"High floor is great as you will not hear those noise from the rubbish truck n traffic."

"What I like about the King Geroge is that it captures the spirit of San Francisco. The extra touches puts me in the mood to really enjoy the city and its people."
Jerome c from Bloomington, IN US rated King George Hotel 9 out of 10 on November 25, 2003
"The first night we were in a room on the street side (Mason St.) It was extremely noisy ALL NIGHT LONG!! But, the front desk moved us to another room with no problems. Also, it was extremely hot in our room. The ceiling fan and opening the window helped but it became very noisy again. Did not sleep very well the 4 nights we were there. Beautiful old hotel though and the customer service of the staff was very good friendly and helpful. The only suggestion we have would be to serve complementary coffee in the lounge/lobby for patrons in the AM. Or have a small coffee maker in the rooms for your guests convenience. We'll be back-love San Fran! Midge and Steve Carstensen Redmond, WA"
