Loved the decor! Our room on the 9th floor was quiet. We slept with the windows open and had a lovely cool breeze coming in through the windows. Comfotable beds, spacious closets. Lots of old-building charm w/ up-to-date decor. A place with character!

"Hotel Carlton IS Joie de Vivre in San Francisco"

Lovely boutique and convenient boutique hotell. Staff is attentive and personable. Everything is clean, comfortable; rooms are quiet. Filtered water is a great touch. Terry at the front desk is hilarious and makes check-in a charming experience. The evening happy-hours with live jazz band is a lovely touch. When was the last time I had a hotel room with a walk-in closet? Nice surprise.

"Down at heels property."

Good: 1. staff is kind - tried to help us switch rooms; 2. good beds Unfortunate: Pets are allowed here. 1. The room smelled like a kennel. Hit me in the face when the door opened. Nauseating. Fortunately, the windows open. Pet hair in the bathroom. 2. Bad location in the Tenderloin district. 3. Hotel tacks on a $25 fee for 'amenities' which includes wifi, and some other little bitty stuff generally included in price. Altogether just one step away from shabby. Would recommend against.

This hotel was a great start to the beginning of our USA trip. We were greeted warmly by happy staff. Check-in and out was very quick and efficient. Staff were able to answer all questions we asked and we were given all the information we needed about the hotel, places of interest and the surrounding area. The complimentary nightly social wine and live music is a great way to meet and greet other hotel guests from all over the world and share stories of your travels, just a wonderful idea. We loved the quaint and unique décor which makes you feel right at home. The rooms are just like pictured on line, very quaint, clean, and the bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is modern and very clean. Be mindful of: 1) There is no fridge in the room - although not that big of an issue really; and 2) Inconsiderate guests that travel in groups and they have rooms on the same floor, leave their doors to their rooms open and have conversations from room to room, from outside their rooms into the hallways, speaking very loud and at times laughing till late into the night, not realising that there are other guests staying there that can hear all their conversations as well, although this isn't the hotel's fault, guests should be more considerate and respectful to other guests. We would definitely stay here again if we ever return to San Fran. The hotel is in an excellent location. Loved it here.
