little thin but nevertheless it was a good stay. They have wine tastings every night which was nice with

I know I’m very picky and I have and obsession with cleanliness in hotels but I think it is a must and a basic thing to have.

Since you enter this hotel the smell is awful, a mix of Indian scents and humidity.

If you are brave enough to accept the smell then you need to be brav

Staff is polite, informative, friendly and ready to assist; rooms are clean and well-maintained. Some of the doors on our floor (4th) slammed shut.Some guests didn't seem to care about this and slammed their doors multiple times in the morning. Overall though, it was a very pleas

Can anyone suggest a nice restaurant for a romantic dinner close by ? Going for wedding anniversary!

--We are considering Hotel Carlton for our honeymoon in August--how far from the nearest trolley station, is there AC and is there a tub or shower in bathroom? Thank so much for your time Lori
Hi we had a huge ceiling fan in our room it was very efficient and quiet. There was a tub with a shower over it. There are bus stops just round the corner. Trolley buses close by and tram car was at union square 5 mins walk away. It very hilly but you can easily walk everywhere. We got the bus to the golden gate bridge and walked across. Hope that helps

Hi, what is the best way of getting from the airport to the hotel? Thank you
So we used the bart from Oakland - pretty easy. To get from San Fran it’s also the bart and then a short walk to the hotel. Sorry I can’t be more specific but I’m not a great navigator. I just remember the whole process taking around 25mins including walk and train.
