This hotel, other than it's location does not live up to par to its supposed four star rating. The valet service is bad and half the time there isn't even a valet around. I requested my car but it took them about an hour to find it. Bathrooms are extremely cramped, for once you go in you only have enough room to stand right in front of the sink because taking one step back means sitting right on the toilet. The air conditioning is so old that it makes very loud noises that takes at least two nights to adjust to if you're a light sleeper. The only perk I can think of is the Wi-Fi that's in the room and the lobby. Overall, I would not come back again unless it was paid by someone else and given to me as a gift.
I love this place. One of my favorite places to stay when I am in San Francisco. Excellent location. Right on union square. The service is wonderful. The rooms are very nice. Be sure to ask for a room at the back of the hotel if you want it to be quiet. I love the afternoon wine tasting.

Lovely room, impeccable service and charming lobby/restaurant. We needed some extra help since we had our dog with us and were holding a meeting in the hotel. At every turn, the staff took extra pains to help us and smooth our path. Rooms are not big, but more than adequate. This is our first choice for a San Francisco small hotel.

We had what I think is one of the larger rooms (#601- w/ 2 double beds and room for a roll away), a corner room overlooking the Powell/O'Farrell intersection. There was street noise, but except for the cable cars, no more than you would experience in any downtown hotel in SF or other city. The room was very clean and ours looked as if it had been remodeled recently. I had called ahead for a roll away and was quoted half their usual daily rate. When we checked in they were going to charge the higher rate. When I explained the phone call, the clerk conferred with her supervisor, apologized and charged the lower rate. This was a family vacation, so my sister, and my brother & sister-in-law were also staying in the VF. Each had rooms with king beds, but the rooms were small. The lobby is charming with frescoes, comfy seating, and it overlooks Kuleto's restaurant. In the a.m., it was a great place to plan our daily explorations over complimentary coffee. The wine tasting was a nice way to begin the evening after freshening up. The location between the Powell/Market cable car terminus (& BART station) and Union Square gave us an opportunity to interact with a very interesting cross section of society. We found the staff to be friendly, accommodating, and most helpful. The concierge bent over backwards to take care of our requests. Because of the location, its quirky charm, and character I would recommend it for a vacation stay. However, I don't think it would be near the top of my list if I was traveling on business.

i am still in shock from the absolutely horrendous experience i had at this hotel. i cant believe this is a kimpton property. the rooms are cramped, the bathrooms dreadful, the beds uncomfortable, the noise from the streetcars on Powell completely over the top, and the serivice, well, jawdroppingly bad. the valet lost the keys to my rental car and proceeded to spend the next hour melodramatically checking his pockets and rifling through drawers and making excuses and acting like i had seriously inconvenienced _him_. at one point, he actually suggested that i pay for a tow truck for the car and then submit the receipt (!!). and this wasn't the only issue. i would write more, but i am too exhausted from this ordeal. my advice: avoid this place at all cost.

Tiny rooms. Even tinier bathrooms. VERY noisy if you get a room facing Powell--regardless of what floor you're on. I do NOT recommend for business travelers. The ""free hi-speed wireless"" Internet connection they promised never worked, and I couldn't get anyone on the staff to care.
There was a major mess-up with my room (not going to go into details here), but it was the staff's fault, and they were completely unapologetic. I've stayed at other Kimpton hotels before and been happy. This one was a BIG let-down.

friendly, professional service. room as advertised. interesting architectural details. excellent food in both coffee shop and restaurant. right on cable car line. however,the Union Square area is over-run with agressive panhandlers. unless you have business at the convention center, stay in another part of the city.

Villa Florence lost our reservations and was not at all helpful finding us other accomodations. The staff was rude not only to us, but to other guests as we observed during the 2 hours we sat in the lobby trying to find another hotel with an available room. I would not recommend this hotel.

I love hotels from the Kimpton Group family, and this one almost made it. The lobby is fun, the location is great, the wine reception every night from 5-6pm is enjoyable, but the rooms are lacking. We got a great rate on Hotwire. If you are staying for a longer time than maybe a few nights, I would reccommend one of the bigger hotels. The rooms here are just too small, and the bathroom is 5x3'. The valet though is the worst in the city! They left our windows open during the rainstorm wherever it is that they parked my car, and when we got in there were water drops everywhere, and the seats in the front were drenched!! Park down the street in a gargage that has overnight service or don't rent a car, it's not worth the $30 they charge a night for parking!
