Hotel Zeppelin San Francisco

San Francisco, USA

The hotel

A salute to San Francisco’s cheeky nonconformist soul, Hotel Zeppelin has taken its historic shell and turned it into something completely contemporary. The result’s certainly worthy of its home in one of America’s most playful, cool, and bohemian cities. A monochrome backdrop plays host to splashes of deep plum and scarlet. Its guest rooms offer daring design and modern touches like complimentary WiFi. Its penthouse fitness centre flaunts city views. And its street-level Zeppelin Café unites rustic brick and sleek modern fixtures, making it a fashionable stopgap for coffee and pastries. Reflective of its fashionable setting near Union Square, its amenities and spaces are on-trend, from its partnership with cool Concierge providers Scout, who take care of your every whim, to its Peace Room, featuring a cartoon-covered ceiling, quick shot basketball wall, and oversized bingo board.

Loved this hotel. So modern and conveniently located near everything. The entire hotel was esthetically pleasing from the moment we walked in. Victor at the front desk had immaculate customer service and the housekeeping staff was more than accommodating. Definitely coming back!

Stayed here during a recent visit to San Francisco on a business trip. After being warmly greeted by the hotel staff, I took the opportunity to take a leisurely stroll around the lobby and game room becoming immersed in the eclectic vibe. Haven’t felt this hip in many a year. The room was small, but serviceable. Bed was comfortable and the WiFi solid. The AC emitted a periodic smell that I can only describe as musty. Centrally located to the financial district and an easy 10 minute walk to Chinatown and 25-30 minutes to Fisherman’s Wharf. All in all good value and a return to Hotel Zeppelin is likely in the future. Read less

When discussing noisy neighbors with the front desk they said “we are a party hotel” and we can give them a “gentle reminder” to keep it down after midnight. I travel often and despite its cool, funky vibe we won’t be staying here again.

This being our first time we really lucked out with this hotel. Just loved the decor, the staff, the room, the fire in the bar. Perfect location and had such a wonderful gentle buzz to it. Would highly recommend and will be back.

I just love this hotel and everything about it. The rooms feel more like a fun city apartment than a hotel and is warm and inviting. The staff could not be nicer or more helpful, and the lobby is comfortable and often has great music in the evenings. I have stayed here 4 times already and have never been disappointed about anything. Hotel… Read more
I just love this hotel and everything about it. The rooms feel more like a fun city apartment than a hotel and is warm and inviting. The staff could not be nicer or more helpful, and the lobby is comfortable and often has great music in the evenings. I have stayed here 4 times already and have never been disappointed about anything. Hotel Zeppelin is also really great for women business travelers that are traveling alone, which is a rare and special attribute. Awesome location, close to great restaurants and shopping, and fantastic all around. My only mini-gripe is that there is no counter space in the bathrooms, so if you have a lot of cosmetics, there is no place to put them. Otherwise, love love love Hotel Zeppelin. Read less
