If you're looking to be right near Union Square but not paying a fortune, this is a reasonably-priced hotel (I wouldn't call it "boutique" myself) with pleasant staff and the kind of rooms you'd expect in an old SF building - a bit small, but perfectly clean and adequate. If you're doing San Francisco "right" you're not going to be... More

Great Location. -- Near Cable Cars, Union Sq, Shopping. We reserved a Kids Suite - large corner room with trendel bed for kids and excellent king bed for parents. Kids loved it. Parking $40 overnight. Hotel located in the city and you should expect noise - however we were up early and it wasn't a problem for us. Just one... More

We loved our stay here. We had a great sized room with a fab shower, fridge, safe and big comfy bed. Hotel was nicely decorated and high standards of cleanliness. Great location and despite being in the city we didn't find the noise a problem. The only thing missing was a kettle.

Although Hotel Union Square has an excellent location, the room I stayed in was incredibly small and a major disappointment for the price I paid. Bathroom and work desk space was also not up to par. Flimsy work desk chair too. Security lock didn't work either and it took me an average of 12 times to enable the room key/card... More

I'm staying at this hotel for 4 nights (5 until 9 March 2014) with my husband at the 3rd floor. This is our first trip to US and since we will have a long trip, we brought heavy baggage. On day 2, the one and only lift available in this hotel is out of service and continued until the last... More

Very friendly and welcoming on reception and helpful concierge. Recently refurbished room overlooking the street with no noise problem from traffic or cable car. Useful diner two doors up for breakfast. We missed the wine receptions... More

This ended up being a gem of a location to stay at having a business function near by. Close to anything you'd like to do downtown including great restaurants, BART and trolley cars. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would have given a 5, but during our stay there were elevator issues and then something going on with the... More

Our stay at Hotel Union Square was phenomenal. We were lucky enough to stay in the penthouse suite and greatly enjoyed the rooftop balcony. The contemporary decor was right up our alley. The little window in the shower provided an awesome view of the city. The staff, concierge, and hotel manager were all very friendly and hospitable. The location of... More
