Never Again

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 16, 2011

I recently spent 3 nights at the Larkspur Hotel..3 nights I wish I hadn't. The pictures on the hotel's website do not portray an accurate view of the rooms. The rooms are very small, very old and have bathroom windows that cannot be locked. The bathroom is very small with almost non existent vanity space. Outside of the disappointment of the room I would bet money that the hotel is haunted. I and the individuals I traveled with thought the place was eerie and we never felt safe or comfortable. There were some strange happenings to a few members of my party... weird sounds, lights turning on in the middle of night while we were sleeping, things being moved in our rooms...etc..... The staff is friendly. The lobby is great. It's when you go upstairs and walk through the halls and in to your rooms that things get spooky. Definitely would not recommend and know for sure I will never again go back. I wouldn't be surprised if it is on a haunted registry list somewhere.

first sight of the hotel on our aarrival was horror we had just flew from las vegas and from a luxury spa bedroom in mgm, to a bedroom which you could fit into the bathroom we had in las vegas. but after the initial shock of the hotel decor. and the miniature bathroom, the room was clean and the bed comfy. also the added b onus was a luxury continental breakfast in the morning, fresh fruit yoghurt a waffle machine which you made yourself, cerial toast and jams also current bread, all very nice and set you up for the day, especially when you're going on an all day tour. staff were really lovely tony the concierge was a lovely man and you could arrange tours through him, also they have a shuttle to the airport $28.00 for two. what a bargain. union square just across the road. if you wanted a great sandwich the cable car cafe was just outside the hotel turn left then left again walk up the steep hill a couple of yards and there it is with it's artifical flowers in the window . but the sandwiches were great...
The cafe on the corner is a theme 50s cafe, foods okay but staff were not freindly. worth a visit for the rock n roll memerabilia

Unique Quality: the breakfast and free pc and printer in the lounge area, available day and night. lovely little extras, which helps you forget the 80s decor and dust sheets

Directions: union square distict

I do not usually stay at fancy hotels when I travel. I usually search for a bed and breakfast or an inexpensive but comfortable hotel that will not go over my budget. But sometimes you just need to pamper yourself a little and The Cartwright Hotel is a good place to do this. The Hotel offers a complimentary breakfast each morning. The staff is courteous and very friendly making you feel right at home. The rooms are large and spotless. Nothing is left out for your comfort and relaxation.

The hotel is centrally located on Sutter Street just off of Powell Street at Union Square.

Unique Quality: Every morning there is a complimentary breakfast. This is not just the usual bagel, juice and danish. There is a full breakfast bar with waffles, cereal, bagels, danish, yogurt, and fruit. A coffee bar is open 24 hours for your use in the breakfast area. You can make yourself a cup of coffee or tea anytime you would like. Each afternoon the hotel hosts a fresh baked cookie social in the lobby. And each evening at between 5 and 6 o'clock there is complimentary wine served in the lobby. This allows for time to meet other guests, to relax, and finish off a busy afternoon.
