Hotel Triton: The Story of Our Independent Spirit

Hotel Triton embodies the independent spirit San Francisco is known for.

Each Kimpton hotel has a distinct personality and a soul of its own - a story. The stories are varied and colorful -- wine, art, literature, food and architecture, to name a few. Each unique story promises you adventure and delightful surprises while offering the familiarity and style of the Kimpton Hotels brand.

The story of Hotel Triton is The Independent Spirit.

From North Beach to the Mission to Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco is a city built upon individuality, creativity, inclusion and inspiration, all of which come alive at Hotel Triton.

A hip hotel in the hippest of towns ...

Keeping with this tradition of individuality, all of the hotel's guest rooms have been redesigned with a fresh and playful take on San Francisco iconography, both classic and contemporary. Loyal guests who are impressed by the hotel's amenities, fantastic location and genuine friendly service have formed a cult-like following since the hotel's inception.

In the 1950's, San Francisco's independent spirit gave rise to the Beatnik era, the first wave of pop culture not for the masses but for the open minded. Contrasting with elitist culture, pop culture has evolved through the decades, with San Francisco always an epicenter of expression. In the '60s, Haight-Ashbury or "The Haight" became a hotbed of psychedelic output, from music to poetry to political unrest. In the '70s, local music heavily reflected the country's conflict with the Vietnam War. During the tech boom, the Mission emerged as a vibrant neighborhood for local cuisine and music venues catering to the influx of young residents to the city. As the tech core has surged and receded in the city and surrounding Bay, these independent and freethinking neighborhoods have continued the spirit of open-mindedness and creativity that San Francisco is known for.

At Hotel Triton we aim to be a colorful playground for your inspiration. We are ardent supporters of the local arts community by serving as a showcase for emerging artists. When you visit, check out our rotating gallery of art on the Mezzanine Level. You can also sleep with a celebrity here, as we were the first hotel to let celebrities such as Jerry Garcia and Kathy Griffin design suites with personal touches such as artwork, quotes, concert memorabilia, photographs and personally selected amenities. At our complimentary evening wine hour, we aim to inspire and immerse you in the independent spirit of San Francisco with engaging activities such as poetry readings, live music, and tarot card readings.

True to the Independent Spirit, we are ever-evolving and changing. Although you'll always experience the same friendly and efficient service each time you stay, no two visits are alike. We hope you visit soon to see what new surprises we have in store.
