“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Hotel is recently renovated. Lobby, bar and common areas are all terrific. Room was nice and plenty large enough for 2. Seems like some rooms have great views, although ours on the 5th floor was non existent.

Part we liked best was across the street from Union Square. Cable cars were around the corner, BART station 3 blocks away or so as was the F line street car (both walking distance)

It really is a perfect spot to stay at to explore the city.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel or its staff. This was a very special romantic weekend, and everything needed to be perfect. As it turned out, it was even better than that. The room was spacious and very beautiful and the service throughout the hotel was impeccable. Had we left the room, the location would have been convenient for everything. Do yourself a favor and stay here.

I stayed there for 3 weeks in June &July.

Hyatt's location is perfect for touristic vacation. It is in the middle of everything. You can easily reach to touristic places, shops and restaurants. When you are tired, you can go back to Hotel quickly to relax.

Rooms are large with nice view, elevators are fast, breakfast is delicious, bed is comfy..

But staff is best. Manager, frontdesk, bellmen, doormen, cleaning ladies, all staff of OneUp restaurant.. I hope I did not forget anyone.

Everyone tries their best to make your stay special and enjoyable. 3 weeks stay is very long and for problems arise, they were always available for solution.

Thanks a lot for everything.

We spent two nights in San Francisco to kick off an eight day California vacation. I looked at a lot of hotels before choosing the Grand Hyatt. The best things about this property are its location just up the hill from Union Square, the modern, clean feel to the property and the professional staff, doormen, etc. The room itself (10th floor, cityview, 2 beds) was a little small, though nicely furnished. I found the beds to be too plush, not firm enough. The bathroom door was a sliding door that didn't have a lock - not ideal when there are kids in the room!

For those who don't know San Francisco, if you take the BART from the airport (SFO) its about $9 and you get off at the Powell Street station and then walk uphill to Union Square, not an easy climb with luggage, cross Union Square and then go up another 50 yards to the hotel entrance. The walk was maybe 10 minutes, but Powell is pretty crowded most of the day. The cable car lines all run near the property, but the lines at Powell are ridiculous.

Anyhow, I was expecting a little something more from the Grand Hyatt. It had some nice aspects, including a nice sitting area in the lobby and a good happy hour in a nice restaurant/bar area ($4 wine glasses, beer pints), but all in all I think I may have been a little happier in a boutique property.

Room Tip: Our city view room on the 10th floor was nothing special.

This hotel is everything you'd expect in terms of service and quality from a Hyatt property. The location right on Union Square puts you in the middle of shoppiing and many great restaurants along with short walks to most of the city's highlights. Rooms were large, clean and well appointed with great views of the city.

Stayed here recently for 5 nights. It's in a perfect location in Union Square, near all the shops and restaurants you could want. Short walk to the famous cable cars and only a 40 minute walk down to Fisherman's Wharf. The drinks in the bar at 'One Up' we're expensive but what you'd expect for a hotel of this calibre. Only downside was the noise from outside as the windows were not sound proofed. Would definitely return.

This is a terrific home base to see many of San Francisco's sights, overlooking Union Square. I stayed for a week in June with my two teenage daughters. The room was clean, modern and spacious. We enjoyed the club room for breakfast each day and snacks in the evening. Check-in and check-out were extremely efficient and I enjoyed the fact that check-out and room service could be handled online. Wouldn't hesitate to come back. The only con: a little noisy due to construction near Union Square (not the hotel's fault) and thin walls. I hope I never have to endure my neighbor's loud lovemaking session alongside my kids EVER again!!

Room Tip: Ask for a bay view room, Union Square view is nice but was noisy.
