Hotel Allegro is elegant, yet fun. It is tucked away from the bustle of the city, yet a short walk to Millennium Park. The Allegro Kids Rule summer program includes a Kids Hour with lemonade, popcorn, Wii, and board games. The scavenger hunt with kid-friendly stops is a great way to see the city.

Krista: My parents just stayed in a Kimpton hotel in San Francisco and really enjoyed it. It was also elegant but fun - good stuff!

Erin-MommyontheSpot: Kimpton's locations in San Francisco look amazing!
