Hotel Fusion is an oasis in the middle of the hustle bustle of Union Square. Conveniently located within walking distance of everything you want in San Francisco; Union Square, Chinatown, Market Street, The Embarcadero... and on and on. It is surrounded by all the restaurants, convenience stores, and shopping you could need. The Powell Street Cable Car turnaround is a... More

Price was right, location was ideal, but the smell, crunchy carpet and darkness overshadowed it all. Had to buy Febreze to last through the night. If your needs are purely utilitarian or you plan to pass out rather than go to sleep, this could be the place for you; I won't be returning.

Good location and very humble staff. Room is good clean with all the facilities available as mentioned on the web. Improvement required for the breakfast as its served/kept in a room from where you have to collect and take it back in your room.

Apart from getting over the price of accommodation in San Fran. The hotel itself is located just a street away from the heart of the city with shops and tram. Hotel was cleaned well however it was a bit cramped and the air con unit was LOUD. Please buy ear plugs. Staff were very polite and professional. Overall a pleasant... More

We walked in the front door and I took a deep breath - not impressed! Down the dingey corridor and we were were greeted by smiling staff. Check-in was smooth and we were soon on our way to our 5th floor. Then our impression changed -the corridor was full of light and clean. Our room was clean, the bed good... More

About a block from Powell BART station, and just a couple blocks from Union Square, this hotel is right smack in the middle of the best restaurant, theater, shopping districts in San Francisco. Yes, the rooms are a little small, but the VERY REASONABLE PRICE and the exceptional location more makes this hotel an excellent value. This boutique hotel is... More

I normally stay at boutique hotels similar to this one. As an avid "do-er" when I'm on vacation, all that I need in a hotel is a clean room and helpful staff. I can't say enough good things about this hotel or the staff. Our room was a delux queen, and it was very clean and comfortable. The staff were... More

My family of 3 stayed for 3 days for a holiday. Excellent experience overall - very clean, great location and good service. Our room was spacious enough for us, in particular over the brief time we were there. The location was perfect for exploring San Fran.

I had a four-day stay at Hotel Fusion last month for a solo getaway vacation. Overall, I had a positive experience.

First impressions aren't that good, but the hotel does grow on you. Rooms are very small re above, as is the bathroom. No room to move in it at all. Room was 'tired' and needed renovation. We were on the 3rd floor and didn't hear any street noise. Room amenities good. Nice clean linen.

Staying in Union Square

Neighborhood Profile
Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.
