Nice hotel, good location, great stuff, the rooms are small but comfortable

We only stayed one night here but enjoyed it. The staff was friendly, the hotel is in a convenient location, and the room is small but comfortable. I was prepared for the small room and bathroom, which did not bother me one bit. The bed was comfortable. The Larkspur is located across from a Walgreens and 7-11. Which was handy due to our baggage having been lost in our travels. We were able to go buy toiletry items very easily. I believe Larkspur also sells toiletry items. Next door is a diner that is open late. I was hoping to try the bar inside the hotel but it was closed at the times were were there. I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again.

As my wife and I often choose to spend weekend getaways in San Francisco, we have found our home away from home at the Larkspur Hotel. From the great location to Union Square, shopping and restaurants, the comfortable hotel room, it was the entire staff that won us over. From the bell person, to room service, to the entire front desk, our future stays in San francisco will be at Larkspur Hotel.

This hotel was far too expensive for it's worth. I spent $700 in 3 days for an average looking room. I thought I was getting me a good deal, but when I saw the initial room, I had to upgrade. The upgrade price was horrific, $100 a night. The porters are wonderful but the staff are rude. Parking is an additional $27 a night. Pay the same or slightly higher price somewhere generic and at least enjoy your room and stay.

Our stay at the Larkspur was absolutely perfect. The location is ideal for nearby shopping or access to the wonderful public transportation options available. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. We will definitely return.

This hotel is very charming. Our room was just right for the two of us and very clean. The location is perfect for anything you want to do. The staff was very friendly and helpful and took the time to answer all of our questions and give money-saving advice. Kevin, thanks for all your help. Cheapest parking rates around. We would definitely stay here the next time we visit San Francisco!

My husband and I really only needed a place to sleep while visiting with friends running the marathon. The location was perfect and the room was very clean. The room was a bit on the small side but adequate for our needs and the price was great. The staff was very courteous and quite helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here during the Nike Women's Half Marathon. Perfect location for this specific event. Close to Powell St. and the cable cars. Friendly staff. Highly Recommended.

I had this room booked for a business purpose on a budget. I was pleased. Not sure if you're looking for a pleasure hotel. The building was old and the room was small. Not as good as the picture in their website. But I really love the location! Everything was walking distance and public transportation was very easy to reach. I just hope they could provide a parking validation to save some cost, but for the room price, it's really a bargain to have it in such a location.

Room and bathroom were very small, but very clean. Beds were comfortable. Location was great. Except the parking garage was around the corner for self park.

We enjoyed buffet breakfast included in our hotel rate and this consisted of fruit juice, croissants, cakes and pastries with apples, bananas and tea or coffee. Our 7th floor room was on the back and although not a large room had everything we wanted - comfortable bed, large TV and a small well equipped ensuite. Rooms on the front may be noisier due to the busy road so higher rooms might be preferable - 8 floors. Great location the hop on and off bus stops at Union Square round the corner. Impressed by friendly staff and free wine tasting event at the hotel for an hour at 5.30pm. Only down side is the lack of free parking it costs 26 dollars a day in nearby public carpark. This is subsidised rate for the hotel (normally 40 dollars per day!). We didn't need the car in San Francisco so rather a waste for us though it made getting to the airport easy at the end of our stay and we would have had to have paid for a taxi instead. Overall highly recommended.

As soon as we walked into the room, I said, "Oh, I'm going to hate having to check out of here tomorrow!" And the beds were so comfortable that we almost didn't leave!

This is an older style hotel a block from Union Square and a 5 - 10 minute walk (uphill) from the Powell St BART station. The room was small but adequate with a bath as well as a shower in the small bathroom and a large walk in closet. The furniture is wood - desk, chest of drawers side tables and the ceilings are high, giving an old fashioned elegance. They have luggage storage facilities, a cafe and bar downstairs. There are plenty of shops, restaurants etc within in a few minutes walk and the cable car stop is only 100m away.

Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. The bowl of fruit in the lobby and the happy hour were appreciated. Breakfast options were a bit too limlted.

We have stayed at many hotels around the world and The Cartwright was the best. The rooms were clean, service was good and location was wonderful but what makes this hotel better than the others is the friendly people working there. The people at check in where very helpful, fruit on the counter was a nice touch and the best by far was the free wine tasting every night. The wine was very good but the idea of all the tourists meeting every night in the lobby for free wine and conversation was wonderful. We will definitely stay there again and have recommended this hotel to many of our friends.

The hotel was still under remodeling although it was said to be finish in March, so it was a bit disapointing. The lady in reception wasn't much into smiling so I didn't feel very welcomed. Fortunally it was the only day she was there and the rest of the staff was very friendly and helpfull. I stayed for three nights with no inconvinients. The room was a bit smaller than expected but ok. The free wifi worked very well and that is an important matter to me. The location is excellent. The hotel should have a small room with tables to have a morning coffe with some cakes.
