U.S. News Review

Sitting about a block north of Union Square, Taj Campton Place bills itself as the "quintessential landmark San Francisco boutique hotel," and it has welcomed guests for more than 100 years. However, those who visited recently aren't quite sure what to make of this historic 110-room property. Travelers are quick to praise Taj Campton Place's location at the heart of the city, saying that getting to and from major attractions was a piece of cake. On the other hand, some guests claim that Taj is starting to show its age, especially in the guest rooms. Although each accommodation comes equipped with amenities like flat-screen LCD televisions, Bose Wave sound systems and Molton Brown bath products, visitors say that the beige and white decor feels tired. If you're not happy with your room's appearance, head to the open-air fitness center to take in the city views, or seek out a change of scenery and some fine California cuisine at the Campton Place Restaurant.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure

“When the honchos from LVMH and Neiman Marcus come to town, the 110-room Campton Place is where they stay. The hotel is on the preferred (i.e., east) side of Union Square, convenient to their SF stores yet insulated from tourists and the dodgy Tenderloin.”

Lonely Planet

“Impeccable service sets Campton Place apart — this is where to put your fur-clad rich aunt when she wants discretion above all. Details are lavish, if beige.”
Award: Lonely Planet Recommended


“For over a hundred years, this unassuming, upscale hotel has enticed travelers for return stays with their service and cozy ambiance.”
