    Dore Alley

    Perfect location and huge hotel. Its a classic with lots of history and charm. Market on Market is very convenient and perfect for picking up supplies or something easy to eat.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Refused to refund my stay even though I was unable to travel due to corona virus. This rating applies to both Expedia and The Hotel Whitcomb. Both of these companies had the choice to do the right thing, neither did. Not only will I never use Expedia or this hotel again, I will make it my mission to dissuade others from doing so. I hope both of these disgusting profiteering companies cease to operate ASAFP.

    The rooms look much larger in the pictures, it was challenging move past the overly large chair. The lobby was clean, most staff were inviting. There was however one night staff the called my partner an impolite name to say the very least which made her very uncomfortable and upset. I also just checked my credit card and there is a $60 charge from the hotel eventhough we left the room in ok condition (trash in trash cans, all dirty laundry in a pile) I will not be staying at this hotel again.

    Barely passes a Go!!

    This is a vintage old hotel that they have maintained by covering up instead of replacing and updating worn out decor. Wall paper is old has has visible signs of repair. There were holes in the wall where maybe a picture used to hang. They charge a $30 per day resort fee when you arrive that covers the in room safe, insurance on the safe, access to the small gym, wifi and daily room cleaning. This is included for free at all other hotels outside of SF in the bay area. That being said, I got a great deal and paid $100 a day. The bed was comfortable with clean sheets, the bathroom was clean, however the toilet seat was old and had gone thru many hole repairs, the toiletries were nice, the towels were newish and clean. I got a good nights rest. However the population outside of the hotel are drug addicts..tons of them looking like the walking dead on the street as you try to enter the hotel. If this is the best that you can afford, go for it, it gets the job done and is right in front of the MUNI and BART metro, so it will get the job done!

    Hotel Whitcomb for business

    Convenient for business, love the historical building - beautiful. Electrical in rooms is old, air/heating is old. No coffee in room, must pay in lobby. Bed comfortable, staff was great!
