Nice location, decor and live music in the bar but that is about all the good i can say about it. Very noisy rooms, very small, and poor customer service. Upon checking in I got a note under my door that said the hot water would be off from 8pm to 8am... I stayed because I thought I could still... More

Very nice hotel, in the centre of San Francisco. Rooms are quite small but very clean. Not sound proof, quite noisy during the night. The lift is slow and stupid, should be fixed. The rates are not cheap, but so are all the other hotels in the area.

If you are looking to be wowed you'll be disappointed. Mystic hotel is a great place to crash. Clean, comfortable rooms and a decent " continental" breakfast. Location is great for Union square, trolley and cable car lines. Elavator is slow but it beats walking up the stairs with your luggage. Friendly and helpful front counter staff.

professional services and very warm welcome. you're in SF downtown close to everything : shopping malls, union square, the pier, the italian quarter and chinatown. the room was really elegant and with a lot of cachet. the restaurant and bar inside the hotel are also very useful for a tired traveller who just can't walk out anymore for dinner after...

Arrived at the Mystic Hotel for the first leg of our honeymoon and were greeted with an upgrade to a suite, which was a lovely and welcomed surprise! Our room was huge, beautifully decorated and styled, with everything looking brand new and so clean. If I'm being completely picky, the only thing missing was tea and coffee making facilities, but...

I wish that my wife and I had more than just the one night to stay. The best thing that I can say is that everything at The Mystic Hotel is well thought out. From the furniture in the room to the minibar selections to the restaurant on the 2nd floor it was obvious that nothing just "fell into place"... More

The only good about this hotel is location. I don't care about small rooms as I need them to sleep only. Upon my arrival back home I found an extra charge on my credit card. Called to the hotel to find out that I was using a bar. At the moment nobody could even explain what exactly I was drinking.... More

My wife and I are probably the easiest people to please, and we rarely complain. However, we switched rooms twice in one day in this hotel. The first room they put us in was 309, which someone on this site already mentioned has a direct view of garbage cans in a dark alley. We immediately asked to move rooms. The... More

A small hotel, but perfect for our city break. We weren't in the hotel much so it great location, perfect for walking, 2 mins from Union Sq. Stacey on front desk was very helpful with local knowledge and little insights for us about buses, transport, and restaurants. Rooms are small but ideal for a couple, nice bathroom, good shower, cable... More

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
