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

Excellent location. Final room clean and comfortable. However despite booking more than six months in advance a two queen room, we were initially put in a weird kid suite( with a talking clown) and one bed. Alex on reception even lied to us and said it was an upgrade, and the hotel was full. After a heated conversation in which... More

Located in central downtown SF, just a block from the Cable Car Powell Station and the subway. is a renovated building in a modern fashion. The hotel has access to a restaurant next door (Tad´s Steakhouse) that is quite fine for breakfast and subs. There are a lot of option for other hotels in the area, but it deserves a... More

I have stayed in SF many, many times in the last 5 years. I have stayed in old hotels, new hotels, ugly hotels & beautiful hotels. I booked this room based on the pictures on the website. The rooms looked very "hip" and modernized considering the building is almost 100 years old. I figured since i was taking my girlfriend... More

This hotel is right in the middle of Union Square. It is an older boutique hotel with unique design and style. The staff was wonderful, the room exceptionally clean, and is located in the middle of shops and restaurants. There is a wine reception every evening and a coffee/tea bar in the mornings. One downside is the parking. It gets... More
