The hotel is more characterful than a lot of business hotels in the area, but does lack in facilities. I felt I was mis-sold as there was no Gym on site. Instead there is a gym at a partner hotel around a block away, but there is no shower or changing facility at this partner hotel, so it's a pretty... More

Nice older hotel near Union Square, so the location is great. Hotel clerks polite but reserved Rooms are a bit small, as one would expect in an older hotel. Beds are very comfortable. But...my room was very warm, even with the heat off. Only relief was leaving a window open all the time. Which was nice, at times, but at... More

This is another of the Personality Hotels in San Francisco. I enjoyed a 6 night stay at this hotel. The hotel is very well maintained and the decor is beautiful. Each evening they offer complimentary tea and sherry in the lobby for guests. The bed was very comfortable. The location is perfect if you want to visit Union Square and... More

This hotel is in a great location, just a block away from Union Square. The beds were VERY comfortable and I slept like a baby every night we were there. Although the beds were extremely comfortable the room was very small. The room was kept very clean and the décor was beautiful. On the other hand, the bathroom felt like... More

I enjoyed a five night stay at this well located Union Square Hotel. My Royal Court room was small but comfortable and well appointed. It did not, however, offer a view of either Nob Hill or Union Square, as had been advertised (unless you count the Westin elevators as a view). Moreover, the hotel itself is a bit peculiar. The...

This is a hotel that believes it's own publicity and is far too complacent and pleased with itself. My wife & I spent 3 nights there and I would rate the hotel as just about adequate, No more than that. The bedrooms are on the small side and functional. Yes, it's quaint and has interesting decoration in the lobby; yes,... More

Clean room, nothing fancy. We had a corner room so it was a bit cramped. The location was great. Walking distance from shopping center and we were able to easily navigate to restaurants and tourist locations nearby.

This is my partners second time and my first time staying at this little hotel, which is located very close to Union Square. If you're looking for the classic/standard hotel experience then you won't get that here, but you will get a wonderfully quirky little old hotel which is excellent value for money, especially when referenced against other hotel charges...

We have stayed here for four nights, with one to go before heading back to Australia. Although there is no air con, we have been comfortable in our room. The hotel is in a great location & has that old charm appeal to it. The rooms are spacious enough & the beds comfortable. They serve sherry & Tea in the... More

We enjoyed our stay here for two nights. Very comfortable king bed and excellent location near Union Square. Good price. Concierge and Front Desk very helpful. Only complaint was the room doors are very loud when closing. Still would recommend.
