“Great hotel, reasonable price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We enjoyed a night stay at Hotel Adagio for sigtseeing before we headed onto Napa Valley. The atmosphere is wonderful, decor is lovely, service is superb, rooms are spacious and comfortable, etc. I can go on and on. This is just top-notch, we will definately stay here again the next visit. The entire staff is very kind and helpful, you can't go wrong with this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were doing a tour of the West Coast, and this was our first stop. Welcomed into a lovely hotel, however arriving at 9 o'clock after almost a day of travelling, we were pretty tired and we were told that we only had a room booked for 1 king size bed? Luckily, the staff sorted it out and although we had a sofa bed and a mattress the first night, the next 2 nights we were in a lovely room with 2 queen sized beds. Liked that the hotel offered complimentary Starbucks coffee and tea and the staff were very friendly. Great location on Geary St, some lovely resteraunts nearby. Would reccomend Lori's Diner just down the street.

Room Tip: Ask for a high up room to get a good view of SF.

Thank you for including us in your tour of the West Coast, Sally S! We apologize that upon your arrival we did not have a room available that fit your preferences. Your fair assessment based on the following 2 nights of your stay is greatly appreciated. It is also very nice to receive your input on our complimentary Starbucks coffee and tea. We understand how providing special complimentary amenities and outstanding customer service truly separates us from the other properties in our area. We hope your future travel plans to the U.S. bring you and your family back to see us!

Stayed in the Adagio for the first 3 nights of our USA coast to coast adventure. We loved it. Very central for Union Square and easy for access to other parts of the city. Friendly, helpful staff on reception and also in the bar who told us about the fires in Yosemite our next stop on the trip. The most comfortable hotel bed we have ever slept in and great pillows too!! We were on the 5th floor facing the street, no complaints about the room it was spacious and very clean. Try the little diner over the road too - cheap as chips and tasty!

Dear samgreen18,

Thank you for making us a part of your USA coast to coast adventure! What a thrill it was for us to hear that our rooms have the most comfortable hotel bed you've ever slept in, along with great pillows! We are very happy that you loved Hotel Adagio and all that separates us from the others in our area; fabulous service, rooms and location. We hope that the rest of your USA visit went just as well and we will look forward to seeing you on your next adventure!

The hotel is in a wonderful location and it provided easy access to the rest of the city. Wonderful staff and clean rooms made this an easy trip. I enjoyed the grabbing a drink in the nice hotel restaurant and the fact that all my local friends were familiar with the location.

This was a last minute booking and honest opinion best hotel in town. They're an Autograph Collection and they make you feel right at home. It was a unique experience. Lobby and room was spotless. Service was immaculate and location of hotel was great! Two blocks away from union square and main attractions.

The Adagio is a trendy personal-sized boutique hotel in the shopping/restaurant/nightlife center of Union Square neighborhood.

Neighborhood: Although the neighborhood outside is a little gritty, between Union Square and the quite-gritty Tenderloin area, it's also amidst the city's pulsing restuarant, shopping, drinking streets, at center of San Francisco.

Hotel: Handsome lobby with high cielings and open-flow to small lounge bar.

Room: Ask for a corner room! Wonderful light flooding the room from two directions, very spacious. Sizeable bathroom. Immaculately clean. Excellent bed/mattress/linens.

Staff: Very professional, friendly, efficient.

WiFi: My only complaint, the WiFi had poor signal/speed/connection in both my room and the lobby. Not recommended for the business traveller who plans to do significant work from the room/hotel, particularly if dealing with big-files attached to email or anything requiring a good solid WiFi speed/connection.

I'd recommend the hotel to friends, family and would be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a Corner Room; mine was flooded with natural light from windows on two sides, with view down...

If you like looking at brick walls or listening to the elevator or hallway noise, this is the place for you! Otherwise, just pass on this one. the front desk claimed all rooms were spoken for in spite of us using our gold Marriott points. Overall a disappointing stay

Dear Bob N,

Naturally, we are displeased that your stay was disappointing. Please accept our apology. We do our very best to fulfill our guests' requests and always hold our Marriott Rewards Members in high regard. It is our pleasure to relocate guests into another room that better fits their preference; however, when operating at full capacity our options are quite limited. We appreciate your patience and understanding, and regret that we weren't able to make things right on this occasion. Again, we are sincerely sorry. Our hope is that you will give us another chance to accommodate you and deliver an improved experience.

Best Regards,
Michael Pace, General Manager
