3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff was terrific, the location very convenient, complimentary coffee in the morning and wine in the late afternoon were nice, welcoming touches. The room was just barely OK, quite small, quiet except for the occasional clang from the cable car but so dark that even with all the lights on I had to use a flashlight to find things... More

We had such a lovely stay at Hotel a union Square. The staff were exceptional and went out of their way to help you within the hotel and info for your stay in San Fran. Every evening they have a wine hour in the lobby and on the weekends they have a musician playing as you sip the complementary wine.... More

This hotel is in the perfect spot of union square. Really, there isn't a better hotel that offers a better location. Having said that, the hotel is older (lobby is nice with live music) and my room didn't have that "ahh so clean I can walk with just my socks on" feeling. I felt as if the rooms were 'picked... More

We stayed at Hotel Union Square for a week long vacation. The location couldn't have been more perfect, right on Powell Street with the cable cars. There were car rental places very close, and the BART train station and MUNI stops were just a block away. It took only 15 minutes by trolley to get to Fisherman's wharf. hotel is... More

My girlfriend and I spent labor day weekend at this hotel and had a fantastic experience. Parking and unloading was a little difficult, until I went inside and met the concierage Jewel, who helped me with my bags and directed me to the valet lot, and gave me the directions I needed to pick up my girlfriend. Jewel's service only... More

This boutique hotel has the perfect mix of vintage charm with modern amenities. Stayed with my parents in a nice room with two comfy queen beds, nice linens and a newly updated bathroom. Perfect location for walking through the streets of San Fran. We'll be back.

Staff friendly upon arrival and throughout the 4 night stay. Location of hotel is perfect:close to shopping, union square, walking distance to fishermans wharf, trams and bike rentals etc. the room itself was quite dark and not very spacious and could have been cleaner. However the location outweighed the room itself

The Union Square Hotel is ideally situated, close to shopping, transportation (BART, MUNI and streetcars) and, of course, Union Square. Our room was MASSIVE, and quite comfortable. The decor is quite charming, befitting a boutique hotel. The bed was wonderful, and our room was quite quiet. (Our view was not spectacular, but this also probably helped in the quietness of... More

The room we got was tiny, the bathroom was the smallest ever, so my husband who is 195cm tall had difficulty using the shower... It was also very noisy, the building is very old, so the window didn't shut properly so since it was the middle of winter, it made our stay and sleep more that uncomfortable..... Will not stay...

I am currently staying here and dissatisfied with the room I got. Paid $234 a night and got a small room, with the sink separated from the bathroom. They didn't have a closet nor did they have a iron board OR a fridge. I had to request all of this when I got here. The only thing they had was... More
