Antiquity, picturesque urban views, and an unbeatable location.

What it's like

Your experience begins the moment you lock eyes on the Kensington Park Hotel. Its striking gothic-style architecture harkens back to an era of elegance in historic San Francisco. Entering the lobby is like stepping back in time – with its lustrous marble floors, tasteful crystal chandeliers, and hand-painted ceiling; all of which are original. The hotel’s spirit of service also remains unchanged. The welcoming staff is eager to make your visit to San Francisco special, and they’ll do whatever it takes to meet your every need.

Independent spirit

Welcoming and classy, personal and quaint.

Small touches

While the lobby hasn’t been changed since 1925, the rooms themselves have been updated to maintain a high level of comfort for the guests. After a day on the city, return to the Kensington Park Hotel for some restful sleep on your Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress, adorned with premium sheets and a plethora of pillows. When you wake, fuel up with some complimentary coffee, thoughtfully offered throughout the hotel, and do it all over again.

Eat and drink

Your dining options in San Francisco are limited only by your imagination. Casual dining, fresh seafood, and upscale culinary experiences are just a stone's throw away in Union Square. If you're looking to venture outside of Union Square, catch a ride on one of San Francisco's iconic cable cars or journey to Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, and Chinatown. If you're looking for something closer, check out the French Mediterranean-styled restaurant Ula, accessible directly via the hotel lobby. Pat Kuleto designed this maximalist art deco restaurant and bar lounge with fixtures that depict marine life and grand maritime vessels.
