Extremely comfortable rooms, tastefully decorated. Free WiFi, located right across from the Embarcadero. Helpful staff. Only thing that was missing was a fridge to keep cold drinks, etc.

I stayed here one night when in San Fran for a conference. Excellent location next to the Golden Gate Bridge and many other sites. The only thing missing was a view of the sites from my room.

We had a lovely room and it had air-conditioning (which was wonderful since we were in San Fran for two days when it was 100 degrees outside). The hotel was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.

The hotel is around the corner from the BART Embarcadero underground station, offering great links to the airport. The hotel staff were very helpful and made us feel very welcome.

        Room without a view - literally”
        Be careful with your room choice - although the hotel is well located and maintained, "premium" rooms such as the one we were put in, may feel claustrophobic given that the window looks out to a brick wall about 3 feet away. It's a window, yes, but NO natural light enters the room.

        Great Location, Small Room, Comfy Bed”
        This hotel seems a little expensive for the size of the room (we stayed in a "city view king"), but the location of the hotel (Financial District) makes up for it. So close to the Ferry Building Marketplace (with a great coffee shop, several food vendors, and other vendors selling various things), as well as Yank Sing (excellent dim sum). My husband and I were able to walk nearly everywhere, but did take Ubers at night. The bed is very comfy, which can make or break a vacation in my opinion. FYI, the sink is located in the room and not in the bathroom, so that was a little odd (but read up on the hotel's history and you'll see why). Also, the "standard" rooms are smaller than the "bay view" and "city view" rooms, so unless you don't care about a tiny room, ask for a room with some kind of view. Overall, very pleased with our stay! I don't like to stay at the same hotel twice, so I'm not sure we'll be back, but we would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

        Pleasant staff and very helpful. Restaurant next door is great in the evenings, but breakfast staff was not helpful, timely or pleasant. 7:30 is very late to start breakfast, and worse when they finally get started at 7:43. The Hotel does not run the restaurant, so no dings on the hotel for that.

Our room on the 3rd floor facing Steuart street was perfect: right size, bright, old brick wall, comfy bed and a good shower. We will be back, definitely!

        Friendly staff at check in. The hotel is very cute, room is small but quaint. We had a king bed suite for two people. Didn't have a great view from our room, but we didn't care. The bed was soooo comfortable. We liked ordering breakfast and extra towels off of a tablet in our room. PS. the breakfast was yummy! Close to the Ferry building, AT&T park and we walked to pier 39 a few times, about a 30 minute walk. I would highly recommend this hotel.

        The location is perfect and the building is beautiful - these are the first two things that hit you before you begin gushing about the inside. Hotel Griffon was one of the best decisions we made on our entire trip! The rooms are small but gorgeous. The staff - from the custodians to the reception - were just lovely and Perry's Restaurant was delicious (sit outside by the window - there is a heater and a stunning view of the Bay Bridge!). We cannot recommend it enough.

        Great location, near the Pittsburgh-Bay "Embarcadero" station, for those coming from the SFO airport. Nice and quiet street right next to the Ferry Marketplace, a great place for food lovers. Great service from Sharon at the front desk, expediting a room for us after a red-eye flight and spend almost one hour giving us tips of good places to visit and how to get around. The room was fully renovated, was comfortable and well designed to make good use of the space. If your room is not on the last floor, you can still take the elevator and see the view from the hall.

        Hotel Griffon is in great location near the ferry terminal, we felt safe at all times. The area has excellent public transport and is slot quieter than the busy areas of Union Square and Fishermans Wharf. The staff went out of their way to help, we were able to store our luggage as we arrived early. The housekeepers did a great job, room was clean and very comfortable. We had dinner at Perry's Restaurant attached to the hotel and this was also excellent and at a great price. Would definitely stay here again.
