Overlooking the San Francisco Bay, Treasure Island and the Bay Bridge, Hotel Griffon is a European-style boutique hotel located in the heart of the Financial District.

Quaint and cozy, many rooms feature original white-washed 1906 brick walls, high ceilings, original artwork, mahogany writing desks and cozy window seats. All come with plush beds that are "deliciously comfortable" (Lonely Planet), free Wi-Fi and plush robes. It's worth it to splurge on one of the Bay View rooms for spectacular views of the Bay Bridge.

Other complimentary amenities include town car service to the Financial District (weekdays from 7am to 11am), nightly turn-down service, fruit and coffee or tea in the lobby and free access to more than 2,000 newspapers through the PressReader app on your tablet or smartphone throughout your stay.

The hotel didn't have my reservation. The elevator was out. Overall the hotel needed some work. Overall this stay was a disaster. I don't even know what I was charged and don't have a receipt.

Location, customer service, and the room was very comfortable.

Construction next door was a little annoying in the morning. Not their fault, but it could have been brought to our attention. We might have upgraded to other side of the building.
