Overview

The refined 1925 Gothic-style building that is home to the Kensington Park Hotel is a two-minute walk from the shops and restaurants of Union Square, with many rooms overlooking Nob Hill. From the hotel, guests are just a few blocks away from cable car and BART train stops, making popular tourist attractions like Fisherman’s Wharf and Golden Gate Park easily accessible.

Rooms are decorated with a classic palette of deep reds, dark woods and vintage styles accented by rich marble and crystal chandeliers. The traditionally-styled units are equipped with modern amenities like free Wi-Fi, Serta Perfect Sleeper king or queen mattresses, iPod docking stations and flat-screen TVs. Guests can choose between one or two beds, sleeping up to four guests per room, and upgrades to higher floors with better views are available. Large groups can spread out in the top-floor suite, which includes a canopy bed in the master bedroom, a formal dining room with seating for eight, two full bathrooms, fireplaces, a pull-out sofa and views of Union Square.

Fresh coffee is available in the lobby each morning, and tea service is provided throughout the day. In the evenings, guests are welcome to join the evening sherry hour. On-site restaurant Farallon serves locally sourced seafood, including an expansive raw bar under jellyfish chandeliers and glittering columns of kelp.
