This is a quirky hotel in a great location on Powell Street just down from Union Square and a short walk to Market Street. For someone wanting to see San Francisco on foot (or on the cable car) it's the perfect spot. The building is 'heritage' which translates to 'old' but done up. The rooms are pretty 'compact' but ours... More

I absolutely love this hotel. I stayed in RM 631- The Cable Car Penthouse suite.(upgrade upon arrival ) It was amazing, so spacious and comfortable. The location is perfect, there's literally something in every direction and that's just Union square! I would highly suggest getting a car service to and from the hotel if your flying in from another state,... More

My company booked several standard rooms at this hotel last August for several days. The hotel is located in a great area of San Fransisco and booked at a reasonable cost. Room was decorated with modern decor and the bed was comfortable. The room was diagonal to the elevator on the third floor, which was noisy at times. Note there... More

Love this place. Has lots of character. The rooms are clean and modern looking. At first my husband and I got the Sleep and Soak room, which was pretty spacious. But the lack of windows and the red wall didn't compensate for the space. So we upgraded to a Deluxe queen, which is small still decent size. The staff are... More

The first time I stayed here I booked the Dashiell Hammett suite and was very impressed with the amenities and nostalgia of the room. From the encased Maltese Falcon to the classic typewriter on the desk, it was like stepping into the past but with all of the modern conveniences. The view overlooking Powell street was wonderful. In addition, the... More

I'm back at the Hotel Union Square while on business again in SF. Again the hotel is welcoming with helpful staff. The free wine hour in reception has been very popular this stay and I saw many guests enjoy this along with the live music. This is a great idea of the hotel's. You can't beat the location.

Hotels near Union Square can be very expensive, so the Hotel Union Square offers a welcome option. Be prepared: the hotel looks like four separate old buildings put together, and rooms are small. I had booked a room that turns out to be "no frills" and means "no window." When I checked in, I was upgraded to a room with... More
