Wonderful, quaint hotel with amazing staff. They address guests by name and always greet you with a smile. Wonderful location, located 1/2 block off Union Square. And the continental breakfast, and wine & cheese reception were a big plus! And there were fresh baked cookies each evening!

Very neat boutique hotel, located just a 1/2 block from Union Square. Cable cars almost at your doorstep. Staff is very helpful and friendly. They provide wine & cheese in the evenings, and a substantial continental breakfast. Value wise, no downsides for this hotel. We would definitely stay again.

The Inn at Union Square has the friendliest, most genuinely helpful and welcoming staff I've ever encountered. The inn itself is cozy, well kept, and replete with thoughtful amenities which would be enough to earn a high rating but the staff's infectious enthusiasm leaves me looking for more stars to award! Vegans will enjoy that the complimentary breakfast includes almond... More
