The Occidental Union Hotel stands tall in the small hamlet of Occidental. My family wanted a cozy setting on a cold winter New Year’s eve and the Union Occidental was the unanimous choice. We arrived to a festive holiday setting…candles and New Years decor in the grand ballroom. After a champagne toast we shared a large family style bowl of... More

Historic, and always a must do visit but know ahead that they serve huge amounts of Italian food, good but not good for your waist line.

The Union is the perfect family place, we visit every chance we get. Our kids love the pizza parlor, game room and the parents can enjoy delicious family style meal and wine. In addition to the favorites like Chicken Parm and Bolognese they have a lot of fresh new items - we got the Spinach Salad this time and it... More

Union Hotel nails it on every level. The food is great and the portions are generous. The decor is beautiful - especially around the holidays. The service is always excellent. The hospitality is off the charts. Barbara makes sure everyone's visit is special. All of this is what makes us return year after year.

I've been going to the Union Hotel for almost 30 years. My most recent visit was the first in over a decade. In the best possible way, everything is exactly as remembered, they've even updated their "History of..." story on the back of the dessert menus. Excellent staff (ask for Joelle A. if you can), delicious food (Garlic Clove with... More

Had a great authentic Italian dinner. Service was amazing. Food was delicious! Great deal, each entree came with soup and salad. The added history and quirkiness of Occidental, California made the experience that more amazing.

We had a group of 32 spend a memorable December evening at the hotel for dinner. Fun and festive environment made it memorable for all. I think this may be the beginning of a tradition!

Great Italian food and large portions. I have eaten here for thirty years and have noticed the prices rising, and the quality of food occasionally dipping along with the service. At times it is incredibly noisy so stay away if you want a romantic conversation. Overall, I rarely give an "excellent review" but I would give the food an excellent... More
