Washington Square Inn Review

Overlooking the tree-lined park of its namesake and surrounded by fine shops and cafés, this gracious corner B&B sits at the foot of Telegraph Hill in the heart of North Beach. Both large and small rooms are individually decorated with Venetian and French accents; upgraded bathrooms are done in imported marble and tiles. Many rooms have gas fireplaces and beds with 400- to 600-thread-count sheets. Up-to-date technological amenities include iPod docking stations and flat-panel TVs. The lobby, which has a gleaming mahogany fireplace and brass chandeliers, is the setting for free wine and antipasti in the evening. A complimentary Continental breakfast is served by the front windows.

    Loved the WSI & the North Beach area

    We stayed here for 3 nights in May 08 in Room 16 which was a quiet room overlooking the courtyard. Great location - walked everywhere! Enjoyed Beach Blanket Babylon which is just a short walk from the inn. Highly recommend!

    Nice rooms, nice location.

    Atmosphere's a little precious.

    Management is rude. Sort of like a mean Victorian aunt, with a streak of paranoia.
