Choosing Accommodations for Out-of-Town Guests

The only guidance wedding sites gave as to the selection of accommodations was 1) consider guests' budgets and 2) chose a location with local flavor. So last week we met with Megas of Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants.

She took us through two of their properties where our out-of-town guests would potentially be staying. The properties we toured were the Prescott Hotel and the Hotel Triton. We arrived after work when both venues were having their wine reception. The Hotel Triton features wineries that employ organic or biodynamic and sustainable farming practices. If you're staying on the Club Level at the Prescott, during the reception hour you'll also be treated to pizzas from Postino and cheese and sourdough. We both could totally see the cousins kicking it at the Hotel Triton, and thought that parents, aunts, and uncles might prefer the Prescott Hotel.

Prescott Hotel: Club Level & Club Room
Prescott Hotel: Deluxe Room

The Prescott Hotel is the more traditional venue of the two with two types of rooms - Deluxe and Club. These 164 stylish rooms and suites were created by noted California designer Sandy Blake. (Check out their website for a complete virtual tour.) Step back in time and get a taste of traditional San Francisco.

Hotel Triton: Kathy Griffith Suite

Hotel Triton - Pop Culture
The Hotel Triton located right off the entrance to Chinatown showcases the vibrancy of San Francisco. Here you have your choice of a variety of rooms - Deluxe rooms, Suites, Zen Dens, and Eco-Premier Kings. Bright colors and elevators awash in purple and blue light greet you. Get your fill of San Francisco's eclectic nature.

How did you select accommodations for your out-of-town guests? Did you tour the properties? Which of our two properties do you like best? Help us decide!
