We had a great stay here recently for the first stop on our honeymoon. Just 2 minutes walk from union square one way or 20 minutes down through Chinatown to the harbour area. Beds were really comfortable and the shower was great. There is a Walgreen's just around the corner for supplies. Breakfast was surprisingly good and service from all... More

As you enter the Mystic hotel you can't but appreciate the decor and the atmosphere . In the heart of downtown San Francisco you are well placed to catch cable carts, buses. Taking a short stroll gets you right into the shopping area. The room are on the small size( at least the one we were in) but every need... More

Very classy boutique hotel with friendly staff, and amazing beds. The overall design is contemporary, but a pleasant 1920's feel. The rooms are compact, but well designed and furnished. In particular, the beds are extremely comfortable (on par with the W's beds), and the showers are very nice: well-appointed, with good water pressure, high showerheads, and consistent temperature. The staff... More

The Mystic Hotel is a great alternative to the large, corporate hotels in the area. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. When I informed them that my friend was coming instead of my husband, they upgraded me to a larger room. The front desk helped me catch the right bus/train to Sacramento and find a place for... More

Absolutely loved this hotel! Upon check in were given an upgrade by the front desk manager, Stacy and she couldn't have been more pleasant. Waiting in our upgraded suite was a complementary fruit and cheese platter. This hotel is centrally located and walking distance from pretty much everything. Even though it was a busy weekend, with pleanty of outside noise,... More

The Mystic (formerly the Crescent) Hotel has changed very little despite the name change in all the right ways. This has become our favorite hotel to stay in when we are not playing tour guide for visiting family. Like other travelers have commented, this is a charming boutique hotel located in an older building and yes it is true, the... More

Mystic hotel is a leap away from anything you need in SF (public transrportaion, shopping, china town, restaurants and cafes). They have a small morning snack buffet with starbucks coffee and fresh juice. Nice rooms with free wifi. Check the bar in the second floor, good burgers.

We stayed for four nights in a 5th floor room with a queen bed, nice decor and a view of the alley where every morning about 6 am, we heard the trash company pick up the trash. The space is limited without the usual dresser for your clothes (we had to use the night stands). The complimentary breakfast was a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights at the beginning of July. We enjoyed our stay but were a little disappointed with some aspects of the hotel. Location The location of this hotel is excellent, just a 2 minute walk to Union Square with Chinatown a 5 minute walk behind the hotel. During our stay we... More

This place is fantastic! We walked in and had the best front desk experience ever. Stacey went out of her way to help and was very informative! She was happy and energetic with just the right amount of sass. We left the check out process laughing and excited to explore San Francisco! Love the Mystic!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mystic Hotel Union Square San Francisco by Charlie Palmer is a smart, sleek retreat situated in the heart of the city's busiest neighborhoods. Conveniently located just one block from the iconic cable car line in the middle of three key destinations – Union Square, Chinatown and the Financial District — Mystic Hotel offers a convenient, comfortable and unique modern boutique hotel experience in a historic location. With a contemporary look and feel, our accommodations are designed to reflect the changing need of today's traveler. Enjoy high-touch service and an ideal Union Square location, perfect for travelers looking to experience all the adventures of San Francisco. Like a private club, enjoy handcrafted cocktails in the Burritt Room, the intimate film noir-inspired bar named for Burritt Alley, where detective Sam Spade's partner Miles Archer was gunned down in The Maltese Falcon. Then, step into the speakeasy vibe of renowned Chef Charlie Palmer’s adjoining Burritt Tavern, where walled-in and curtained booths create dark corners for private conversations and Executive Chef Luke Knox turns out classic food like steaks and chops done right. Knox also takes advantage of Bay area's tremendous green markets as well as the extraordinary offerings from local food artisans in menus built around prized regional specialties from Dungeness crab to West Coast oysters. That's what we like about San Francisco: it's up to the minute and still in the moment. ... more   less
