Hotel Cosmo, A Kimpton Boutique Hotel hotel description>>
I chose this hotel based on the previous review and the great deal I found on Travelhero ($160 for 2 nights). My husband and I are in our mid-twenties, and enjoy staying in small, boutique style hotels that have personality. The friendly front desk manager gave us an early check-in and remembered small details eg. he gave us a message from friends asking us out to dinner, and remembered this when we checked out and enquired about our dinner. The lobby and adjoining banquet room also hosts art exhibitions and we enjoyed looking at some local art. Our room was spacious and immaculate with modern furnishings that appealed to our design esthetic. We especially loved the soft purple theme the hotel has used, from the exterior to the rubbish bins in the rooms. The location was just what we were looking for and we would definately stay here again.
Honeymooning at The Cosmo
Chose Cosmo on the strength of their website due to lack of reviews (an wanted to stay at an Art Hotel within our budget) for our Honeymoon base in San Fran and we weren't disappointed. On arrival we were greeted with warm smiles and efficient service. The lobby was 'as is' in the picture (larger than I have come to expect from web photos of other hotel lobbies) we took one of the 2 lifts (nicely finished with brown velvet walls and blue and white lighting and cool jazz playing quietly) to the 12th. floor. We were given a corner room which gave us 2 windows overlooking the Tenderloin towards Soma and Nob Hill towards Haight and golden gate park. the room was very clean, good heavy curtains and matching heavy bed throw on the extremely comfortable double bed. A TV, an Honour bar system which included stocked minibar fridge and basket of goodies, coffe maker and an iron and ironing board. The bathroom was a bath and shower combo of decent size with a hairdryer which as my wife would testify was extremely powerful. The room was cleaned everyday of our 14night stay and if you opted into the water conservation cleaning system for towels and linen they were replaced every 3 days...so we did our bit for the the san fran environment. My only critisicism (and this goes for every hotel I ever stay in) why don't they educate people to not let their doors slam shut... I would return to the COSMO again, and wholely recommend it to others, of course there is the 5-6pm free wine session in the lobby also, which lubes you ready for the city streets and the artworks within the hotel gallery areas ease you in to this Art driven city.
The Clarion Bedford has undergone a renovation since the year 2000 comments below. the rooms look quite nice - not a Waldorf Astoria quality but you will feel compfortable. It now also has a small restaurant and bar in the lobby area. The hotel has an evening wine reception for quests. The staff are still very friendly and attentive. They only need to have someone purchase and bulldoze the tacky-rundown dry cleaner building accross the street and turn it into a small park/courtyard area.
