The Kimpton Buchanan Hotel
1800 Sutter Street
San Francisco, CA 94115

You’ve been to San Francisco before as a visitor – now it’s time to take things up a notch and experience SF like a local. There’s no better place to dive-in than right at the corner of Sutter and Buchanan, home to The Kimpton Buchanan Hotel. Our hotel is enviably located where Pacific Heights’ leafy streets and hip boutiques intersect with the ramen shops and J-Pop storefronts of Japantown and the Fillmore’s hot restaurants and cool jazz clubs. No wonder we have a TripAdvisor Walk Score of 93 (great for walkers).

Pairing perfectly with the understated luxury and residential vibe of The Kimpton Buchanan Hotel, our neighborhood is just far enough away from the tourist buzz and bustle of Union Square to make it accessible -- but a world apart. This is where you’ll make those amazing discoveries that will become your social media darlings. See a live show where jazz legends performed. Find your fave noodle house where the udon is piping hot. Take to the waters in a traditional Japanese onsen, or indulge in high-end pampering at a luxurious day spa. This time, make San Francisco your own, and live la vida local at the Hotel Buchanan.


The oldest Japanese immigrant community in the country, at our door step. Immerse yourself in the distinctive culinary and cultural delights of Japan during your stay.
