The Kensington Park is a grand old hotel in San Francisco, within walking distance of Chinatown. The facilities are lovely and well-kept and the staff are friendly and very accommodating. As is common in older hotels, the rooms are a little small, but honestly I didn’t spend a great deal of time in the room. When I did, it was comfortable and filled all my needs. The afternoon tea and sherry is a nice little touch!

Love this hotel!
This is my 2nd stay at the Kensington. The rooms are always clean and the beds are comfortable. The hotel has the perfect location close to Union Square and great eateries. The staff is welcoming and responsive. I will definitely stay here again.

Ice machine only working on one floor...staff was less than accommodating when we called to ask for room service...it was supposed to still be operating but they would not answer..so the hotel told us to go to CVS...seemed an odd comment if in fact room service was still open 2 more hours...
