Funky, quirky, and upscale, this is probably my favorite hotel in San Francisco. The staff is remarkably helpful and friendly, the location can't be beat (right near Chinatown), and the rooms are both comfortable and unique (with a bit of a Dr. Seuss vibe). The whole hotel's also green - added bonus.

Why, yes, in fact, Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead and Kathy Griffin both designed guest rooms at the Hotel Triton. But fear not if you miss out; every room at the Triton is a hip rainbow of colors and styles, many with graffiti-esque art, chalk boards, or other whimsical design touches. The Triton is home to those looking for a creative and wacky adventure befitting the independent spirit of San Francisco.

This is a 3-4 star hotel, but within that class it ranks very high for service and location. The funky staff are genuinely helpful and nice. They delivered toothpaste within minutes, along with a bowl of jelly bellys. A personal welcome note was written in chalk on the bedroom wall. The decor is quirky. The bed is ok but a bit firm. Location is excellent. The hallway smell like dirty socks and the lobby could use a refurb. But overall this hotel is fun and good value for money.

Hotel Triton - I really liked this hotel. I found this from yelp and thought, why not give it a shot!
I got a special deal that gave me the room for the weekend (Friday & Saturday night) for $89/night for a queen size bed. I thought sweet. The total was $205 for the whole weekend. To make matters better, I called to request a room with a view but queen rooms do not have a view, so she felt bad for me and upgraded me to a King size room. (Also, I am a Kimpton In Touch member - become one)
So that was awesome. I made reservations a month in advanced.
So I got there and the lobby was adorable. I loved the colors and it just looked so trendy. It was also pet friendly, so I'm considering bringing my pet rabbit here one day.
We came in and checked in and everyone was friendly. She told me about complimentary wine (evenings), breakfast (didn't make it bc I slept in), hot chocolate (afternoon) and Wii fi in the room.
Score! So went to the room and here is the downside of hotels in SF, they are small. Unless you get a big room that has a living room attached. But I liked it because I like it was small, flashy and quaint.
FYI: The bathtub is high, so really lift your leg or else you'll hit it and it hurts.
The bed is comfy and you get a set of pillows that are soft. I just like the design.
Was going to call a cab to Pier 39 but the front desk guy told me I could save money by going on the trolley. The guy saved me $16! The trolley is really close (3-4 blocks) so you have access to a lot of places.
The location of the hotel is close to everything. You're right next to Chinatown which I went for souvenirs (cheap!) and for the Golden Gate Bakery. You're close to the Union Square shopping (score!), and you're close to the trolley that takes you everywhere.
Got to have some of the complimentary hot chocolate, sweetness.
Had the free wine and warm peanuts. It was nice just to rest in their trendy stylish lounge.
The great thing about Hotel Triton too is... the free printing of your boarding passes. I had to check in for my flight and print out the passes and they did it for me! Free. Awesome service.
Also, we told them a day in advanced we needed shuttle service back to SFO and they did it costing us $15 each.
I'd go back.

Perfect SF weekend visit location. Reasonably walkable to all the places you need to be in downtown and touristy SF. As other reviewers mentioned, this is a "funky' hotel. Great for people who are strong individuals. Those who have strong preconceptions of what a hotel should offer may not "get" the Triton. Note, the rooms are small, like NYC small. For a similar price you can get a bigger room but probably not a better location. The deals here can be really exceptional. When you takes it originality, plus location with a competitive price point you've got the makings of a favorite hotel getaway. Great bars and cafes on the same block. Ask for a corner room. Higher floors have less noise. Recommended!

Super fun hotel - lighthearted, colorful, and right outside the Chinatown Gate. A++ for location. Rooms aren't really fancy. The bathroom tiles look a little old (but colorful!), and the desk is pretty bare minimum. There wasn't a closet or safe that I recall, but the bed is extremely comfortable. The fitness center is in the basement and cramped, but what was I thinking working out in a basement when I had hills to hike? The Triton isn't as expensive as some other Kimpton properties, so I really enjoyed my stay for the price I paid.
